As Baptcare continues to make a positive difference to the lives of vulnerable people across Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia, the organisation seeks to appoint a General Manager Community Services. This is a key leadership role, with responsibility across a range of service offerings including child, youth and family services, disability services and mental health services. With new leadership in the organisation there is a genuine opportunity to leverage partnerships and knowledge to support the growth and development across the streams.
Reporting to a contemporary and supportive COO, the General Manager Community Services will lead the operations and continuous improvement of the portfolio across the three states. They will build on evidence informed practice and grow the footprint and profile of the organisation, while advocating for the continual improvement of consumer-centred high-quality services.
