RIAC is a not for profit organisation operating throughout central and north western Victoria, Geelong and southern NSW providing information, advocacy and NDIS appeals support to individuals, families, carers and communities.

The NDIS Appeals Support Officer/Advocate will play a key role in providing support and assistance to applicants whilst they navigate the process of seeking an AAT review of NDIS decisions. There will be a strong focus on fostering ‘self-advocacy’ where possible. Where self-advocacy is not appropriate, the NDIS Appeals officer will, in partnership with the applicant, develop and implement a plan which will provide effective support. The incumbent will also have specific responsibilities for promotion and education within the community and will have a range of reporting and administrative responsibilities that are required for RIAC’s quality assurance purposes and to meet funding body arrangements.

This position is part time and will be paid under the SCHADS Award with a total remuneration package inc super, leave loading, salary packaging and other generous working conditions.
