We are interested in hearing from people who are already established as providers of this kind of support, both registered and not registered with the NDIS. You will need to show you understand the requirements of the NDIS Commission (which apply to all providers). A commitment to regular professional development would be highly regarded. In some cases our clients would like to negotiate prices, this will be stated in the ad.
We are also interested in hearing from people who find work through a labour hire platform, such as Careseekers or Mable. If you don't already use one of these platforms, but would think this kind of work might be for you. We encourage you to check them out.
We appreciate that for some people, they will apply for many roles advertised by The Tree. In light of this, if you have applied before, please click the button below to skip to the end of the process.
If you think this kind of work is for you, but you want to be an employee. We encourage you to apply to one of the number of organisations that do this kind of work locally. There are quite a few!
The NDIS Commission is the body that overseas all providers paid using NDIS funds. This includes registered and unregistered providers. The Commission has minimum conditions that all providers must be aware of.
We recommend doing the FREE NDIS Commission Worker Orientation Module available on the NDIS Commission website. It is one of the best ways to get an overview of the Commission and how it applies to your business. The certificate of completion will allow you to prove to your clients you have done the module, and understand your responsibilities in the work you do for them.
In NSW all businesses who work with children need to do so within the NSW Child Safe Standards. This includes people who work with children through their NDIS plans.

Almost all people who work with children in NSW are also mandatory reporters. This includes people who are paid to work with children through their NDIS plans.
