About the role
The role of Program Manager, Community Legal Centre Funding and development presents a unique opportunity to influence the allocation of funds administered to Community Legal Centres (CLC) on an individual and sector wide basis.
Working with VLAs finance team you will develop and monitor the $30 million CLC funding and development budget, lead a significant reform project to promote the provision of quality, coordinated legal assistance services, and ensure CLCs receive necessary support and advice regarding their obligations, operation and development.
In addition to this you will have the opportunity to work with colleagues in Sector Engagement and Service Design and contribute to the coordination of engagement with CLCs on issues of regional service delivery, system thinking to respond to unmet demand, and evidence-based service design and planning.
You are familiar with the strategic challenges faced by government-funded service programs including issues around governance, financial management, industrial relations, use of technology and meeting community need. With this understanding, and your excellent interpersonal and communication skills you will provide thoughtful, clear and well researched advice to a range of stakeholders and foster positive working relationships with CLCs across Victoria.
You demonstrate a clear continuous improvement focus in your work, and posses a strong knowledge and interest in process and systems improvements in particular.
Essential to your success in the role is your experience administering funding and/or working in an organisation that reports to funders, and your drive to take the skills and expertise you’ve developed in this area to lead a small team in delivering high quality outcomes, with a focus on continued improvement.
