54 Reasons - Save the Children

Take the lead in 54 Reasons' Back on Track program, an NT government initiative which aims to prevent youth crime, divert young people away from the youth justice system and provide alternatives to detention. We need you to lead a dedicated team to maximise the impact of our programs on the lives of young people, so we're seeking someone with a passion for assisting our communities' most vulnerable youth.

54 reasons is Australia's leading child rights organisation - no ordinary not-for-profit.

Proudly part of the Save the Children Australia Group and global movement, we're here to make sure that everyone understands their rights. So that children and young people have their rights met and thrive, in all their diversity.

We champion the children, young people and families we work with. We are inspired by the curiosity and creativity of children and motivated by the love of those who care for them.

With the child's voice at the centre, we provide quality services to children and their caregivers, advocating with them so that children develop, learn, and are connected, safe and confident. Our people are proudly local, reflective of the communities we serve - in every state and territory, and across regions, remote areas and capital cities.

Where you come in

In this full-time, fixed term position (until January 14th 2025, with potential for extension), based in Katherine, you will lead a team to deliver an exciting program focused on supporting young people to rethink their life choices and support them to become valued community members.

  • Providing regular leadership to the program team through coaching and professional supervision
  • Managing relevant budgets and collecting data
  • Contributing to the strategic direction of the NT Programs Team
  • Monitoring program contracts (under guidance) to ensure contractual obligations are met

Does this sound like you?

You work from a strength-based perspective and you're someone who highly values the wellbeing of their staff. You're a highly relational professional who genuinely enjoys being with people and has great respect for all cultures and backgrounds (particularly Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander backgrounds). You have strong financial literacy, program management, and organisational skills, and have experience leading successful teams.

This role requires:

  • Experience working with diverse and disadvantaged communities with a youth focus
