Job Description

  • Newly created role shaped to achieve outcomes
  • Apply innovation for service model changes
  • Make a difference as you build your career
Do you want to make a difference through your work and leadership but haven’t been able to find “that job” where you can do that? Here is the opportunity you have been looking for.
Davidson Executive & Boards is currently recruiting a newly created role, the Head of Family Services for a community focused organisation and we are calling out to ambitious, energetic and authentic leaders that can bring innovative thinking to the Family Services portfolio.
With large scale service model changes impacting how services are delivered by the organisation, the Head of Family Services will lead the workforce, clients and the community through these changes. You will have the ability to bring new thinking and innovation to how services are delivered by the organization and you will be empowered to apply your strategic nous to operational delivery model development.
Leading in a dynamic environment, the role will see you finding ways to improve service delivery quality through a workforce keen to deliver high quality services. You will drive future thinking around services and how the organisation operates to deliver to the needs of the community. With an appetite for change, this organisation is poised to set the standard for the sector and you can be a major part of achieving this and building out your career opportunities for the longer term.
Drawing upon your strong operational management ability, your teams will feel well supported and engaged to push for high performance and to achieve exceptional outcomes for the community.
Given the community outcomes element of this porttolio, the Head of Family Services will have the opportunity for senior level stakeholder engagement and presentation of business operations performance, improvement projects progress and overall success of the portfolio.
To be successful in this role, a strong understanding of the regulatory and legislative of the operating frameworks will be critical as you look to introduce new approaches to service delivery without putting funding arrangements at risk.
If you are a community services professional looking for a leadership opportunity with real impact, the chance to bring new thinking and you also want to join an organisation that doesn’t want to just meet the standards but to set them, this is the role for you.
We will be pushing to meet with talent before the Christmas break so don’t delay in putting in an application in (only a Cover Letter and Resume is required to apply).
