At Anglicare Victoria our focus is on transforming the futures of children and young people, families and adults. Our work is based on three guiding pillars, Prevent, Protect, Empower. We offer a comprehensive network of services and seek to ensure the provision of high quality services that will bring about significant improvements in the life experience of the young people, children and families/caregivers with whom we work.
The Adolescent Case Management Support Service (ACMS) is an outreach case management program providing a specialist support service to young people (12-17 years) on Child Protection orders with the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing Victoria. The young people we work with predominantly reside at home or in alternative community placements. Our clients are considered to be at risk of future harm, given their histories of abuse, trauma and neglect.
Targeted Care Packages (TCP) are creative and innovative placements developed around specific children/young people aged 10 -18 years as a wrap around service incorporating all aspects of support and brokerage in order for young people to successfully transition out of residential care to any alternative form of placement that will better meet the young persons’ needs.
In this rewarding role you will lead a small team of Case Managers delivering these specialist services. You will ensure an active and collaborative care team approach is taken to bring together cross sector organisations and programs and focuses on a common agenda that enables positive change to occur for some of the most vulnerable young people and families in our community.
TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN THIS POSITION YOU WILL NEED:
- Relevant tertiary qualification in Social Work, Psychology, Early Childhood Specialist and/or related behavioural sciences at degree level with relevant experience; or associate diploma level with substantial experience in the relevant service stream, or less formal qualifications with specialised skills sufficient to perform at this level.
- Demonstrated success in leading an effective team.
- Ability and experience in case management and supervision of young people who are at risk with special needs.
- Ability to use a range of strategies in working with clients around individual and family issues such as abuse, family breakdown and family relationships.
- Knowledge of adolescent and children’s development processes for working with individuals and groups.
- Intervention skills in responding to the developmental needs of young people who engage in high-risk behaviours and/or from conflictual families.
- Ability to contribute to the development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of client case plans.
- Knowledge of relevant policies and legislative frameworks regarding the protective and correctional responsibilities for children and young people.
- Excellent written and oral communication, negotiation and liaison skills and the ability to work with government and non-government organisations, community groups and clients’ families/networks.
- Ability to work both independently and as a member of a team, and to contribute to program development, implementation and evaluation.
