Work with a leader in multicultural services for refugees and migrants.

The Company:

MiCare Ltd is a leading provider of services to refugees and migrants ranging from youth, family and community settlement services, education, home based services, retirement living and community and residential aged care. We are emphatic about our philosophy which is, all people need to be respected and diversity needs to be honoured.

The Opportunity:

MiCare is looking for an experienced Strategic Engagement Coordinator (SEC) with strong stakeholder engagement and strategic thinking skills as well as a comprehensive understanding and experience working with diverse multicultural communities.

About the role:

The Strategic Engagement Coordinator will strengthen settlement outcomes through a strengths-based community engagement approach that involves collaborative efforts and coordination to engage and support culturally diverse communities, including at-risk and new and emerging communities across Victoria.

The SECs will engage communities, including those who may have been in Australia over five years, and/or are ineligible for Commonwealth settlement support, but still require assistance to support their participation and settlement in Victoria.

The initiative funded by Multicultural Affairs and Social Cohesion (MASC), is a partnership between MiCare and Wyndham Community Education Centre (Wyndham CEC) and is part of a network of 11 SECs across Victoria. As part of this initiative MiCare, Wyndham CEC and MASC will work together to develop partnerships to strengthen community engagement, social inclusion, economic participation and settlement outcomes

Key tasks:

The SEC will develop partnerships with communities, community organisations, service providers, government departments and other stakeholders to strengthen community engagement, social inclusion, economic participation and settlement outcomes, through:

  • Ongoing dialogue and collaboration with local communities, funded agencies, service providers, other nongovernment organisations and the three levels of government.
  • Strengthened and better coordinated support of existing programs, by gaining a better understanding of the needs and concerns of each community, gaps in support and points of duplication.
  • Strong communication with Wyndham CEC and the Multicultural Affairs and Social Cohesion Division (MASC) of DPC to strengthen policy advice, service gaps and improve programmatic coordination.

This is a part-time position 0.8 EFT (4 days a week) funded until September 2020
