Across Southern Queensland, Save the Children operates independent accommodation units located within secure facilities, and outreach support to women and children escaping domestic and family violence. In these environments women and children receive the support and information they need to make informed choices about their future, free from the immediate threat of violence. We need you to lead a team of dedicated professionals, driving their practice and managing operations.

Save the Children is no ordinary not-for-profit.

We’re ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children’s rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We’ve been working with families and communities in Queensland as a trusted support for children for nearly 70 years. More information on our work in Queensland is available here.

Save the Children works within a human and child rights and a child participatory approach. Our parent and child support workers operate within a practice framework that is child and women centred and trauma informed, and children are treated as individuals in their own right.

Where you come in:

In this full-time, maximum term position (until June 2023), you’ll be based in one of our South Brisbane refuges. While your primary responsibility will be to lead the staff and operations of that refuge, 20% of the role will be dedicated to the continuous development of the knowledge and expertise of the domestic and family violence workers across our Southern Queensland DFV programs. You’ll need to participate on an 8 week rotating on-call roster and be flexible to travel to other refuge locations on occasion. As part of our Australian Services team, you’ll report to a Regional Manager for South East Queensland.

You will make an impact by:

  • Overseeing daily operations in the refuge and ensuring practice standards are met
  • Leading and developing a dedicated and driven team
  • Providing coaching and technical support to staff in other programs, within and outside of Brisbane
  • Building relationships with the local community and confidence in the program
  • Assisting with development and implementing practice and fidelity frameworks to ensure continuous quality improvements across the SCA DFV programs

Does this sound like you?

You’re a passionate and confident leader who motivates and builds the capacity of others, and you have strong knowledge of domestic and family violence and how it affects families and communities. These skills will see you continuously develop staff knowledge and practice across our DFV programs, ensuring strength based, trauma informed practice.

This role requires:

  • Experience working with women, children and young people who have experienced domestic and family violence
  • Knowledge of best practice, professional standards, and relevant research in the field of domestic and family violence
  • Experience in coaching, mentoring and the transfer of skills and knowledge to others
  • Demonstrated understanding of the ways in which cultural contexts influence practice approaches
  • Current valid driver’s licence
  • Flexibility to travel on occasion
  • A Bachelor of Social Work, Psychology or relevant Human Service Qualification and/or significant experience managing a similar service

Working at Save the Children is more than just a job.

It’s the feeling of knowing that your work is contributing to making the world a better place for children and working with others who feel the same. In addition to a connection to social causes, you will have access to:

  • Individual learning plans and career development opportunities
  • Short term deployment opportunities as part of national natural disaster responses
  • Secondment opportunities to other SCA programs to boost your professional development
  • The peer support of a skilled and dedicated leadership group
  • Friendly and flexible work environment and a culture based on staff health and wellbeing
  • Professional supervision training and monthly supervision sessions
  • Full salary packaging benefits
  • Festive leave in addition to regular leave benefits
