  • At least 5 years of effective management/leadership experience of community based services, including program specialist experience;
  • A master’s degree in a human service field preferred; a bachelor’s degree and applicable experience can be considered.
  • Ideally, direct service or lived experiences as a family member, colleague or friend of someone who identifies as having a disability;
  • Successful experience working in a highly regulated task environment, with a distributed workforce;
  • A clear understanding of person centered thinking and planning skills, as evidenced by examples of having supported people with significant support needs in control of their services and living lives of their choosing
