Doing more good things… welcoming Jeremy Levine
Cube Group is delighted to announce the addition of Jeremy Levine to our team, where he will be helping our clients in the community service and voluntary sector to make an even greater difference to the lives of Australians.
Community and voluntary organisations are at the frontline, providing services that contribute directly to improved public value outcomes for vulnerable and disadvantaged members of our community.
The sector is complex and rapidly changing, with increasing administrative requirements, a decreasing and changing volunteer base and an ever-growing demand from clients. Time and resource limitations can make responding to these challenges very difficult for most non-government organisations. To achieve more with less, many organisations are re-thinking their operating models, reviewing service delivery approaches and collaborating with other like-minded organisations. Cube Group is excited to help with these capability and capacity building initiatives, and assist the sector to maintain the public value outcomes it is renowned for.
Jeremy brings to Cube terrific skills and experience with the community service sector and a strategic, innovative perspective on ways forward. He has recently led and delivered high priority reform projects in community and human services which have fueled his passion for real, client-centred public value outcomes. Jeremy’s keen interest in innovative models of collaboration, partnership, project management, stakeholder and community engagement will help us to work on the problems and opportunities that matter most to our clients.
Getting to know Jeremy
We had a quick Q&A session with Jeremy to find out what makes him tick…
Why did you join Cube Group?
I wanted to make a bigger difference. The move to Cube Group allows me to offer my skills and experience to a broader range of organisations that deliver public value, to support them to make a difference in the community. As an added bonus I get to work with a great group of people who share my values and passion for creating public good.
What are you most proud of in your career to date?
Being part of system-wide projects like Services Connect and Service Sector Reform were unique opportunities to work on ambitious reforms intended to improve outcomes for vulnerable people. I’m also proud of reforms to the Residential Tenancies Act 1997 (Vic) that sought to improve the standards in rooming house accommodation, and to improve the safety of tenants living on public housing estates.
Who has inspired you?
I’m always inspired by the people who work on the frontline of service delivery because of their dedication to making a positive impact on the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged people in the community, often in challenging situations. At the same time, the leaders of community services organisations do amazing work in supporting and advocating for disadvantaged members of the community, while also seeking to innovate and identify opportunities for their organisations to be even more effective.
What is on your agenda for 2015?
Working to introduce Cube and its abilities to public value organisations in the community, volunteering and not for profit sectors.
So that’s a lot of work-related things, do you have any passions outside work?
I’m a keen road cyclist who isn’t afraid to don lycra when getting on the bike. In fact, I recently cycled up Mount Buffalo in Victoria – it took a really long time!
The team at Cube is looking forward to an exciting year full of challenges and new ideas, helping our newest public value clients in the community and voluntary sector.
