Assistant Manager, Supported Living - Disability Support

Nexus Inc

About Nexus Inc

Nexus Inc is a Southern Tasmanian community-based organisation employing over 350 staff who provide support and development opportunities for over 200 people who require physical, social and psychological supports. Nexus is a registered NDIS provider. 

About the Nexus Supported Living Team

Nexus provides independent living support to around 50 people who live at accommodation sites around greater Hobart. Some of these sites are group homes that have been purpose built with specialised facilities for people who have decreased mobility, while other sites are just regular suburban houses or units.

Each site supports 1 to 5 people with a disability, whose needs range from being quite independent through to needing 24/7 complex support from staff.

Whether it be shared accommodation in a purpose-built group home or living alone in a one-bedroom unit, each site is “home” for the individuals who live there.

The Assistant Manager SL Role

Reporting to the Manager Supported Living, the Assistant Manager Supported Living will provide high level support to the SL Division of Nexus. 

The Assistant Manager Supported Living will also contribute to the continuous development of culture and positive work practices in a rapidly growing disability service.

The Assistant Manager Supported Living will bring to the role a level of specialist skills and knowledge that will help Nexus achieve results in line with the organisation’s strategic goals.

The Assistant Manager Supported Living will work within a range of current SL work practices but exercise initiative and judgment where practices and direction are not clearly defined or no longer best practice.
