You will also have:

  • Significant knowledge and understanding of contemporary theory, practice and its application in the area of disability and/or mental health (including excellent understanding of person-centred, strength-based support)
  • Understanding of individualised funding models and the key developments and issues facing the not-for-profit sector
  • Relevant tertiary qualifications or commensurate significant (i.e. 3 years+) experience and relevant professional development
  • Experience in the mental health sector is highly desirable.
