To work for Ability Links and all registered NDIS providers there are a few mandatory things that we need.
Most of our team have families and we believe strongly in having a positive work life balance. We utilise a CRM that allows our support workers to see what work is availiable and allows us to match our workers and participants to get the best fit. It allows you to work with people that suit you, your skills and abilities.
Many of the team choose to be casual workers or contractors. Giving them control over their hours, caseloads and income.
We are focused on impact and sustainability. We are not profit centred. We focus on outcomes for the people we support, employee satisfaction and set each other up for success. This means having debriefing and career development opportunities available.
Ability Links’ mission is linked to improving services and opportunities for people with a disability. For the right people we offer support and consulting packages for those needing our help to improve or provide continuity or service, advice or debriefing.
