Kinsight has been supporting people with disabilities for over sixty five years! That’s a long time. We’ve learned a lot over those years, and right now our learning is telling us that it’s time to make some changes. Not change for the sake of it. Not change because we’re bored. Not change because we’ve failed. Change because we think we can do better, be better in our work. We are on the verge of an important transformation, one that will re-shape how we serve adults. Our transformation will be enriched by the wisdom of those we serve, their families, staff, the Kinsight leadership team and guided by a refreshed role in our organization, the Coordinator of Adult Services. That’s who we’re looking for now!
We’re looking for someone who can focus perfectly on two targets at the same time. First we want someone who can lead us back to the drawing board where we can collectively develop a new map – one that will better help us to help those we serve live good lives. Second we want someone who can work the current reality – who can do all the typical managerial type things, and do them very well. So really, we’re looking for someone who can lead us into the future and make sense of our present – all at the same time. And all the other things too like ‘team player’, ‘able to work independently’, ‘strong communicator’, ‘shows initiative’, ‘reflective practioner’, ‘effective coach/mentor’.
In a nut shell…we have a couple of service areas that we’d like to refresh, but you’ll need to be prepared to ‘fly the plane while building the new one’. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it. If you are someone who knows a lot about community living and service provision – that’s good. If you are someone who knows a lot about community living and service provision but are eager to push the boundaries of ‘best practice’ – that’s even better.
To coordinate the development and delivery of services that meet the personal needs and expectations of the persons receiving service and their families while at the same time demonstrating compliance with all relevant internal and external standards articulated through, for example, funding agreements, collective agreements, licensing conditions, CARF, and the Employment Standards Act.
