The Salvation Army is looking for a CIO who can lead its Aged Care Plus (ACP) and Humanitarian Mission Services (HMS) information management and technology team.

The full time role will be offered on a 12 month contract and is located at Meadowbank, Sydney. The Salvation Army didn’t disclose the salary range for the role but said there will be “generous salary packaging options available”.

Reporting to the deputy CEO – corporate services, the CIO will be responsible for maintaining, improving and innovating the IT platform and use of information for the organisation’s programs.

The ACP program cares for more than 1400 residents across New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory and Queensland.

The HMS program, which was set up in agreement with the federal government, provides humanitarian support services for asylum seekers who will be housed and processed on Nauru and Manus Island.

The requirements for the role include at least 10 years working in IT, with significant experience in IT management, combining mixed internal and external resources to deliver on services and projects and develop an internal IT organisation.

The role also requires someone who has a technical understanding of all major areas of IT, including application development, support and maintenance, server and client infrastructure, IT project management and networking, the Salvation Army said.
