The BLCW Program was first announced in the 2017-18 budget as a $33 million program designed to create more jobs in the disability and aged care sectors in regional, rural and outer metropolitan areas across Australia. A $9.1 million extension to the Program was announced as part of the 2019-20 Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook, to June 2021.

Contributing to the delivery of the BLCW Program offers a challenging and meaningful career working at the centre of the Australian Government's social policy agenda. Further details on the BLCW Program (in addition to the Regional Coordinator role) can be found on the Program€™s website at www.blcw.dss.gov.au

About the role: Regional Coordinator

Regional Coordinators (RCs) are expected to have capability equivalent to an Australian Public Service classification level of Executive Level 1.

  • Engaging with disability and aged care service providers in identified locations to gather market intelligence on risks and issues for NDIS providers, including information on the effectiveness of provider supports, in line with the objectives of the Program.
  • Gathering and documenting market intelligence in Program databases and reports.
  • Delivering insights on provider risks and issues to better inform DSS and/or Program activities, including events and website content development.
  • Attending, co-hosting or hosting regular events to engage providers and key stakeholders in the market around specific topics or issues.
