We have the opportunity for an amazing Team Leader to lead our Restart and Reconnect programs in Gippsland! The position is based from our new hub in Morwell.
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 ReStart program aims to address the diverse and complex needs of short sentence (i.e. three months or less, including those on Community Corrections Imprisonment Orders) and unsentenced prisoners by providing pre-release support and assertive outreach support, which promotes sustainable links and reintegration within the community.
Success as a Team Leader requires you to have strong leadership qualities and a sound understanding of the challenges faced by people exiting custody. Reporting to the Program Manager, you will be responsible for managing the day-to-day service delivery of ReStart and Reconnect, supervising a medium sized team to ensure quality client outcomes. This is either a full-time or part time position based from our Morwell Hub.
