Case Manager – Intensive Family Support Program

Applications close January 14, 2019

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

Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Council was founded and is still led, governed and directed by women from the NPY region. It was created to give a voice to women across 26 desert communities in the cross-border regions of Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory.

Today, we continue to provide progressive, innovative and evidence-based work in service delivery, advocacy and support.

We are now recruiting for a number of Case Managers to join the IFSS team. You will be working with families and children (aged 0-12) across a range of key areas; parental supervision, education, health needs, physical needs and emotional and development needs. The positions are based in various communities across the APY Lands with travel to our head office in Alice Springs every six to eight weeks.

Intensive Family Support Service’s (IFSS) vision is for Anangu families to remain healthy and positive about their future by living in strong and independent communities that have increased socio-economic equality, children attend school and adults are meaningfully engaged.

You will have a background in Social Work, Early Childhood or Community Development and have experience in managing a caseload. Working with trauma-informed frameworks or the ability to adopt those practices would be desirable.

This is a unique chance to work for an organisation that takes a grassroots approach to community development. You will live, work and build lasting relationships within a local community and get to experience an amazing landscape and part of the world. This is an extraordinary opportunity to learn about yourself, another culture and grow professionally at the same time.

You will work within a supportive, trauma-informed framework and we provide a comprehensive culturally aware 3-month orientation program. You will receive best practice clinical supervision and professional development that includes vicarious trauma, case management and four-wheel drive training. We also provide 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, 32 days of annual leave, 15 days of personal leave (to care for you and your family) and a retention bonus. We also provide NPYWC accommodation and use of a company vehicle.
