Looking for meaningful work that can make a real impact on the quality of life of a young person? Or looking for a tree-change?
CatholicCare Tasmania is seeking to fill a full-time position until June 2023 (aligned to funding), to be responsible for our Therapeutic Residential Care sites across North-West Tasmania. The position can be based in our Burnie or Devonport office. If you are looking for a tree-change, you can’t go past Tasmania’s rugged North-West Coast.
Our Therapeutic Residential Care Service provides support to young people 12 years to 18 years referred by Child Protection Services, who require placement in a residential setting. It seeks to provide a healing environment and experiences for young people, which supports and assists them to overcome many of the challenges which they may have encountered in their life.
You will have day to day responsibility for all Inspire@HOME program activities across the region, such as therapeutic residential care placements, transitional-short term placements, independent living placements and outreach. You will oversee rostering and staff management to all Inspire@HOME employee’s in the region. You will undertake regular assessments and reviews of young people (residents) within each house; plus ensure a smooth transition into and out of the program for any young person, performance monitoring and support of teams and resource management. You will also provide emergency “on-call” support to house teams on a rotational basis. For more detailed information, please refer to the position description.
Further to the selection criteria in the position description, we are seeking suitable candidates who share our mission and values. We are seeking people who can continue to enable their teams to make a positive difference in the life of a young person in our residential care. This is a dynamic environment and at times quite challenging, however, we will provide you with extensive training and support in the role on an ongoing basis. To this end, team work is critical to our service provisions success.
