  • Provide financial, technical and professional advice
  • Develop your knowledge and philosophy of standards, QA principles, policies and WH&S

Skills Required

You are a seasoned business development professional with an ability to work collaboratively with leadership and senior management experience. Your creativity and business acumen will support your ability to identify and grow quality and reciprocal partnerships.
A knowledge of service delivery within health, disability, mental health or related industries and experienced understanding of the NDIS would be advantageous, including a lived experience but not essential.  Offering a well-developed network within the industry, you’re able to identify, research and recommend programs, services and client groups. You have an adaptable style that enables you to feel comfortable working in complex human environments.  Degree qualifications within behavioural sciences or a health-related discipline is required.
