Thrive365 are seeking two Accommodation Managers within our 24 hour Supported Independent Living services in Werrington, NSW.

Who we are

Thrive365 is a disability service provider supporting people with a disability on their path to thrive.

At Thrive365, we’re all about choice and partnership. We believe people should be able to choose how their NDIS funding is spent. We believe people should be able to choose the staff who support them and this means everyone from your support coordinator to your therapist or gardener. We believe in championing the right of people with a disability to live, work, socialise and participate in the community, free of discrimination and unnecessary boundaries.

We believe that the best support comes from working in partnership. And we believe people should have control over their life so they can truly thrive. Our job is to support people to make and action those choices so they achieve their goals.

Making it happen - your Role.

We have an opportunity for two Accommodation Manager to join us on a full time basis, leading a team, across one service each and supporting over 8 individuals.

The accommodation is new purpose built Specialist Disability Accommodation that consists of a double story property with 2 x 2 bedroom fully accessible apartments and 4 one bedroom improved liveability apartments. Each property has a common area and staff office, along with gardens. We are all about working to co-design the support delivery with participants and their family that enables maximum choice and control for the people we support. One service will require an Accommodation Manager with experience delivering complex health needs. It is an active night service. The second property offers a sleep over service.

This is a fantastic opportunity to further develop Thrive365’s reputation as an outstanding provider in the area. To try new things and be more flexible in how we deliver a new era of support. Leading good practice and developing excellence in service, you will provide management support whilst supporting people to build community relationships.

You will maintain and enhance our high standards and build strong working relationships with our customers, regulators and other important stakeholders. This will include taking direct management responsibility for referrals, health and safety, compliance issues and financial control. You will also play an important strategic role in defining, developing and implementing our growth plans.

To be a great Accommodation Manager, you will need to possess a relevant qualification within disability (Cert IV or higher) and demonstrated experience in a similar role overseeing/coordinating disability accommodation services and managing a team of staff in a residential setting, including supervision and mentoring. Your experience working with residents with complex needs and behaviours of concern, ability to engage, build and maintain solid stakeholder relationships coupled with your sound negotiation and dispute resolution skills will guarantee your success in this role. Experience writing and coordinating incident reports is required and a current  drivers’ license, mandatory.

You must have a positive attitude towards issues of intellectual disability and mental health and a comprehensive understanding of these issues in practice. With the ability to act as lead practitioner and develop the team’s skills via supervision and on the job coaching, you will have the aptitude to respond to the needs of a 24 hour service to include on call arrangements and a need to provide management cover when required and therefore a flexible approach is essential.
