Team Leader - MacKids - MacDonnell

MacDonnell Regional Council

Looking for an exciting new challenge in 2020?

Why not try a Desert Change!!!

MacDonnell Regional Council has several opportunities for full-time qualified Early Childhood Educators to join our team in 2020 as Team Leaders.

As a Team Leader, you would be responsible for overseeing the day to day operations of a small Early Childhood Centre, working alongside a team of local educators to provide culturally relevant education and care programs for children from birth to school age.

You will need:

  • Degree/Diploma in Early Childhood Education or other qualification recognised by ACECQA
  • A sense of humour
  • Ability to be flexible
  • Open to new ways of thinking and working
  • Experience in working in cross cultural and bilingual environments

Living and working on a remote community within MacDonnell Regional Council:

Our centres are located on small remote communities varying from 100 - 650Kms (travel on mainly dirt roads) from Alice Springs. The experience of living and working in a remote Aboriginal community is both a privilege and a great learning opportunity as you immerse yourself in a world that most Australians will never experience, however it can be a demanding career and life choice. Usually our staff spend their spare time exploring the beautiful desert surroundings and take advantage of the adventure offered when living in a remote location. It is important to develop hobbies and to plan activities. Most importantly, the demands of the job should not be underplayed. You will have good days and bad, but each day is a new day with a new set of challenges.

What we offer:

  • 6 weeks annual leave
  • Generous personal and cultural leave
  • Superannuation co-contribution program
  • Fully furnished subsidised housing
  • Training and professional development opportunities
  • Salary packaging options

Attractive salary package commencing at $78,822 inclusive of superannuation and leave loading.
