We are connected, proud of our impact, creative, high performing, inclusive and welcoming… are you?
As with most regional or remote operations, working in these environments can come with a range of great experiences and challenges beyond what you might experience elsewhere. You will develop and nurture relationships with local communities while embracing the unexpected, as every day will be different.
In return for your commitment to our vision, Anglicare WA provides the opportunity to make a real impact, with the autonomy to be creative and innovative, and really explore your passion.
Anglicare WA is a highly regarded not for profit organisation, delivering a diverse range of community services throughout Western Australia. With over 630 staff and 320 volunteers, we are passionate about having a real and sustainable impact in the Western Australian community and to do this we need talented and engaged people who share our drive to achieve positive outcomes.
The Separation Services Program, based in Karratha, provides professional and confidential counselling, family dispute resolution, property mediation and support services to parents and children, assisting families to come to terms with separation and co-parenting, enabling and empowering them to move from “surviving to thriving”.
This is where you come in…
You are passionate about your professional practice and specifically about providing culturally appropriate services that aim to strengthen family relationships with a particular focus on the children’s needs. You thrive on establishing respectful, meaningful, inclusive and collaborative relationships with your clients. You are a highly skilled negotiator and communicator as well as a natural facilitator. Your ethical and reflective approach coupled with effective conflict resolution skills will see you excel in this space.
As the Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner you will walk compassionately and respectfully alongside families. You will aim to provide alternatives to formal legal processes for families who want to improve their family relationships, to prevent separation and to facilitate parents to make arrangements in the best interests of their children after separation. You will assist families with parenting and property matters and capable of working with families with complex needs, including those with family violence issues. Anglicare WA takes a therapeutic and child focused approach in assisting families through separation. In the NW we also offer services aimed at improving family relationships and preventing separation by means of education and support.
This role is a full time max term contract until 30 June 2021, based in Karratha.
While your relevant tertiary qualifications in and significant family dispute resolution experience tell us part of your story, your values and attitude speak louder still. At Anglicare WA we are all about people, placing people at the heart of our work. We are focused on strengths, believing in and amplifying the strength of people and communities. We are fiercely inclusive, making sure everyone can belong. As trusted partners we are curious and creative, always looking for new ways to do better. We are courageous and gutsy, tackling difficult issues, even when it’s hard. You will embrace a culture of inclusion and have demonstrated capacity to work in cross-cultural situations, especially with Aboriginal people.
If the opportunity to develop your career in an organisation whose values align with yours excites you then we want to hear from you today!
