Meet the Team

Hear about what it's like to work at Indigo from our experienced, professional people, in their own words:

Andrew, Team Lead, Indigo Driving Service

I really like assisting people with a physical, medical condition or disability to return to driving with vehicle modifications. I love being able to help people to continue to drive and maintain independence in their life, when they may have thought it was not possible. A diagnosis does not necessarily mean cessation of driving. Whilst maintaining a drivers’ licence is not possible for all, it brings me joy to see people to continue to drive and live an independent life when safe to do so.

What's not to like? Learning about all the new assistive technology is a real plus, but for me, It's also about working in an environment that is there to help. Indigo's Customer Service Officers support people with low level assistive technology requirements, working together with our health professionals, including occupational therapists, speech pathologists and physiotherapists.

Indigo has a lovely work culture, training opportunities and support. It has been exciting to see the organisation grow. I love the fact that we are supporting people over the age of 65 to remain in their own homes safe and independent and out of aged care facilities.
