Outstanding Career Opportunity | Exciting Time to Join
Our client, Hutt St Centre aims to end homelessness by advocating with, and empowering, people at risk of, or experiencing, homelessness; supporting them to rebuild their lives on their pathway to a suitable home. Each year, Hutt St Centre delivers wellbeing and homefulness services for in excess of 2,500 people. Critical to this is the Centre’s Wellbeing Centre which provides essential wellbeing services such as meals, showers, laundry facilities, access to health and allied health practitioners, legal counselling and education and employment support. The Wellbeing Centre team works closely with the Centre’s Homefulness Services teams who provide case management plus tenancy, social connection and community inclusion support.
The rare opportunity has arisen for a highly capable leader to join Hutt St Centre at an exciting time for the organisation. Reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer, the Wellbeing Centre Manager leads a diverse team of professionals focussed on delivering the essential wellbeing services that support clients from the moment they enter the Centre and on their journey to homefulness.
The Wellbeing Centre Manager is a busy, full-time (Monday to Friday) role managing a team of professionals and volunteers who are the Centre’s initial point of contact and engagement for clients at risk of or experiencing homelessness. The role includes oversight of the Centre’s Pathways team who support clients to achieve their education or employment goals, and Dining Facility which provides essential meals, food supplies and culinary preparation skills.
We seek applications from candidates with an outstanding work ethic and a demonstrated ability to lead a diverse workforce comprised of permanent full-time, part-time and casual employees, and volunteers, who collectively work to deliver the Centre’s wellbeing services, which is open Monday to Saturday.
You will be naturally empathic yet highly assertive, resilient, organised and communicative. Your ability to prioritise and juggle tasks in a reactive environment is paramount. You must be comfortable in a role which combines client facing and back-of-house responsibilities, people leadership and resource management, and providing strategic contributions to the organisation. This is an exceptionally exciting time to join the organisation with a complete refurbishment of the Wellbeing Centre and upgrades to systems and processes underway and due for completion in February 2021.
