Alive Catholic Early Learning is committed to creating positive early learning experiences for children aged from 6 months to 5 years. It currently has three centres, one based in the northern suburbs, one in the south-western suburbs and one in the Adelaide Hills. Two further centres are in the planning stages and a progressive rollout of further sites is envisaged over the next five years and beyond. This growing organisation provides a caring and supportive environment for children and is characterised by educational excellence, quality staff and a close partnership with families.
Based from a central office on the fringe of the Adelaide CBD, this position will be a challenging but rewarding opportunity to contribute to the future growth and direction of an exciting portfolio of Early Learning Centres (ELCs). Key responsibilities include:
- leading and developing a portfolio of ELCs, ensuring consistent and high quality service delivery to children and their families;
- assisting in the identification, assessment and implementation of new sites;
- achieving strict compliance at each site with respect to legislative obligations, industrial agreements, industry standards and assessments, codes of practice and applicable policies and procedures;
- managing and monitoring the operations, financial performance and human resources of the business.
Applications are encouraged from candidates with appropriate qualifications in early childhood education and previous experience managing a multi-site or large early years education facility. Resilience, diplomacy, initiative, warmth, good humour and exceptional interpersonal skills will all be essential requirements, as will strong commercial acumen to ensure sound decision making across the business. As this is a hands-on role, the ability to oscillate between operational and strategic demands will be important.
