Seeking an early childhood change maker!
Are you a change maker? A social innovator? We’re seeking someone who is excited by the idea of doing things differently and working collaboratively with a broad range of stakeholders to increase children’s attendance and enrollment in early learning, to improve local preschool quality, and to build networks between services and families in Mt Druitt. We’re seeking an Early Childhood Coordinator with a difference.
This is an opportunity to create lasting social impact by working as part of The Hive team to increase quality and participation in early learning across the 2770 Mt Druitt postcode, with a focus on supporting children and families living in community and public housing.
It’s not your average role. We’re not delivering traditional programs and services and you need not be an early childhood specialist or come from an education or services background. But you might. We’re seeking someone who is innovative, adaptive and community led. If you think you will be able to co-create initiatives with community and partners, and connect diverse organisations and individuals to drive change – we want to hear from you.
A typical day might involve working directly with families to understand what early learning means for them, and providing links into appropriate services; community engagement and building a movement for change; facilitating a common agenda and collaborative mindset among stakeholders; forming partnerships to deliver shared value; developing shared measurement; and administrative functions such as reporting.
What is The Hive?
The Hive is a network of people working to bring the Mount Druitt community, services, businesses, government, and philanthropy together to ensure local children start school well. The Hive Team coordinates the work, including facilitation of suburb and postcode level working groups. Our Vision is of a thriving generation of children in Mt Druitt. Our 2021 Goal is that all children start school well. Please find out more about our work and view the Position Description.
