Through the NDIA Accessibility Action Plan 2013 – 17, the Agency has committed to supporting the employment and career development of people with disability.

The NDIA aims to be an accessibility and inclusion world leader in the employment of people with disability. We work hard to attract, recruit and retain people with disability.

We support all NDIA employees with disability by being a Gold Member of the Australian Network on Disability (AND) (external).

RecruitAbility Scheme

The NDIA’s participation in the APS RecruitAbility scheme means we will progress an applicant with disability to an advanced stage in the recruitment process, where they opt into the scheme and meet the minimum requirements for the position.

You will be asked to indicate if you wish to opt into the RecruitAbility scheme in the Diversity section of the online application form.

You must tick the ‘opt in’ box to participate in the scheme.

Simply declaring that you have a disability will not automatically include you in the scheme.

Details about the RecruitAbility scheme can be found on the Australian Public Service Commission Recruitability (external) page.

Reasonable adjustments

We provide reasonable adjustments such as access, equipment or other practical support at relevant stages of the recruitment process. You can specify in the application form if you have necessary adjustments or please ask us at any stage.

If you need to contact us about reasonable adjustments during the recruitment process please send an email or phone 1300 138 337.
