The National Disability Insurance Scheme (the Scheme) is a world-first social reform. It is a fundamental shift in the way Australians with a significant and permanent disability access support to achieve their life goals and outcomes. For many Australians, it will be the first time they receive the disability support they need.
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is responsible for the delivery of the Scheme for participants and building a sustainable NDIS that genuinely connects and engages the community and stakeholders. With more than 410,000 participants (estimated to grow to approximately 500,000 over the coming years) and management of $22 billion in funding each year, this an extraordinary opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people with a disability, their families and carers.
As the Branch Manager Procurement & Property Services you will be accountable to plan, lead and deliver highly complex procurement and property functions, outcomes, projects and work programs that have strategic and operational significance to the NDIA. This a strategic role that develops long term strategies and drives the implementation of programs of work to achieve NDIA's mission.
We are seeking an outstanding leader with knowledge of large-scale procurement in a public sector context. Your key objectives include the delivery of a highly complex property plan and managing the relationships and performance of shared services providers including Services Australia.
You will be joining an executive team focused on streamlining, removing obstacles and innovating so that NDIA can move quickly to achieve its purpose. If your performance profile features accountability, efficient decision making and execution, leading change and building organisational capability, even when there is ambiguity, you will thrive in today's NDIA.
NDIA welcomes and encourages applications from people with disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and people with diverse culture and linguistic backgrounds. The NDIA will provide reasonable adjustments for qualified individuals with disabilities.
