To be successful in this role you must hold:

    • A relevant post-secondary qualification.
    • Working with Children Check – Blue Card.
    • Senior first aid including CPR, emergency asthma management and anaphylaxis training.

Hours, Conditions & Award:

Our preference is for this to be a Full-Time position (38 hours per week). However, the P&C is open to negotiating a flexible, mutually agreeable working arrangement should the ideal candidate need it.

As the P&C is seeking a highly skilled candidate, the remuneration will be at the Parents and Citizens Associations Award – State 2016 – level 7 Classification.
