Have you got experience and passion for Aboriginal engagement and the delivery of impactful services? Do you want to work on innovative and meaningful projects with Pilbara Traditional Owners? Do you seek the opportunity for involvement with community at community events, and to embrace a diversity of projects and work opportunities? Then this role could be the one for you!
An opportunity has arisen for an experienced community support worker to join the Member Services team at Robe River Kuruma Aboriginal Corporation (RRKAC).
Reporting to the Member Services and Operations Manager, the suitable candidate will work within a small team providing support and advocacy to Robe River Kuruma (RRK) members. The candidate must have excellent written and verbal communication skills and be able to develop strong and wide networks within the Roebourne, Wickham and Karratha communities, particularly among case managers from government agencies, non-governmental agencies and service providers. The role will involve working closely with individual RRK people and their families so that they can access the services that are available to them.
RRKAC was established in 2013 (then Kuruma Marthudunera Aboriginal Corporation) as the corporate entity for the RRK people. The RRK people have traditional rights to an area covering nearly 16,000 square kilometres in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, and RRKAC is the Prescribed Body Corporate for the Part A and Part B Robe River Kuruma Native Title Determination areas covering nearly 10, 000 square kilometres. RRKAC is pivotal in progressing the broader interests of the RRK people, and in representing them in their dealings with governments and private industry. RRKAC’s strategic focus is to work together as a community to establish a solid foundation towards independence, community wellbeing and cultural identity. In 2018 RRKAC was awarded finalist in Reconciliation Australia’s National Indigenous Governance Awards.
