We have the opportunity for Forensic Case Workers to join us in our After Hours Response Team being delivered in Preston. We’d love to hear from people who are motivated by working with a team of skilled and knowledgeable staff, innovative in finding solutions, and passionate about the right to a second chance.
The Australian Community Support Organisation (ACSO) is a dynamic, values driven NFP, focused on partnering with government and the community to co-design services that create real social change. We’re an organisation with a bold vision to create a safe and inclusive community freed of crime and prisons. It’s our goal to reduce re-offending, and our mission is to help people transition from prison, assist them in the community, stop them from re-offending, and intervene to divert others from committing crime.
The role of the Forensic Case Worker (After-hours Response) is to work in collaboration with Corrections Victoria to provide an effective, flexible and responsive after-hours and recall response to participants on post-sentence orders, as part of the CSP. The Forensic Case Worker (After-hours Response) may also be called upon to provide after hours and/or weekend support to CSP participants where individualised needs arise.
The Forensic Case Worker (After-hours Response) will be responsible for working an after-hours roster (i.e. 5pm to 11pm) and will engage directly with post-sentence participants, who have after hour or weekend support needs. As part of this role, you may be recalled after-hours to provide support to participants who require relocation or supervision within the community.
