The Pilot

The Victims of Crime Commissioner is working with the Coordinator-General for Family Safety to implement a pilot project which brings together a broad range of government and non-government agencies to assess and respond to family violence risk outside of the criminal justice system. The Family Violence Safety Action Pilot has been developed as a response to the fact that many victims and perpetrators of family violence are not involved in the criminal justice system, and that the current Covid-19 health crisis has escalated risk for many family violence victim survivors. The Pilot is based at Victim Support ACT, within the ACT Human Rights Commission.

The Pilot’s purpose is to:

Ensure that information available to different agencies can be considered holistically to identify and assess risk to a client or clients (including children); and enable services providers to act collaboratively to address and manage risk for individuals and families.

The Opportunity:

As the Perpetrator Response Advisor within the Family Violence Safety Action Pilot, you will provide domestic and family violence-informed case coordination to high-risk perpetrators. This will include working closely with community and government stakeholders, engaging with perpetrators of domestic and family violence as well as direct contact with people using domestic and family violence.

This role works in the Pilot team alongside the Victim Survivor Case Coordinators, the Assistant Coordinator and the Pilot Coordinator to provide wrap-around service responses in high-risk domestic and family violence cases.

The ACT Human Rights Commission values its diverse work team. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and people with disability are encouraged to apply. If you are a person with a disability and would like assistance to apply for this position, please contact the position contact officer.

Eligibility/Other Requirements:

To be successful in your application for this role you will have:

  • Demonstrated experience working with people using domestic and family violence and with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients.
  • Knowledge and understanding of perpetrator-focused risk management responses.
  • Engagement skills that support working with perpetrators of violence and increasing their motivation to engage in behaviour change programs.
  • Outstanding interpersonal skills, and the ability to work collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills.
  • Demonstrated ability to manage work priorities and adapt to a dynamic work environment.
