This role will sit within the Brotherhood's Youth division. The Youth division is not a service delivery arm in the conventional sense. Instead, we function as an ‘incubator' for the development of practice and service models that engage and sustain young people experiencing disadvantage in education, training and employment. We work with young people, community, business and all levels of government across Australia to develop, test, refine and consolidate effective and scalable models. This includes concerted effort to bring attention to the realities faced by young people experiencing disadvantage and to the urgent need for policy and practice reform. Our work is supported by the BSL's Research and Policy Centre, which works ‘hand in glove' with the Youth division on project development, implementation and evaluation.
The Brotherhood’s Youth division utilises an ‘Advantaged Thinking' approach across all our programs and has a key role in the development and delivery of training and resources to enable partner organisations to ensure young people's aspirations, skills, attributes and talents are recognised and harnessed. The division plays a lead role in training, program and service development across multiple programs funded by State and Federal governments and through philanthropic funding.
The Brotherhood of St Laurence has been funded by the Department of Jobs and Small Business to establish a National Youth Employment Body (NYEB) over two years, commencing in July 2018. The NYEB will capture and co-develop good practice place based solutions that address youth unemployment to scale nationally; use existing research and on ground learnings to inform future service design; and mobilise employer effort and expertise.
The NYEB will work alongside employers, the community sector, service providers, skills and training sectors, government, and young people – in up to four demonstration sites – to understand and document the enabling conditions needed to transition young people into sustainable work.
The Senior Project Officer role combines coordination across the areas of project management, service development, research and documentation to achieve the objectives of the National Youth Employment Body.
The Senior Project Officer will work closely with the Service Development Manager and Senior Manager, to coordinate a national effort, liaising with external government and community partners, local service providers, and other key external stakeholders. This role leads all aspects of project coordination for the National Youth Employment Body, and supports with service development activities.
The role will require interstate travel to all demonstration sites and across Victoria.
This is a full time position working 38 hours per week for a maximum term of 12 months.
Salary will be in the range of $68,797.82 - $74,844.21 per annum, based on skills and experience plus superannuation. Attractive salary packaging provisions are available to increase take home pay.
