Pathfinders recruits and selects appropriately skilled and experienced staff through fair and consistent processes as embodied in NSW Government Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action policies. Whilst relevant experience, skills and qualifications are highly desirable, Pathfinders encourages all people who are interested in working in one of our Pathfinders programs to apply.
Linkers are key to effective ALNSW program delivery as part of the NSW Government’s plan to reshape and improve the way people with a disability, their families and carers in NSW are supported by placing them at the centre of decision making. Linkers will provide a locally based first point of contact designed to improve access and engagement in local community, mainstream services and disability services, where necessary. Linkers will work with people with a disability, their families and carers across the region to help them plan for the future, build on their strengths and skills and to develop networks in their own communities to do what they want with their lives, outside the traditional disability service system.
