Why work for the NDIA

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the most significant economic and social reform since the introduction of Medicare in the 1970s. This new approach will ensure the economic, education and social participation of Australians with disability is maximised.

Joining the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) means you have the opportunity to help build a new agency. The NDIA is still growing and creating its own identity while developing new and innovative programs for our employees and the Australian community.

NDIA employees have a unique opportunity to be involved in the NDIS roll out across Australia. The NDIA is growing and it is a great opportunity to be a part of that development from the very early stages.

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.

This might mean getting involved in the community, enrolling in education programs, spending more time with family, entering the workforce for the first time or returning to work, receiving the right equipment or choosing the providers that best meet their needs.
