Little Dreamers is working to improve the quality of life for Young Carers and Special Siblings across the country.
Our vision? To ensure that every single Young Carer around the world is supported by someone or something by 2030.
We are Australia’s leading Young Carer organisation, supporting young people between 4 – 25 years across six support programs. Over the past 10 years, Little Dreamers has become a game changing force in the Young Carer space, developing internationally recognised best practice programs, advocating for legislation change and changing the lives of thousands of Young Carers around Australia.
Whatever the support service, a common thread runs through everything we do - that young people should have access to the childhood that everyone deserves. Every Little Dreamers program works towards supporting Young Carers outside of their caring role, ensuring that these young people, have the same access to opportunities that their non-caring peers have.
With rapid growth, Little Dreamers is looking to expand our Dream Team and for our newest addition we are specifically looking for a State Manager to launch and manage the new Brisbane HQ office.
Managing the Little Dreamers program portfolio and the execution of the Carer Gateway Service Provider requirements, the State Manager (QLD) is responsible for managing the roll out of the organisation to the three Carer Gateway regions in QLD. This role will be working closely with the State Managers across VIC and NSW, along with other members of the head office team including People and Culture, Marketing and Events and National Development Manager.
This role aims to focus on leading the organisation and ensuring quality of service while meeting impact and budget targets. Reporting through to the CEO, this role requires creativity, initiative and an ‘out-of- the-box’ attitude to bring awareness and understanding to complex challenges. You will have autonomy to affect change within the organisation, developing strategies from the ground up.
This role is instrumental in setting up and managing a team of Supervisors and Program Coordinators to deliver programs across the three Carer Gateway regions in Queensland. This role will require some travel both within QLD and occasionally interstate.
