Tennant Creek Women’s Refuge is a key service provider in the Barkly region, and is currently under the administration of Territory Families (Northern Territory Government). Recent achievements include stabilising the organisation and improving its financial stability; and securing grant funding to implement violence prevention strategies.
In the Tennant Creek and Barkly region, domestic and family violence services are in the midst of transformative change, supported by the Barkly Regional Deal and informed by recent reviews of the service system for DFV in the region.
This role is a great opportunity for an experienced senior manager to develop the capabilities of Tennant Creek Women's Refuge whilst participating in and contributing to significant, well supported sectoral change.
Key aspects of the role will include strategic management of the service to maintain and develop its capabilities; ensuring sound financial management and ongoing viability of the service; establishing collaborative relationships to build organisational capacity; and management, practice support and supervision for a cross-cultural local workforce of around 10.
Alongside this, the successful candidate will work closely with the Regional DFSV Coordinator, Territory Families, the wider DFV sector and other local community agencies and stakeholders to implement collaborative arrangements and other initiatives that will strengthen service delivery to meet the needs of women and their children experiencing all forms of violence in the Barkly Region.
We are seeking a seasoned senior community services executive with significant experience in the DFV sector. This varied role requires well-developed strategic and operational capability, practical hands-on management skills, and a collaborative approach to establishing partnerships and other arrangements that contribute to organisational and sector change.
You will be skilled in working with a cross-cultural team of local staff to build their abilities and their confidence, while facilitating practice and administrative improvements. You will take a consultative, culturally appropriate approach to bring real value to this role; and great communication skills at all levels will enable your success.
Sound knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal culture, and the dynamics of family and domestic violence for Aboriginal women and their children is critical; and ideally, you will have experience living and working in a remote community.
An appealing salary package is on offer that includes private use of a vehicle and phone, 6 weeks annual leave, rental and relocation assistance and salary sacrifice opportunities.
