As a Case Manager, every day is busy and demanding but very rewarding as your work will have a meaningful impact on people’s lives.

The Case Manager works towards this by ensuring clients:

 

  • can successfully transition directly into work
  • can successfully transition to work readiness, training, work, maintain independence, or otherwise maximise their potential
  • receive everything they need across the options of support and assistance we provide
  • can easily connect to services, support and opportunities available

We will provide you with a positive work environment, where we all support each other to achieve excellent outcomes for our clients. We will also provide great training, support and on-going professional development.
