We have the opportunity for a Forensic Case Worker to join us in our ReConnect program being delivered throughout Victoria at our Bendigo office. We’d love to hear from people who are motivated by working with a team of skilled and knowledgeable staff, innovative in finding solutions, and passionate about the right to a second chance.
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 for a community where everyone has the opportunity to thrive, and prison truly is the last resort. It’s our goal to reduce re-offending, and our purpose to strengthen the wellbeing of communities by advocating for and delivering services which divert people away from the justice system.
The ReConnect program aims to support the transition individuals being released from prison and addresses the individual and complex transitional needs of each participant through a responsive, tailored and flexible support approach.
Forensic Case Workers will be responsible for delivering (pre- and/or post-) release support to their allocated participants and will work intensively with community corrections to successfully reintegrate participants. The Forensic Case Worker will be responsible for record keeping (including data entry and case-noting) and providing assertive outreach and interventions to at-risk and vulnerable cohorts, typically face-to-face and in settings and environments that are comfortable for the participant.
We will be holding a 30 minute information session on zoom at 5pm on Thursday 06 August 2020. Please join to hear a little more about the program and ask any questions you may have - we would love to meet you! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the link to join.
To apply please click Apply Now 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).
ACSO embraces diversity within its workforce and as such encourages applications from appropriately qualified and skilled people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, including those from Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander heritage. ACSO acknowledges the traditional Aboriginal owners of country throughout Victoria and pays respect to them, their culture and their Elders, past, present and future.
