Our Community Economic Development Managers (CEDM) work with Indigenous communities that want to establish economic activity on their land and sea. Our CED Manager will work with Indigenous communities providing governance, management and planning support through trusted relationships to strengthen the foundations of the representative community body to manage long-term enterprises and employment for their communities. This position will be based in Hobart or Launceston and reports to the Head of Community Economic Development, supporting and driving our Mission across Tasmania.
Some of the role’s key responsibilities include:
Inspired by Christian values, Many Rivers exists to help Indigenous and other Australians in disadvantaged circumstances to improve their situations through the provision of microenterprise and community economic development support.
Our clients are seeking to move from welfare dependency to self-reliance, to make a valuable contribution to their communities and to the broader economy. The communities we support want to pursue opportunities that move them towards their self-determination and a more secure future for their families. We create change and economic opportunities through our work.
We are looking for diligent self-starters who understand owner-operated business needs and growth, are commercially savvy, have a demonstrated ability to project-manage for outcomes with Indigenous governance structures and communities, are experienced in working with Indigenous communities, and are relational and energised by the opportunities to support communities to achieve tangible enterprise and employment outcomes. We are seeking someone who is fully aligned to Many Rivers’ Mission and Objectives.
The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate:
A competitive package is on offer and as a registered NFP Organisation, there is also the opportunity to access tax-free salary packaging. Face-face interaction is essential to delivering our contracted outcomes and hence, we offer a business vehicle and relevant tools of trade (mobile phone and laptop) to facilitate this. Home will be your new office!
Other benefits include:
We value our people in the same way we value our clients and communities. We are a remote workforce geographically dispersed across remote and regional Australia. Despite the distance our Organisation remains connected via technology and through inspirational Leadership, clear organisational strategy and direction, a supportive, caring and fun culture and a commitment to ongoing professional development for all our team members.
If you have an interest in social justice, working alongside individuals, families and communities that are working hard to build a better future and want the opportunity to live and work in regional or remote Australia, this opportunity could be for you!
We are committed to providing equal opportunities. Suitable applicants who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander are encouraged to apply.
Interviews will start immediately - so do not delay.
