Child, Family and Kin Division Manager - Alice Springs

Tangentyere Council

Tangentyere Council’s Child, Family and Kin (CFK) Division aims to make a positive difference in the quality of life for the children, families and communities of the Alice Springs Town Camps and the wider Alice Springs community through the provision of a range of high quality, evidence-based services and programs that focus on increasing child, family and community wellbeing and safety, community empowerment and youth development and engagement.

Key areas of operation within the Division are:

  • Safe Families Residential Care
  • Intensive Family and Parenting Service
  • Kinship Care Program

This is a key leadership role requiring the exercise of a considerable degree of independence and is responsible for managing the Division and coordinating complex projects that impact on strategic priorities and operational outcomes of the organisation.

The Manager will be responsible for supporting and developing service delivery of all CFK Division programs to ensure achievement of strategic and operational results.

The CFK Division Manager will ensure that important strategic relationships with key decision makers from relevant government and non-government organisations are built and maintained, along with helping to ensure that major contracts are negotiated at a senior level with relevant external stakeholders.

For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, maintaining connection to family and culture is integral to their identity, as well as their social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. We recognise that wherever possible children are best placed in their family home, and we work extremely hard alongside families to keep them strong, safe and together.

Our work is holistic and integrated and draws upon the strengths of Aboriginal family and community structures and cultural systems. From early intervention to crisis support, we aim to empower families and their communities, and acknowledge the fundamental right of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their communities to control decision making processes around the care and protection of their children.

This position requires a satisfactory Police Check and Ochre Card. Please provide a copy with your application.
