Plans Plans Plans, …
An important starting point was for me to check out the floor plan of the new NDIA Headquarters.
I can report it’s an open plan and David Bowen (NDIA CEO) & I both agree, it’s the way to go.
Now that we have the bricks and mortar sorted, it’s now about recruiting the right people.
It’s great to know People with disabilities are involved in the recruitment process as the National Disability Insurance Agency sets up its National Headquarters.
As one of the independent interview panellist, I can assure everybody that the candidates are most definitely being questioned about their knowledge of disability.
The real acknowledgement that Disability must be the focal point, arises during the panel discussion after the candidates have been interviewed and we assess their answers.
As an interesting observation, candidates applying for these positions do come from a diverse working background, so it is great that people disabilities are actively involved with the recruitment process to assist with selecting the right person for the right job.
Before I sign off, don’t forget the NDIS is having another webinar this Thursday 27th of Fab. at 12 o’clock EST. The title is A Strong Voice-Self Advocacy.
