Children's Services Regional Manager

Enhance Family Day Care

Wanting to lead people who care as much about making a difference as you do?

About us

Research states that the first five years of a child's life are the most important for their ongoing development. Our organisation has spent almost half a century ensuring families have a flexible, home-based choice of early education and care option for their children.

Enhance Family Day Care is a value based not for profit organisation operating across Queensland.

We know that without dedicated and committed team members our ability to make a difference in the lives of children, families and community would not be possible.

About the role

The Manager is the lead communicator, manager, and champion of our services in the region. You will oversee our operations with coordination of employees and educators across four locations in South Queensland.

You will be responsible for:

  • Working pro-actively to market and promote Family Day Care as a rewarding career for early childhood educators. You will develop innovative recruitment strategies that align to our organisational values and will be responsible for coaching your team on these skills and strategies to recruit both educators and families.
  • Meeting KPI’s on educator recruitment and retention.
  • Developing strategic and program-level approaches to assist in achieving the purpose, values and operational objectives of our organisation.
  • Providing strategic advice and input to the further development of our services on a state-wide level ensuring consistency of service standards and operations.
  • Developing the culture and capability of our team to ensure we have the skills to take our services into the future.

The role requires some travel to our locations in Ipswich, Warwick, Kingaroy and Bundaberg and other limited travel as required.

About you

You have a passionate and personal commitment to influencing the outcomes for children, families and community. Whilst you have a background in early childhood education and care you are able to use your business skills and experience to grow the business. You also have the ability to think and act innovatively about how we ensure quality outcomes and services in a regulated and complex environment. You manage budgets effectively finding ways to make the dollar stretch and meet your financial targets. You can demonstrate how you have done this in your previous roles.

You are excited about the opportunity to work alongside, celebrate and inspire dedicated team members in being the best they can be. You are a problem solver and solutions focussed and able to work effectively across teams in a matrix style organisation to achieve change and improvements in productivity. You can clearly articulate your leadership style and how you lead change and mentor your team.

Holding the organisations belief and values strong you can assist others to achieve our purpose. You make this happen by being a strong listener, enabling others to act, are resilient and act in congruency with your personal and professional values.
