National Disability Insurance Scheme expected to create 1750 jobs in Tasmania

THE National Disability Insurance Scheme will create a jobs boom in Tasmania over the next three years with 1750 full-time positions created, a new report says.

An additional $260 million will also be injected into the Tasmanian economy by the NDIS, the National Disability Insurance Agency says in a report to be released today.

Federal Social Services Minister Christian Porter said the NDIS presented huge opportunities for Tasmania to develop a competitive and innovative market that would see more jobs and major financial investment.

“This world-leading scheme is going to be one of the biggest job creators in Tasmania over coming years with fantastic opportunities for business and job hunters,” Mr Porter said.
