Team Leader Specialised Family Violence Services
Full time position based in Darwin (till 28 February 2023)
You joined this industry to make a difference.
Now here's your chance to take one step further.
You are compassionate, empathetic and practical. A great communicator. You're also thorough, a meticulous planner, and have an innate ability to solve problems without feeling overwhelmed. You're no stranger to the health care or disability sectors, and right now, you're beginning to think that perhaps you owe it to yourself to take that natural instinct you have for mentoring and managing others, and develop it further. It's time to take the plunge into a leadership role.
If this is you, you're in luck. We have the perfect opportunity for you to do just that - with us.
We are CatholicCare NT, a not-for-profit organisation, providing social services and programs to individuals, couples, families, children, groups, schools and across communities in Northern Territory. The Specialist Family Violence Services (SFVS) team provides counselling, case management and crisis support to women and children who have experienced or at risk of experiencing domestic and/or family violence. We need you take responsibility of the implementation, leadership and integration of the program.
You will love this opportunity to step into a leadership role and provide vital support to our Regional Manager, as you:
- Work within a domestic violence practice framework, apply skills, knowledge and experience in crisis intervention, safety planning, group work, counselling, case management and community education
- Provide support and guidance to ensure staff deliver high quality, responsive case work and services, in line with contractual obligations, mandatory reporting legislation, and the needs of the community
- Develop and maintain collaborative networks and relationships with relevant government and community based agencies, and community representatives, to enhance service delivery, referral pathways and ongoing support for clients
To be truly successful in this role, you require a degree qualification in Psychology, Counselling or Social Work along with experience in the field; just as you'll find yourself referring to your acquired skills through your experience in team leadership. Additionally, your cultural competency, particularly in working with Indigenous people will see you thrive in this position.
We know, as you do, that this more than just a job. We will recognise your hard work with salary packaging opportunities in addition to your competitive salary, 17.5% annual leave loading, access to an employee assistance program, relocation assistance and more! You'll also be supported, every step of the way, by our passionate and motivated team.
And most of all, you'll know that you're helping members of your community with services that will greatly enhance their quality of life, when it has never been more valuable.
