Your New Career

Camp Australia now has an exciting opportunity for a full-time Regional Manager to join their team covering 14 services across Darwin and Palmerston, which also includes a service in Katherine that you will be required to visit as required.

This pastoral care element of your role is critical, and you will be accountable for coordinator satisfaction as well as retention. You will be backed by subject matter experts in compliance, quality and staff training to free up your schedule, allowing you to focus 100% of your energy on providing quality support to your Coordinators. Ongoing training will also be provided to ensure you can confidently assist your Coordinators in achieving their goals.

In addition, some of your key duties will include:

  • Taking responsibility for performance management and other relevant HR processes;
  • Overseeing all educational programming, ensuring it falls in line with legislation guidelines; and
  • Reporting back to the General Manager on performance and other relevant matters.
