We protect around 90 per cent of public and private sector workers in NSW – that's approximately 3.2 million people. icare is a trusted risk advisor to the NSW Government, protecting over $266.6 billion of the state's most iconic assets, including the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The opportunity:

Negotiate solutions with Scheme participants, their families, service providers and icare staff to resolve complaints and prevent escalation of issues. Develop collaborative relationships with icare staff as well as external stakeholders, for example dispute assessors, to ensure participant disputes are resolved promptly and within the legislative framework. Contribute to continuous scheme improvement and ensure participants’ needs are met through the provision of person-centred injury management and service delivery advice, training, internal quality assurance, research and service development projects.

It’s an exciting time at icare where no two days are the same; as a Customer Resolution Advisor you will:

  • Investigate and resolve complaints from participants, service providers, stakeholders and the general public in relation to the Lifetime Care and Support Scheme, CTP Care and Workers Care programs and Dust Diseases Care.
  • Manage the process for resolving disputes about eligibility to the Lifetime Care and Support scheme and about Lifetime Care participant treatment and care needs in accordance with legislation and guidelines. This includes assessing each dispute for early resolution and escalating disputes to external assessors as required.
  • Develop and maintain influential and collaborative working relationships with internal staff and external stakeholders, to negotiate solutions, resolve issues informally and prevent formal disputes.
  • Assess and review the needs of Lifetime Scheme participants, applying a person centred approach whilst balancing what is reasonable and necessary in accordance with Guidelines and Legislation.
  • Participate in recruiting, training and monitoring Lifetime Care dispute assessors to ensure that dispute assessments meet participant needs and the needs of the Scheme. This includes providing them information about the applicable legislation, guidelines and procedures.
  • Participate in developing policies, procedures and guidelines relating to disputes and complaints in Lifetime Schemes, ensuring that the processes are accessible to those with an acquired severe injury.

 

Your story so far:

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.

  • Ability to make day-to-day decisions on disputes and complaints.
