What we do

Jewish Care Victoria, a not-for-profit organisation, is the largest provider of aged and community services for the Jewish Community in Victoria. Services include Aged Residential Care, Assessment Referral and Individual Support Services, Community Aged Care, Disability, Mental Health, Youth and Family Services and Holocaust Survivors Programs.


The role

We are seeking a Project Manager with experience in business and/or working with people living with a disability to join the Jewish Care Employment Centre. This is part of the Individual and Family Support Team, to manage a project funded by the Economic and Community Participation Program through the Commonwealth Department of Social Services.

The main goal of this role is to develop a plan and test a model to engage with and prepare Small to Medium Business Employers (SMEs) for recruiting people with a disability.  It will focus on making pathways simpler to encourage people with disabilities to apply for jobs and network easier.

This project is about challenging myths, reducing bias and unconscious bias, providing information about various disabilities and providing examples of successful integration. We hope to develop some solutions to encourage SMEs to employ people with a disability through a number of communication and discovery sessions using one on one discussions, stakeholder workshops, forums and focus groups. 

Even while the economy recovers from COVID-19 there are distinct opportunities for SMEs as well as people with a disability.  It is the function of this role to explain and reveal these to the various stakeholders.


To be successful in this role you will have:

  • Experience in managing projects in the social welfare sector.
  • Experience in engagement of committees and a wide range of stakeholders including people with disabilities and their advocates, small to medium businesses and their representatives, and people from the employment support industry.
  • Great interpersonal and communication skills both verbally and written.
