About the company:
Marist180 (www.marist180.org.au) is a not-for-profit organisation committed to empowering people with skills, knowledge, practical support and encouragement. We strive to care for all who need support and hope, from people without a home to those seeking asylum.

About the role:
This is a brilliant opportunity to lead and grow a passionate, dedicated team to deliver great employment outcomes for disadvantaged people in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
Overseeing the Employment and Training section of Marist180 (formerly Marist Youth Care), you will find ways to innovate and bring in revenue streams to support our aims.

You'll be a great communicator, an inspiring leader and be able to identify and develop partnership opportunities with other delivery organisations, employers and more.
You will have a great understanding of the factors influencing underemployment in different social groups - particularly young people, Aboriginal people, and newly arrived migrants. You'll be able to guide a team to deliver hard targets without compromising quality or holistic service delivery.
Skilled at time management and juggling varied and competing demands, you'll have a real chance to create new and innovative projects and the ability to implement and deliver them.
- Experience of delivering on outcomes based employment services
- Ability to design programs that meet the needs of people experiencing problems engaging with the labour market
- Ability to build fruitful and ongoing partnerships internally and externally
- Values that match the commitment of Marist180 to empowering people to create positive change
- Experience of the Australian social enterprise sector

In return you will have a job with genuine scope to make a social impact, a great salary complete with NfP salary packaging options, and will join a team that is innovative, passionate and supportive.
