Program Coordinator

Little Dreamers Australia Co Ltd
  • (Parental Leave Cover)


Little Dreamers is Australia’s leading Young Carer organisation, working with young people who provide unpaid care for a family member with a disability, illness, or addiction across a range of direct support programs.

Over the past 12 years, we’ve become a game-changing force in the Young Carer space, developing internationally recognised best practice programs and changing the lives of over 5,000 Young Carers around the country.

Our staff across Victoria, New South Wales, and Queensland are working towards our vision of creating a world in which every single Young Carer is supported by someone or something by 2030.

Whatever the support service, a common thread runs through everything we do - young people should have access to the childhood that everyone deserves. Every Little Dreamers program works towards supporting Young Carers outside of their caring role, ensuring that these young people have the same access to opportunities that their non-caring peers have.


Little Dreamers expanded its operations to NSW in early 2019, and we are currently looking for a Program Coordinator to join our team on a parental leave cover (10-month contract).

This role will identify program opportunities and lead key programs including Big Dreamers Personal Development Program, Young Carer Retreats, and Mentoring. Working from the ground up, alongside the NSW State Manager, this role includes developing processes and systems to efficiently run the programs, coordinating budgets, and working with the volunteers, families, and Young Carers involved.

Reporting through to the State Manager (NSW), this role requires creativity, initiative, and an out-of-the-box attitude to solving complex problems. You will have the autonomy to affect change within the organisation with room to grow within the role.

The perfect person for this role will have...

  • Minimum 2 years experience working with young people and delivering programs;
  • Experience delivering engaging and interactive workshops for young people;
  • Excellent organisational skills and attention to detail;
  • Ability to manage competing priorities and work to a deadline;
  • Demonstrated ability to work independently and as part of a team;
  • Ability to coordinate administration, logistics, and other projects in a fast-paced environment;
  • Excellent written and verbal organisation and communication skills;
  • Demonstrated ability to connect with and empower young people;
  • Capacity to respond and resolve complex issues and problems quickly and with limited resources;
  • Passion and commitment to addressing Young Carer issues and advocating for young people; and
  • Ability to read and understand financial information and adhere to a budget.
