Youth Team Leader

People of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent are strongly encouraged to apply.

At its core NPY Women’s Council is about family and community – walytja. Our purpose is to work with women, children and their families of the Ngaanyatjarra, Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara region in central Australia. Our role is to work side by side and help increase their capacity to lead safe and healthy lives with improved life choices.

The NPYWC Youth Program works with children and young people (aged 10-25) and their families and is integral to the work that we do. Our model is based on four key components; case management, leadership and education, youth diversion and recreation and advocacy and collaboration.

We are now recruiting for a Team Leader to work alongside the Youth Team Manager to provide support and guidance to a dedicated team of professionals working in Northern Territory communities. This role will be an integral part of the management team and will supervise staff whilst providing day to day delivery of the Youth program. The position available is a 12 month, fixed-term contract

We are looking for someone with experience in supervision but can also balance the day to day delivery of program work and projects. This position will provide a range of support to staff and management and ideally, you will have worked with Aboriginal people and have Central Australian working experience.

The successful person will be resilient, driven and focused. We’re looking for someone who is assertive but also has the compassion to work with our staff and clients on sensitive issues.

There are many benefits of working for NPY Women’s Council. We are led and governed by women from the NPY region and follow strong values and high principles that guide our work.

You will work within a supportive, trauma informed framework and have the opportunity to learn community development and intercultural liaison from highly skilled, experienced professionals.

We provide a comprehensive culturally aware 3-month orientation program, best practice clinical supervision, professional development that includes vicarious trauma and case management training along with critical incident de-briefing and a range of counselling services to support you.

In addition to this we offer a generous remuneration package. You will receive an above award salary, additional superannuation, salary packaging benefits, 6 weeks of annual leave, 3 weeks of personal leave (to care for you and your family) and a retention bonus. We also provide use of a company vehicle when travelling remotely along with travel allowance.
