Residential Service at AV
AV is one of the state’s largest providers of Out of Home Care Services and provides care of hundreds of Young People in Residential Care every year.
Our Wallan site is a new site opening specifically to support 2 young people in the house. To support the Young People in the house there will be a roster of 8 staff each working a fixed pattern of shifts over a fortnightly period. Each position is a permanent ongoing role offering anywhere between 50 to 76 hours per fortnight.
There are shifts that involve day time work as well as specific positions for those interested in working active night duty only. Workers are guaranteed stability and structure to hours and rostered work as well as the opportunity to take up to 5 weeks of paid leave every year and also the opportunity to pick up additional shifts as well.
Working in our Residential Services program is a perfect spring board for future positions with Anglicare making it a great place to either start your career in the industry, or join an organisation that presents its staff with excellent ongoing career opportunities.
Residential Youth workers at AV work in large teams to support young people in care. This is a tremendously varied role which can involve everything you might expect when looking after young people, from creating a stable, nurturing and above all, safe home environment, to supporting young people who, as a result of significant past trauma, may have challenges with expressing emotion and dealing with the challenges of day to day life.
All of this work takes place as part of large team, supported by colleagues, team leaders, an extensive support structure at AV and with all of the tools, skills and additional training that might be required.
We currently have four positions available at Wallan and Seymour.
