The Northern Rivers application process
Applications submitted by the closing date are read by the panel and successful applicants are notified.
Team assessment: we understand that not everyone is comfortable being put directly into a formal interview situation. The purpose of the practical team assessment is to provide an opportunity for you to meet the interview panel and demonstrate your interpersonal skills in a more relaxed environment prior to interview. The practical team assessment consists of games and activities that are completed in small teams. It usually lasts 1-2 hours depending on group size. (There is no role play – we promise!) It is important to be available for the assessment otherwise teamwork and cooperation skills cannot be demonstrated.
Interviews: There is a panel interview (20 – 30 minutes). You will receive a copy of the interview questions 15 minutes before the interview so you have some time to prepare. Please bring along any relevant certificates to the interview. A computer assessment or driver observation may form part of the interview process.
Applicants are notified of the outcome via email.
Practical team assessment: Monday morning 14th April
Interviews: 14th -17th April

Over recent years we have expanded the number and style of services on offer. It is our belief that each person is an individual and that the model of service delivery should match the persons own requirements and abilities. We continually look for innovative, effective ways in which we can support people with disabilities to lead active lives.
