At EACH, our vision is for a healthy and inclusive community.
In support of EACH and Uniting successfully winning the Monash Health tender for the EIPSR (Early Intervention Psychosocial Support Response) program, we are very pleased to announce several new career opportunities to support this new, exciting and innovative partnership.
The EIPSR program will lead a new way of supporting people with psychosocial issues specifically working to support our clients in their personal recovery journey, achieve set goals, increase independence, functionality and community connections.
We have several Peer Worker (Recovery) vacancies available for those staff looking to develop their career with EACH and provide a high level of service and support to the program.
If you're a Peer Worker, qualified with a Certificate IV in Disability, Mental Health or equivalent, and relevant lived experience in the area, enjoy variety in your day, and working closely with other service delivery professionals, you might be exactly the person we're looking for!
As part of our RESTART team based at Dandenong and Narre Warren, EACH is looking for a Peer Worker to provide, recovery-orientated, evidence-based peer support interventions to mental health clients.
You will work collaboratively with colleagues, clients, carers and other community partner organisations in order to deliver the best possible comprehensive service to clients. You will be integral members of the team and draw on the unique perspective and contribution of a lived experience of recovery from mental illness, to instill confidence and hope in others about the journey of recovery.
EACH offers all staff benefits by offering Not for Profit Salary Packaging, a family-friendly workplace strategy and support through a comprehensive Employee Assistance Program.
