DPV Health is a leading healthcare services provider operating out of Melbourne’s northern growth corridor. Our professional staff deliver a wide variety of clinical, community health and wellbeing services.
DPV Health is an Equal Opportunity and Child Safe employer who supports inclusiveness and diversity. We are dedicated to attracting and retaining people from a diverse background, including but not limited to, those identifying as LGBTIQ, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, people from cultural and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds, and people with a disability.
This exciting role will provide an opportunity to be part of the newly established Support and Safety Hub which has been created as a recommendation from The Royal Commission into Family Violence and Roadmap for Reform. The Hubs are designed to ensure that women and children are safe from harm and families can easily access the support and information they need. The ‘Hub Team’ will incorporate current Child FIRST services as well as an Enhanced Intake worker to respond to L17s [Police reports to incidents of Family Violence they have attended]. These roles will respond and plan interventions for perpetrators to hold them to account. The Hub will provide services for women, children, young people and older people experiencing family violence, and families in need of support with the care, wellbeing and development of children and young people.
This Team Leader will work collaboratively alongside others in the Hub and at Hume Moreland and be key to developing and facilitating integrated work practices.
The role requires an experienced forward thinking and innovative individual with a flexible approach to supporting staff as well as overseeing and contributing to the provision of a high quality and early intervention intake response service to perpetrators ensuring safety of children, young people and their families, especially those who have experienced Family Violence.
DPV Health is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to ensuring we have an inclusive, diverse and safe workplace for our staff and clients. To us diversity means people of any age, family situation, cultural and linguistic background, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical sex characteristics, ability or disability, health, life experience, socio-economic situation, faith, spirituality and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander background. We encourage all individuals to apply.
