Job Description

Hohepa Canterbury is a community leader providing services and support for people with an intellectual disability inspired by the anthroposophical principles of Rudolf Steiner. We help people living with an intellectual disability to develop to their fullest potential and to live enriched and meaningful lives in a holistic and supportive environment.

This newly created leadership role will see you lead a high performing team of Support Managers (9 direct reports), driving best practice support, operational performance and a culture of continuous improvement of people, processes, and outcomes.

The direct reports lead Support Coordinator teams who are supporting people with an intellectual disability, mental health, behaviour and/or sensory challenges.

You will be results driven and able to identify change needed and lead that change for the optimal outcomes.

Proven leadership experience in the disability, not-for-profit or health sectors would be an advantage. You will have experience or exposure in supporting vulnerable people and their families.

Energy, resilience, well-developed interpersonal skills and the capacity to bring creative ideas to the table will guarantee your success.
