The Smith Family is a national, independent children’s charity helping disadvantaged Australians to get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves. We are now seeking a Saver Plus Coordinator to join our growing team.

Reporting to the National Program Manager and working with a dedicated and passionate team, this pivotal role will be responsible for managing and facilitating one of our most valuable programs – Saver Plus. Your role will be varied, and very busy, but incredibly rewarding as you deliver, promote and create exposure to a financial literacy program that will have a long lasting impact on some of Australia’s low income families.

A day in the life of a Saver Plus Coordinator might look like this, but every day can be different

Primarily, you will be responsible for:

  • Promote and market the program to members of this network to assist with recruitment of potential participants and to ensure all are well informed about eligibility and the referral process
  • Develop and maintain an effective referral network of local schools, Community Groups, TAFE, Employers and Government and any other relevant networks
  • Develop positive relationships with the ANZ staff including District Manager & Branch Managers within LGA
  • Organise & facilitate MoneyMinded workshops to groups of eight (8) or more participants within 3 - 4 months of starting program
  • Monitor Saver Plus database monthly (once upload occurs around 7th day of each month) and run activity and goal export reports 

It takes a special kind of person to be one of our Programs Coordinators

Successful candidates will bring the following: 

  • Current State drivers licence including a Roadworthy vehicle
  • Experience in program delivery, coordination and facilitating group workshops
  • Skills and confidence to promote and market the Saver Plus program to schools, TAFE’s, Media and Community groups
  • Strong interpersonal skills and ability to build relationships with a diverse range of stakeholders
  • Excellent communication skills, written and verbal, including computer literacy and experience producing correspondence and reports

Living up to our employment promise, our team members tell us that working for The Smith Family they have great job flexibility and the ability to work alongside committed, passionate and professional team members whilst engaging in challenging, fulfilling and diverse work. In turn, our team members believe that they offer commitment to our vision, mission and values and effective collaboration with fellow team members to deliver strong performance outcomes.
