Successful applicants will be supported to develop the skills, knowledge and competence required to function as an Assessor according to AS/NZS ISO 19011: – Guidelines for quality and/or environmental management systems auditing and meet the high standards of professionalism expected of HDAA Assessors.

While predominantly New South Wales-based, the role will involve some travel out-of-state and overnight stays.

This is an exciting career opportunity for the right person.  You will:

  • Be fully supported to develop a high level of skill and competence in relation to assessing safety and quality in human service organisations.
  • Once deemed competent, function as an assessor or member of assessment teams.
  • Travel (state-wide and occasionally interstate) on a regular basis to client organisations to provide on-site assessments.
  • Transition smoothly from on-site assessments to office-based desk top assessments and administration as peaks in workflow require.
  • Meet agreed targets of productivity, participate in the continual improvement of HDAA’s assessment processes, and maintain a high level of client satisfaction.
  • Represent and advance the excellent reputation of HDAA Australia Pty Ltd.

You must have the following attributes: 

  • A strong motivation to learn and an unwavering commitment to continuous professional development;
  • A belief in your ability to accomplish what you set out to do and to deal with the challenges of the role;
  • A belief that what you achieve will primarily be a result of your own behaviour and actions;
  • A belief in your inherent competency and ability to cope with the physical and intellectual demands of the role;
  • An optimistic and resilient disposition that can look beyond minor setbacks, difficulties, and other challenges.

You also need to have worked in the human services sector and be able to demonstrate empathy for people who access human services.

You must have a range of key skills and experience including:

  • Experience in the human services sector; e.g., disability, health, child and family welfare, housing, home and community services.
  • A willingness to complete training and achieve the qualifications HDAA deems necessary, within the timeframes we set.
  • Highly competent interpersonal skills.
  • Demonstrated written communication skills.
  • A demonstrated ability to work as part of a team.
  • The ability to adapt to new digital technology and ongoing change.
  • The ability to type with working fluency in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel.
  • The ability to travel state-wide in New South Wales (and interstate) on a regular basis (this includes overnight stays).
  • Current driver’s license.
  • Working with Children check or ability to be issued.
