Opportunity for a dynamic leader in Health with sound leadership and coaching skills to help establish our new Women's Health & Wellbeing Service in Townsville.
The Women’s Health and Wellbeing Support Service provides trauma informed counselling and case management support to meet the ongoing needs of women and young women who require assistance to achieve better health and wellbeing. The service undertakes intake and needs assessment (including ongoing safety and risk assessment) and case planning for meeting the individual’s support needs. The service is prioritised to women who are recovering from experiences of domestic and family violence and other forms of gender-based violence.
Women are assisted to achieve social and economic independence by supporting them to access a range of support services to meet their long terms needs and to support their ongoing journey from crisis to recovery.
As the Service Manager, your experience managing a growing team in a rapidly changing environment will be pivotal to your overall success. You will be someone who is able to approach tasks in a calm and logical manner. You will be able to make hard decisions when required but your management style will be more about building your team members capacity, coaching and supporting them to develop their skills and become leaders of the future.
