Boarding Coordinators (3 Positions Available)

Become part of a team creating a home environment in Melbourne for Indigenous people from remote and regional communities.

These three roles exist due to an expansion of our boarding facilities, promotion of existing staff and to replace key staff who, after 3 plus years, have decided to move on.

We are currently seeking:

Positions will also be available in our new Richmond Alumni House for Boys once it opens in Term 2, 2022.

• Senior Boarding Coordinator: with sound boarding experience looking to take on responsibility for student travel administration, medical supervision, planning of weekend activities. In this role the person will be responsible for the operations of the House when the Manager is off duty.

To be successful in these roles the person will have:

• previous experience in a residential or boarding school environment and a clear understanding of the duty of care for both male and female residential students and the relationships with their families;

• experience working with Indigenous students with respect and empathy for their cultures and demonstrated desire for reconciliation;

• an understanding of and experience living in a remote or regional community; and

• be available to work a 7-day (Mon to Sunday) rotating shift which includes evenings, nights, day and weekend shifts.

In addition to the general Boarding Coordinator duties above, the Senior Boarding Coordinator role will focus on:

• coordination of student activities: As the senior coordinator you will be responsible for overseeing mediations, extensive student travel at the start and end of each term, planning weekend and after school activities; and
