Children's Services Manager - Townsville


Aruma needs YOU (yes, you!)

At Aruma, we support people with disabilities to live great lives. It's the reason we exist - after all, why should anyone have to settle for anything less? And to make this a reality, we rely on the skill and commitment of our Aruma team.

Our Aruma team is an incredible bunch of people. They're bold, brave and courageous. They see possibilities where others may not. They stand up for the things that matter and stand together as a team. And while they're serious about human rights, they have a knack for finding joy in life - even in the most unexpected places.

When you're part of the Aruma team, you're not just supporting people. You're pioneering new paths, challenging assumptions, daring to think differently, and telling society to raise its bar much higher.

We're after people who have values similar to ours, but there's no specific 'mould' you need to fit (after all, we need a team that's as diverse as our customers!).

About the position

  • Ensure person centred, quality outcomes for customers and their families
  • Minimise risks to customers and employees and ensure safe working environments
  • Meet budgets including labour targets and minimise vacancies
  • Lead and develop capable and dedicated teams, committed to excellent practice
  • Ensure services adhere to regulatory and legislative requirements
  • Ensure services run effectively, efficiently and sustainably

There are, however, a few boxes you'll need to tick:

Must haves…

  • A commitment to Aruma's Code of Conduct
  • A minimum five years working in disability services or a similar environment
  • A relevant tertiary qualification in Child, Youth and Family Intervention or related field
  • Comprehensive knowledge of human rights-based approaches and person centred principles and approaches, including positive behaviour support and active support
  • Ability to coach, mentor and develop teams
  • Well-developed written, verbal and listening skills
  • Capacity to implement change and identify opportunities for innovation
  • Solid financial management capability (P&L's, rosters, budgets, multiple cost centres)
  • Confidence and capability in using systems and technology
  • Strong administrative skills: time management, coordination of tasks, efficient work practices
  • Ability to plan and schedule own work independently, monitor progress against work plans and outcomes
  • A confirmation record of COVID-19 vaccination (doses 1 & 2).

So, who is Aruma?

We're glad you asked! Aruma is a new name in disability services, but we're definitely not the new kids on the block. You might remember us as House with No Steps and The Tipping Foundation, two great organisations, with over 100 years of combined experience, who came together in 2018.

Our success depends on YOU. We'd love to hear your story.

Aruma is a Child Safe Organisation
