We need you to lead our dedicated program team to maximise its impact on the lives of young people in the beautiful Kimberley town of Kununurra. In this varied and challenging role, you will manage and develop the intensive youth mentoring programs in the East Kimberley. You will foster lasting links with the community and encourage active engagement with the services we are proud to deliver.

Save the Children is no ordinary not-for-profit.

We're ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children's rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We run programs in Australia and overseas and, if there's a disaster - like an earthquake, drought or conflict - we are there on the ground.

Where you come in:

In this full-time permanent position, based in our Kununurra office, you will inspire a team of passionate and talented individuals to accomplish ambitious goals for our youth programs. Collaborating with local youth justice stakeholders, these programs support targeted young offenders aged 10-17 to reduce offending. You will be part of our Kununurra Youth Team and report to our Regional Coordinator.

You will make an impact by:

  • Leading and developing a dedicated and driven team
  • Supporting the design, implementation and monitoring of the program
  • Building relationships with the local community and confidence in the program
  • Providing practical support, mentoring and advocacy for young people and their families (as required) with complex needs
  • Organising successful back to country day trips and activities

If we could compose the perfect you…

… You would be a highly flexible individual who is calm under pressure and loves to have positive impact working with traumatised youth. You need plenty of energy and a can-do attitude to make long-lasting relationships with disengaged youth and their families. You have empathy and an infectious enthusiasm for your job.

This role requires:

  • Proven leadership skills and the ability to nurture a cohesive team
  • Ability to develop, implement, monitor and evaluate activities
  • Experience in case management and working with young people
  • Ability to manage competing priorities and complex scenarios
  • Current valid driver's licence
  • Relevant degree qualifications in youth work, social work, social science, education, psychology, or progress towards (highly desirable)

Working at Save the Children is more than just a job.

It's the feeling of knowing that your work is contributing to making the world a better place for children and working with others who feel the same.

In addition to a connection to social causes, you will have access to:

  • Individual learning plans to assist in your career development
  • Internal employment and development opportunities
  • Friendly and flexible work environment
  • Award rate salary plus full salary packaging benefits
  • Professional supervision training and monthly supervision sessions
  • One-week additional annual leave
