With around 300 staff and a turnover of $20m, disAbility Living Inc is a vital, values-based, person-centred organisation providing choices for living, a holistic approach to support and expanding horizons for over 460 clients across 12 sites. Established in 1984 to provide long term community accommodation and lifestyle support for young adults with disabilities, continued expansion of services sees the organisation today providing wide ranging housing options, in-home support, community based social inclusion programs for children and adults, and developmental education services through an innovative, state-of-the-art, client-driven Therapy Centre.
Reporting to the newly appointed CEO and as a key member of the Executive Team, the General Manager People & Culture will lead and manage disAbility Living’s organisational development strategy. Development of a high performance culture through delivery of a contemporary human resource function for a growing and rapidly evolving human services organisation is central to this exciting opportunity to engage at both the strategic and operational levels.
Responsible for all aspects of the people and culture portfolio, ably supported by a team of specialists, this role supports the CEO, the Board and all areas of the multi-faceted operations. The appointee will be instrumental in promoting and modelling a positive and collaborative workplace culture, creating and implementing an effective internal communications strategy and supporting managers in areas including culture transformation, workforce planning and development, rostering, staff engagement, volunteer management and the provision of expert HR legislation and industrial relations advice.
Applications are encouraged from proven human resources professionals with relevant experience leading, managing and inspiring a broad people and culture function in a complex entity. HR experience in the disability or community services sector will be well regarded but is not essential. Demonstrated experience at the strategic and functional levels in a transformational change environment, a clear focus on both internal customer and client services, along with consulting, stakeholder and diplomacy skills will be required to succeed in this role.
A competitive senior remuneration package will be offered to secure a consummate and dynamic professional capable of making a real difference to the community and the next chapter of this successful and worthy SA organisation.
