Senior Quality and Compliance Officer (1FTE)

Morling College is a registered Higher Education Provider (HEP) with campuses in NSW and WA, offering biblically grounded, quality education and training. The team at Morling are a dynamic, creative and colourful group of people who seek to love God with all that we are. We invite you to experience the richness of this united, yet diverse community at Morling College.

To start as soon as available, the relatively new Senior Quality and Compliance Officer role forms an integral part of the Quality, Policy and Compliance team. This is an exciting opportunity for the right person to develop the role further in terms of compliance and quality assurance practices across the organisation.

In addition to being the key contact in terms of compliance, it is expected that the role will integrate Morling’s compliance obligations into the day-to-day activities of its staff, overseeing a compliance framework that impacts on the whole of the organisation. The role is also expected to implement an integrated quality assurance system, work with the Leadership Team and other heads of departments to affect cultural change, develop evidence-based approaches to education and business activities and further develop continuous improvement practices, such as innovation programs.

The role provides a lot of flexibility in terms of its specific tasks with a vision for it to evolve in the future to include greater oversight and team leadership.

Ideally, the role will be located either at the NSW or WA campus but for the right person, can be negotiated to be carried outside of these areas as long as the person is flexible, highly IT competent and able to travel when required.

This is a full-time role (1FTE) and is based on level 7-9 of the Education Services (Post-Secondary) Award. Morling offers a competitive salary above award rates with a salary of $70,504.17 - $83,952.83 pro-rata per annum, depending on qualifications and experience.
