Location: Craigieburn

Applications close: Tuesday, 20 November 2018 at 5pm

An exciting opportunity exists for a Saver Plus Coordinator to make a genuine difference to the financial well-being of low income Australian families.


Summary of program and its objectives

The Saver Plus Coordinator is vital in managing and facilitating one of our most valuable programs – Saver Plus. Your role will be varied, and very busy, but incredibly rewarding as you deliver, promote and create exposure to a financial literacy program that will have a long-lasting impact on some of Australia’s low income families.

A day in the life of a Saver Plus Coordinator might look like this, but really every day will be different: Promoting the Saver Plus program to referral networks including local schools, community groups and other relevant organisations; conducting interviews with potential Saver Plus participants to assess their eligibility and capacity to develop a savings goal along with developing a budget; database management; follow up with a participant to provide support; deliver the MoneyMinded financial skills training program to groups of participants; submit written reports; and respond to all the emails and phone messages (that never seem to stop!).

Main responsibilities of the role

Are you experienced in promoting programs and maintaining productive working relationships with schools, TAFE and local community networks? Are you able to work autonomously and strive to achieve Targets & KPIs? Do you have proven time management and organisational skills, including the ability to plan workload, priorities and meet deadlines? To be one of our Saver Plus Coordinators you need to have the ability to work with limited direction and as an effective team member to achieve outcomes and be fantastic with people. You radiate confidence and belief in the Saver Plus program. You need to be able to manage a number of different tasks all at once, without letting anything fall through the cracks. You need to have strong facilitation experience and be a nimble administrator as many aspects of this role are about making sure things are on track. Most of all you care, lots, about helping some of the most disadvantaged in our society.

To meet the selection criteria, candidate will require:

  • experience working in a similar role, promoting programs and maintaining productive working relationships with local community networks
  • demonstrated experience in facilitating or delivering training to diverse audiences (individuals and groups)
  • well-developed organisational and time management skills with the ability to plan workload, prioritise and meet deadlines
  • well-developed interpersonal and communication skills with the ability to build effective relationships and liaise across all levels both internally, externally and with people from diverse backgrounds
  • proven ability to work with limited direction and as an effective team member to achieve outcomes
  • understanding of the issues associated with social and financial exclusion in Australia and familiarity with programs which seek to address these
  • good attention to detail as well as proven experience in maintaining accurate records in a timely manner
  • current Victorian drivers license
  • understanding of and empathy with the values and ideals of the Brotherhood.

Desirable

  • demonstrated experience in or understanding of the Saver Plus Program.

This is a part time role, 12 month maximum term, working 30.4 hours per week (0.8 FTE). Salary will be in the range of $63,475 to $70,263 per annum (pro rata), based on skills and experience plus superannuation. Attractive salary packaging provisions are available to increase take home pay.
