About us

The Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Protection Peak (QATSICPP) is the peak body representing, advocating, and supporting the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child protection and family support sector in Queensland.

By sharing our collective knowledge and experience, we can all make a positive impact on policies and practices to combat the overrepresentation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in Queensland’s child protection system.

About the role

The Senior Change Lead role will lead the design, development and implementation of rigorous processes that will enable QATSICPP to effectively support the major reform of the child protection system that is occurring in Queensland. This will include supporting the implementation of the government’s commitment to transferring all services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families from non-Indigenous organisations to First Nations Community Controlled organisations by 2032.

The Senior Change Lead will work to identify the elements of success required to achieve the reform, establish clear and meaningful performance measures, track performance and design actions to support the organisation in meeting their identified success indicators. The role will contribute significantly to QATSICPP’s approach to ensuring the organisation is best placed to achieve the aspirations, activities and outcomes outlined in the Strategic Plan.

Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander applicants are strongly encouraged to apply.

  • Actively engage and build strong and trusting relationships internally and externally with a broad range of stakeholders including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations to ensure that the objectives of success are on track and culturally strong.
  • Support the implementation of organisational goals by working collaboratively with other members of the team.
