ACSO is looking for a Forensic AOD Clinician to undertake specialist forensic alcohol and other drug assessments and counselling focusing on assisting clients in contact with the justice system with their journey of recovery.
The Australian Community Support Organisation (ACSO) is a dynamic, values-driven NFP, focused on partnering with government and the community to co-design services that create real social change. We’re an organisation with a bold vision to create a safe and inclusive community freed of crime and prisons. It’s our goal to reduce re-offending and our mission is to help people transition from prison, assist them in the community, stop them from re-offending, and intervene to divert others from committing crime.
Forensic AOD work involves conducting specialist forensic alcohol and other drug assessment, professional report writing, and formulating treatment plans. It also includes liaison and consultation with the courts and treatment providers as well as engaging clients in alcohol and drug counselling. There is a full-time position available in the Forensic Assessment and Counselling Team (FACT), with the opportunity to work from ACSO’s Richmond and Sunshine offices, and various court locations. As part of a wider team with diverse and specialised skills and experience, you will have practical and expert advice available to support your learning and continued professional development.
We’re looking for someone who will bring a passion for helping clients to the role, along with a strong belief in humanity and the right to a second chance. The successful candidate will be ethical, self-motivated and committed to helping others achieve their goal.
To apply please visit our careers website and provide a copy of your resume, along with a brief covering letter outlining your responses to the selection criteria (outlined in the PD available on our website). Applications close COB 01 June 2020.
