About the Role
The Brotherhood of St Laurence drives change that promotes a compassionate and fair society where everyone has a sense of belonging. The National Disability Insurance Scheme has engaged Early Childhood (ECEI) Partners around Australia to deliver the ECEI approach, with the Brotherhood of St Laurence being the NDIS Partner for the North East Melbourne area, Hume Moreland area and Bayside Peninsula area.
The ECEI approach supports children aged 0-6 years who have a developmental delay or disability and their families/carers. Supporting families to help children develop the skills they need to take part in daily activities and achieve the best possible outcomes throughout their life is a fundamental part of the ECEI approach.
You will lead a small team in delivering and implementing the NDIS ECEI approach within your contracted area. Ensuring that a high quality of service is provided to children and their families, you will build effective relationships with key stakeholders including children’s services providers, as well as work collaboratively with other teams within the Brotherhood of St Laurence.
A specialist in allied health or early childhood education, you have a true passion for delivering children’s services and are well regarded by your peers. You have experience in leading teams to achieve organisational outcomes, and your friendly and cooperative nature allows you to build effective relationships with stakeholders at all levels. Don’t miss out on this outstanding opportunity at the centre of some of the biggest changes in the disability sector in Australia’s history!
People with a lived experience of disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
About the Organisation
Established during the Great Depression, the Brotherhood of St Laurence was the vision and creation of Fr Gerard Tucker, a man who combined his Christian faith with a fierce determination to end social injustice. The Brotherhood has developed into an independent organisation with strong Anglican and community links. Today, we continue to fight for an Australia free of poverty.
At the Brotherhood of St Laurence, we are defined by the people that make up our organisation. With 600 employees and 900 volunteers across more than 50 sites, together we strive to help people experiencing disadvantage through research and policy and services and advocacy.
As well as providing services and programs for families and elderly on low incomes, refugees, young people and the unemployed, we research the causes and effects of poverty and advocate national and local policy solutions for people who are disadvantaged.
