Manager of Finance and Administration


Kanyirninpa Jukurrpa (KJ)


Newman (or open to fly-in fly-out), Western Australia

  • Bring your high-level management accounting expertise to help drive significant social change and make a real difference.

Kanyirninpa Jukurrpa (KJ) has an exciting opportunity available for a Manager of Finance and Administration. This newly created position will be responsible for day-to-day oversight of the organisation’s financial management, financial reporting to program managers, senior management and the board, as well as supervision of the administration and logistics support staff.

About KJ

KJ is focused on three complementary objectives:

  • to support Martu to look after culture and country;
  • to build a viable economy in Martu communities; and
  • to build pathways for young Martu to a healthy future.

To do so, KJ delivers a suite of social, cultural, environmental and economic programs. KJ has a strong reputation for engaging and supporting the Indigenous Martu people in successfully delivering these programs and is the biggest employer of Martu in the region.

Main competencies for the role

The successful applicant will be a skilled and resilient individual, with initiative and experience in the financial management of a diverse organisation. This involves having oversight of a complex and changeable operating environment, influenced by multiple funding streams from an array of funding partners.

It is essential that you are passionate, committed and resourceful. Working closely with Martu requires you to be adaptive and consultative, and it demands the ability to listen to, understand and respect Martu views and attitudes. Creativity is important when communicating complex financial information to the board, program managers and Martu employees.

Experience with a not-for-profit organisation is desirable but not essential.  What is more important is the willingness to adapt to, and comply with, the organisation’s external financial reporting needs and to ensure that all levels of the organisation are provided with relevant, reliable financial information. 


The position is based in Newman, WA but KJ is open to the option of a highly skilled fly-in-fly-out candidate.
