More than 2000 jobs in the disability sector will be created in Caboolture and Pine Rivers
Caboolture and Pine Rivers is about to experience a jobs boom with more than 2000 jobs expected to be created in the disability sector.
New figures released by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) show that 2100 jobs will be created in Caboolture and Strathpine over the next five years.
Queensland State Manager at National Disability Services Richard Nelson said the jobs boom would be powered by changing demographics and the rollout of the NDIS.
Mr Nelson said it would drive demand for a more diverse range of jobs.
“The disability sector offers the kind of flexibility, support and job satisfaction that many people are now looking for in a fulfilling career,” Mr Nelson said.
“The disability sector offers a broad range of career choices, from speech pathologists and occupational therapists to drivers, gardeners and IT professionals.
“The person-centric service delivery model for the NDIS will mean an even greater mix of jobs on offer, as people with disability choose for themselves the type of support that best suits them.”
Mr Nelson said students and young people, return-to-work parents and career changers would play a vital role in filling job vacancies and providing high-quality support services in the future.
“I urge anyone looking for job or career change to explore the exciting range of work and the meaningful careers available in the disability sector,” he said.
“You can find the latest jobs available on carecareers.com.au as well as helpful advice if you are new to the sector.”
