Job description


The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is an independent statutory Commonwealth agency. Our role is to implement the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), which will support a better life for hundreds of thousands of Australians with a significant and permanent disability and their families and carers. The NDIS will mean peace of mind for every Australian - for anyone who has, or might acquire, a disability.

Working for the NDIA means you have the opportunity to contribute to building a new Commonwealth agency from the ground up. The NDIA is still growing and creating its own identity while developing new and innovative programs for our employees and the Australian community we serve.

The NDIA has a strong culture, driven by passion for the work we do and commitment to supporting people with disability to achieve greater independence. Our people are pioneering the management and delivery of the NDIS. We also aim to be world leaders in accessibility and inclusion, the employment of people with disability and people with culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

The idea of people with disability being supported to live an ordinary life is central to the work of the NDIS. Through reasonable and necessary supports, the NDIS is helping people live a life with the basic opportunities many Australians take for granted.

We are now seeking to fill a range of expected or future ongoing and non-ongoing APS4 to APS5 Planner roles in a range of sites. Please review the position description for a more in depth list of sites with possible vacancies and note not all roles will be available in each location.


Successful candidates will be required to undergo a pre-employment National Police History check, and provide evidence of Australian Citizenship. Failure to do so may jeopardise your offer of employment.
Dependent on the role the appropriate working with children and/or vulnerable people checks may need to be undertaken as per State Legislation.


Non-ongoing opportunity will be offered for a specified term

This position will be offered on an ongoing and non-ongoing capacity. Non-ongoing positions will be offered for a specified term of up to 18 months, with the possibility of extension up to three years.

The filling of this vacancy is intended to constitute an affirmative measure under section 8(1) of the Racial Discrimination Act 1975. This vacancy is only available to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people.

RecruitAbility applies to this vacancy. Under the RecruitAbility scheme you will be invited to participate in further assessment activity for the vacancy if you choose to apply under the scheme; declare you have a disability; and meet the minimum requirements for the job.
