SCHADS Level 5 + 9.5% Superannuation + Salary Packaging

The Motivation for Change is an in-language, in-culture tailored intervention program aims to support men who use violence from migrant and refugee backgrounds. This program is a bespoke, dedicated trauma-informed and culturally accessible response to holistically engage men who otherwise may come to the attention of police, courts and other service providers. The program supports men who, for a number of reasons, are unable to access services to assist them in stopping their use of violence.

Motivation for Change Case Workers support male clients by providing trauma-informed practice to provide participants with opportunities to focus on and emphasise physical, psychological and emotional safety for all concerned. Case workers also work closely with group facilitators and partner contact workers to monitor and respond to safety concerns.

The Motivation for Change Case Worker position will undertake assessment, monitoring, planning, case management, advocacy and linking of program participants with support services. The Case Worker is required to work closely with staff from other agencies to ensure the clients’ needs can be addressed in an integrated manner.

This role requires case workers from culturally diverse, including South Asian and African backgrounds, with a mature attitude, ability to take control and work autonomously within a team environment. Sound planning and organisational skills are essential, along with the ability to work on multiple tasks with competing demands, prioritise and make decisions. A confident, ethical and professional approach is required for the position.

If you have the capability to achieve success in this role, have a genuine commitment to social justice, high ethical standards and values. We would love to hear from you!
