Make a Difference!

My Choice Supports is a flexible workplace provider run by individuals with over 20 years of experience in delivering care coordination for people living with complex and chronic conditions, and disabilities.

We specialise in working with people living with Psychosocial Disabilities, however we support people across a diverse range of disabilities.

The organisation has its foundations in our values of Partnership, Compassion and Innovation. These values are central to how we support the people we work with, as well as the staff on our team.     

We have a position available, working in the Perth central metro area for a Specialist Support Coordinator and a Support Coordinator/Recovery Coach providing support to NDIS Participants.

The NDIS Support Coordinator role coordinates assistance for Participants to build capacity and resilience through strong and respectful partnerships to support people who live with a disability, to live a full and contributing life.

The NDIS Recovery Coach role coordinates assistance to Participants to build capacity and resilience through strong and respectful relationships to support people with psychosocial disability to live a full and contributing life. This support is designed to be able to maintain engagement through periods of increased support need due to the episodic nature of mental illness. 

This role works collaboratively with participants, families, carers and other services to identify, plan, design and coordinate NDIS supports.

This is a position focusing on quality service provision plus the meeting of high-efficiency targets. 

My Choice Supports has a central and strong focus on support for all staff members including dedicated training, ongoing mentoring, team development and a training and development budget to support the successful candidate to deliver the standards required for this role. 

This is a work-from-home position, with outreach to see Participants face to face, as required. A minimum equivalent hours availability for the role is 4 days per week (can be spread over 5 days). There are regular online/phone meetings and supervisions.  

Please note that both the Support Coordinator and Recovery Coaching roles have significant non client-facing aspects and requires the successful candidate to enjoy following specific guidelines and pre-determined processes in order to successfully implement the operational requirements of the role from a home based environment, and to enjoy capturing this information in client management systems.

The preferred candidate will have a strong history in working with people with a disability, has a self-directed passion and drive to support capacity-building activities for the people they support, a compassionate and collaborative approach to their work, and thrive on finding innovative solutions to complex situations.
