About the Opportunity
GTNT Group currently has an opportunity for a Program Manager to join their team in Tennant Creek, NT on a full-time permanent basis.
Reporting to the Employment Services Manager, you will be responsible for managing the Juno Program in the Tennant Creek region.
The Juno Program ensures participants have the appropriate foundation skills, opportunities to work within structured work placements to lead to ongoing employment or apprenticeship pathway.
More specifically, your day to day duties will include (but not be limited to):
- Achieving program outcomes by providing tailored support services to participants and monitoring them to ensure successful outcomes;
- Actively promoting the program throughout the community, developing community connections and relationships with relevant organisations/people/officials that help lead to sustainable employment opportunities;
- Monitoring and evaluating program KPI's and monitoring of contractual requirements; and
- Complete all the administrative and reporting requirements for the program.

With effective communication, stakeholder and program management skills, you will be confident in building the program from the ground up, establishing contacts and liaising with a wide range of both internal and external stakeholders, including department CEOs and local Council officials, to achieve positive employment outcomes for the participants you recruit into this initiative.
It's crucial that you have a genuine interest in seeing people succeed, and are committed to supporting your participants as they grow their skills into successful careers.
