Save the Children is no ordinary not-for-profit

We're ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children's rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We've been working with families and communities in Queensland as a trusted support for children for nearly 70 years. More information on our work in Queensland is available here.

Where you come in:

In this full time, permanent position, you'll facilitate the Local Level Alliance across Mount Isa and the Gulf. You will make an impact by:

  • Driving specific place-based initiatives to enhance the support available for children and families in and across their community
  • Working the service system to integrate various practice frameworks in the provision of child centred family focused support
  • Facilitating service system level development and re-design processes by analysing the impacts of services provision and gaps

Does this sound like you?

We're looking for someone who is organised, proactive and influential, with exceptional skills in communication, facilitation and motivating a diverse range of stakeholders to work together to ensure families receive the right services at the right time. You're known for your ability to manage conflict, find the common ground and keep relationships strong whilst inspiring change. You're action driven and outcome focused, possess a high level of integrity and personal accountability, and you're happiest when you are working in a role that supports groups to achieve their goals.

This role requires:

  • Proven leadership skills, the ability to nurture stakeholder relationships and maintain action and outcomes focused initiatives

  • Relocation assistance potentially available, if not based in Mount Isa
  • Award rate salary (slightly above SCHADS Level 5.1) plus full salary packaging benefits
  • Festive leave in addition to regular annual leave
