Case Manager - Supported Independent Living Service (SILS)

Permanent full time opportunity

Imagine reassuring a child that they are not alone.

About the role

In this role you will be supporting young people (16-18 years of age) in our Supported Independent Living program, building their capacity to live independently in the community.

As young people in care transition out of statutory care, they often need help with social, economic and wellbeing skills. You could provide support and advice on a wide range of issues, like getting financial or study help, maintaining bank accounts or even getting a drivers licence.

Everything you do will be contributing to their life skills and future well-being and prospects.

You will report direct to the Team Leader and also work closely with the Youth Workers. You will also be required to be on call on weekends on a rotating roster.

Who we are

We offer over 200 services in more than 100 communities, positively impacting around 45,000 lives each year. Our care services range from children, youth and family services, early intervention and protection, affordable housing, and seniors and support living, making us one of Australia's largest, most diverse not-for-profit organisations.

We provide a range of services to children, youth and families ranging from foster and kinship care to residential and supported independent living services. We provide support for more than 2,800 children, young people and families each year. Over 800 dedicated foster and kinship carers help us provide a vital safety net for these young people.

About you

You are passionate about the welfare of children and achieving the absolute best outcomes for them. You can easily relate to young people and earn their respect, as you help build their lives.

The Child Protection sector is highly regulated and you have a comprehensive knowledge of legislative and service requirements and can adhere to the compliance that is vital and necessary.

To be suitable for this position, your qualifications for the role will consist of:
  • A recognised qualification (Bachelor's degree or higher) in Social/Behavioural Sciences or related discipline;
  • Solid experience in leading a multidisciplinary team in a child protection context;
  • Applied knowledge and understanding of child protection and out-of-home care frameworks;
  • Demonstrated experience in the provision of care services to children and young people in statutory care;
  • Practical knowledge of financial management systems and budgeting.
Importantly, you will be someone who closely aligns with our organisational values of: Unconditional Love, Continual Innovation, Mutual Trust and Wise Stewardship.

Imagine working for us

Our values encourage us to be accepting of differences and embrace all. Our size and variety offers you real choice and opportunities to grow your career. You'll also find we offer a family friendly work culture.

Remuneration packages come complete with salary-packaging benefits that can increase your take-home pay along with a generous five weeks of annual leave and the ability to purchase more (for eligible employees). To ensure your career can grow, we are constantly exploring innovative training and development programs. Most importantly, you will help us to positively impact the lives of thousands of vulnerable Australians. Just imagine that.
