The Brigidine Sisters were founded in Ireland in 1807 and arrived in Australia in 1883. Over time we lived and worked in each State establishing and administering schools and colleges and set up a foundation in New Zealand in 1899. Our ministries diversified and expanded into other fields of service. We now have a majority of retired sisters but are still engaged in outreach and have a strong justice orientation.
In September 2021, the sisters of Australia and New Zealand decided to form one Community to be known as the Brigidine Southern Cross Community (BSCC), which will come into being in July 2022. In keeping with our motto ‘With strength and gentleness’, we embrace this opportunity to strengthen our bonds and together share our lives and resources with those in need.
Reporting to the Brigidine Southern Cross Community Leader, you will use your extensive business, financial and administration experience to ensure the proper and professional stewardship of the resources of the Brigidine Southern Cross Community.
You will ensure effective and efficient business management systems and procedures are established and maintained, that all statutory reporting and compliance requirements are met, and that the financial needs of the Community members are addressed.
You will oversee and manage the Community’s properties, insurances, information technology, communications and motor vehicles, and work with third party service providers as required.
In undertaking your work, you will support and respect the ethos and values of the Brigidine Sisters and work collaboratively with the Leadership team, sisters and others.
The role is a permanent full-time role, however, for the right candidate consideration may be given to flexible working hours. Occasional travel to Sydney may be required as the role will work closely with the Business Manager in the Sydney office.
