The organisational structure is flat, the General Manager reports directly to the Board of Management, and all other staff report directly to the General Manager. As Manager of a stand alone facility it is necessary therefore to have a thorough understanding of the sector, the legislation that underpins it and the operational and strategic approach required to bring this together, and to take a very hands on approach with all facets of the service. I was a member of the then ACQI Council in 2007, have chaired the CALD Network group since 2004, and am a member of the Education Advisory Committee.
