About Us

The Australian Community Support Organisation (ACSO) is a vibrant, values driven NFP, focused on partnering with Government and the community to co-design services that create real social change. We are an organisation with a bold vision to create a safe and inclusive community where prison truly is the last resort. Our purpose is to strengthen the wellbeing of our communities by advocating for and delivering services which divert people away from the justice system.

The Australian Community Support Organisation recognises the right to a safe and inclusive service without bias. ACSO is committed to the equitable treatment of its participants, employees and partners. We believe in humanity and celebrating the diverse voices of our community through leadership, practice and policy design, to honour and embrace diverse traditions, cultures and experiences of those we support and work alongside.

About the role

In the Transition to Work (TTW) Program, we believe work is more than receiving a pay cheque. Work provides people with a sense of purpose and sense of self. We're passionate about supporting young people who have become disengaged from education or the employment and working with them to reach their full potential. We provide intensive, pre-employment support to improve the work-readiness of young people and help them into the workforce (including apprenticeships and traineeships) or education. We also work with employers to ensure young people meet their needs and are supported to settle into jobs. We use creative and fun activities to engage and build the capacity of our young people.

The Team Leader will be responsible for leading the day-to day service delivery of TTW, supervising a medium sized team to ensure quality client outcomes. The Team Leader will report to the Program Manager and will be required to assist in the recruitment and onboarding of new staff, staff training and development and managing the team's performance through monitoring work quality and output.
