Current Positions


The Colman Education Foundation is seeking an amazing person to join the Our Place team, as a Community Facilitator at Westall. 

At Our Place, we believe that supporting local schools to be the hub of a whole community is one of the best ways to enable long lasting change in communities experiencing disadvantage. We enable this by working in partnership with local services, government and the local community to increase collaboration and to support all children and their families to succeed in life.

Our site in Westall was established in 2022 with the vision of a welcome and safe place for children family and community to learn belong and thrive together to achieve great life outcomes.

About this role

Community Facilitators are at the core of the Our Place approach, working on-site with the local community, partners and stakeholders to find ways of better connecting services to community need. The role also supports important internal work of site governance, capturing evidence of changes on the site and building and implementing the Our Place approach.

Being a Community Facilitator is a varied and unique role. You’ll show day-to-day leadership by influencing and collaborating with others from different organisations and cultural contexts. Navigating these diverse relationships is at the heart of this work – you will need flexibility and grit, an ability to manage ambiguity, and a desire to learn.

In return, you will have the opportunity to demonstrate different ways of working in communities, to have the security of working on long-term time horizons, purchasing an additional 4-6 weeks of annual leave and to be part of a state-wide group of equally passionate, curious and committed colleagues. 

If you had been in this role for the past two weeks, you would have:

  • Spent time at the school drop-off greeting and meeting parents and having informal discussions about their family’s needs and supporting them to access services and community activities
  • Participated in the Our Place team meetings and the Community Facilitators’ Community of Practice and another additional professional development session
  • Worked with the Partnership Manager to plan a site tour of the early learning centre for primary school staff to build understanding and continuity of learning for children
  • Completed the internal site data report to capture the number of parents and families utilising on site programs and services
