Rewards and benefits of Administration and Management jobs
Working in Administration and Management with disability services organisations provides a rewarding career in an industry that makes a real difference in people’s lives. The disability industry offers workers a number of benefits comparable to other industries such as salary packaging and other benefits.
The disability and community services industry is one of Queensland’s largest employers and with the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), there will continue to be a high demand for workers into the future.
Under the NDIS, the number of Queenslanders receiving disability supports is expected to grow to more than 90,000 by July 2019. This means existing business will expand their services and operations and new businesses will start-up to meet this demand. Organisations may be transforming or starting their operations in a number of ways and may need assistance with marketing, new IT and client management systems, business analysis, market research and service evaluation.
