Learning Links is a not-for-profit charity organisation with a 50-year history helping families and children with learning difficulties and disabilities.
Learning Links partners with HIPPY (which stands for Home Interaction Program for Parents and Youngsters) to provide free, home-based parenting and early childhood enrichment programs that help young children and parents to prepare for school. HIPPY is about encouraging and supporting families to learn together.
As an organisation that offers flexibility, we now have a fantastic opportunity for a job share 1-2 days a week as a Program Coordinator (what we call internally a HIPPY Coordinator). In this role, you will be coordinating the HIPPY Riverwood Program in a job-share with our current Coordinator.
We are keen to appoint an existing team member to the role in January 2024, with a fixed term contract until December 2024. The role will start as one day a week part-time (with some additional days in the first six months for training purposes paid as time in lieu). The role will then likely expand to two days a week from July.
The position is based at our Peakhurst and Oatley offices with the opportunity for agreed flexible work from home arrangements. In this role, you will work closely with community agencies and partners in the Riverwood area.
Pending a new sublicence agreement signed with HIPPY Australia, this role would then likely extend into 2025.
In this role, you have access to a great range of benefits, including:
