Diversity Safe Place Project 

Ethnic Community Services Co-operative (ECSC, NSW) and its partners, Diversitat (Geelong, VIC) and Townsville Multicultural Support Group (TMSG, QLD) are proud and excited to be piloting in the three States, the 12 month Diversity Safe Place Project (DSPP) which commenced in June 2017. The Grant is being provided as part of the Community Inclusion Capacity Development (CICD) Program of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Seeking an experienced PROJECT MANAGER

We are currently seeking a Project Manager responsible to lead this exciting new project. The Project Manager will provide leadership and management of the project for a period of 12 months, including the supervision of three Project Coordinators that are located in Sydney (Inner West), Geelong City and Townsville City. The Project Manager will be based in Sydney but will be required to occasionally travel to Geelong and Townsville.

The purpose of the Project is to:

Build the capacity of community services in the three geographical areas so that they are more welcoming and inclusive of individuals with disability from a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Community (both those that are newly arrived or have already settled in their community). People with a disability will identify both their positive and negative experiences when accessing services, this will assist in the co-design of resources to be trialled at each of the localities.  The outcomes and learnings from the project should contribute towards the scalability and sustainability of the project beyond the 12 months and build the foundations to transition the project to a national scale.

You will like working in this Project if you….

  • are passionate about enhancing the opportunities for people with disability, their families and communities the opportunity to find their Own ‘Voice’ and participate fully in Australian society
  • believe that we can build a more inclusive society that celebrates diversity and enables all its members to lead fulfilling lives
  • understand the principles and approaches that guide individual and community change and choice and control for people with disability
  • recognise the importance of planning, monitoring, evaluating, reporting and meeting time frames so that the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will be assured of the value of their investment in the Project and the benefits achieved.
  • understand and are active in promoting positive relationships that are built on trust and respect
  • operate with the greatest integrity demonstrating compassion, honesty and sensitivity in all your actions and behaviours,
  • are wanting and willing to be creative and to listen and value the ideas of others.

As we are looking for the best person to Project Manage this project, we are happy to negotiate hourly rates and hours per week within a $100k upper limit budget for this position over a 12 month period.
