Economic Participation Unit Manager - Central Land Council - Alice Springs

Pipeline Talent
  • Full Time | 3 Year Fixed Term | Not for Profit | Alice Springs
  • This position is open to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people only

About the organisation

We are a council of 90 Aboriginal women and men elected by our communities in Central Australia to represent them, fight for their rights, help them reclaim and manage their land and realise the opportunities that come with the recognition of property rights.

All sections across the Central Land Council (CLC) are now engaged in post-determination activities focused on assisting Aboriginal people to use their land for social, cultural and economic benefits. There are significant opportunities for Aboriginal leadership in the Central Australian economy. The Economic Participation Unit (EPU) is focused on four strategic initiatives, summarised as Engage, Identify, Support and Share.

About the role

Responding to the Chief Executive Officer, the Economic Participation Unit Manager (EPU Manager) will be responsible for leading the unit to support economic participation by Aboriginal peoples of the CLC region in an ALRA 'post determination' era. The function of the EPU Manager includes understanding, advocating, and sharing Aboriginal peoples’ aspirations for economic participation, setting an agenda for sustainable economic development, and leading a unit of specialists. In consultations with constituents and stakeholders, the manager will identify gaps in the types of economic participation support available in Central Australia and recommend/align existing support with constituents’ needs and aspirations.

About you

As EPU Manager, you will engage with Constituents about their aspirations, identify and broker new opportunities, support pathways into business, and share evidence and collate with others.

You will supervise, plan and coordinate the performance of EPU staff and resources in accordance with organisational objectives, including recruitment, staff management and performance, learning and development and WHS. You will also develop and implement comprehensive economic participation methodologies, strategic frameworks, and project plans to engage and support traditional Aboriginal owners and communities.

You will be proficient using Microsoft Office, have a high level of oral and written skills and be able to produce minutes, reports, briefings, and newsletters. Knowledge and understanding of the overall context of CLC is desirable.
