CatholicCare NT is a not-for-profit organisation, providing social services and programs to individuals, couples, families, children, groups, schools and agencies across the Northern Territory. We provide a number of programs and services throughout the Northern Territory including Top End, Central Australia and remote regions. These programs and sites have a combined large vehicle fleet, site offices and other buildings linked to the various programs operating across the Tiwi Islands.
Comprising Bathurst and Melville Islands, with a population of around 2500, the Tiwi Islands are only 80km north of Darwin. The islands are home to the Tiwi people, who have a strong affiliation with their land and a distinctive culture and language. There are school and medical facilities on the islands and regular plane, passenger ferry and barge services operating from Darwin.
The Tiwi Islands are known as 'the islands of smiles'. The Tiwi people are internationally renowned for their individual style of art including carvings and bright textile designs. Prized by collectors, many Tiwi artists have exhibited around the world.
The Fleet and Maintenance Officer has responsibility for maintaining the vehicle fleet in good working order, ensuring all vehicles are registered and roadworthy, supporting WHS requirements and undertaking general maintenance of the site and outdoor areas at all CatholicCare facilities across the Tiwi Islands. The position will have responsibility for building maintenance, repairs and other works required to ensure CCNT and CCNT Resources operated buildings in Wurrimiyanga, Milikapiti and Pirlangimpi communities are functional and safe.
