The Smith Family is a national, independent children’s charity helping disadvantaged Australians to get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves. Reporting to the Team Leader Learning for Life and working with a dedicated and passionate team, this pivotal role will manage and deliver one of our most valuable programs – Learning for Life.

The role involves planning and implementing The Smith Family suite of Learning for Life programs within the Pilbara Community.

You will also be responsible for reporting and tracking the progress of the programs, including resources and budgets, contributing to The Smith’s Family vision.

  • Continually monitor program delivery and ensure the database has accurate and up to date information
  • Advocating for and answering enquiries relating to The Smith Family educational programs
  • Meeting with fellow team members to discuss potential improvements that can be made to the program
  • Working with community leaders to identify partnership opportunities

It takes a special kind of person to be one of our Program Coordinators. Our successful candidate will bring the following:

  • A genuine care about supporting the educational outcomes of young people.
  • Demonstrated experience maintaining strong partnerships and relationship development.
  • Relevant experience dealing with a large number of program-related enquiries.
  • Excellent time-management skills and the ability to maintain accurate data.
  • Hold a current drivers licence.

Living up to our employment promise, our team members tell us that working for The Smith Family they have great job flexibility and the ability to work alongside committed, passionate and professional team members whilst engaging in challenging, fulfilling and diverse work. In turn, our team members believe that they offer commitment to our vision, mission and values and effective collaboration with fellow team members to delivery strong performance outcomes.
