We're currently seeking an intelligent and determined Manager of Community Services to assist us in achieving our goals.

About the role:

This is a pivotal opportunity where you will be challenged daily, but you will also be able to see the fruits of your labour as you support and advance the Maningrida community.

The core component of this role will be running the Community Development Program Contract. On top of your daily responsibilities, the role will also involve:

  • Ensuring that we meet our performance targets across Employment Services Contracts efficiently, well and in accordance to contractual obligations
  • Establishing relationships with employers, gathering information about the local labour market
  • Building, nurturing and leading a high-performing team through community engagement and networking with employers
  • Identifying any areas for revenue growth and implement strategies to take advantage of these
  • Liaising with service providers, the community and beyond to forge beneficial relationships

About you:

You've got 7+ years' experience in a similar role, with a demonstrated understanding of the Jobseeker Compliance Framework. You will have a solid understanding of the business aspects of Employment services, and you can tell us about your adaptability, ability to spearhead crucial change and love of collaboration. Extensive case management, team leadership and community engagement expertise with exposure to money management is essential to be successful in this role. If you've worked with indigenous or remote communities before, all the better - we'd love to hear about it.

In exchange, a competitive salary awaits, along with the full support of a high-performing and dedicate and diverse team. But more crucially, in joining us, you'll have the opportunity to continue your incredible journey of inspiring growth in a unique and unforgettable environment.
