MoneyMob Talkabout is a not-for-profit organisation delivering a range of financial and community support programs with and for people in remote Indigenous communities.
Our Money Hub in the APY Lands, which has operated since 2012, provides a one-stop shop for local community members to interact with the broader economy in a safe and supportive environment. Teams also visit other communities in South Australia from Pipalyatjarra to Indulkana providing services on an outreach basis.
MoneyMob Talkabout is actively committed to being an Aboriginal run and led service, as such we strongly encourage experienced and qualified Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to apply for this position.
MoneyMob Talkabout is currently looking for a person to fill a part time (30 hpw) Centrelink Agent/Community Admin Support role. This role is based in Pukatja (Ernabella), in the APY Lands in SA. This role is being offered on a 12 month fixed term contract, with the possibility of extension.
Reporting to the Corporate Services Manager, this is a hands-on role that will see you responsible for the smooth running of the Pukatja office and training and ongoing support of local office staff.
The Pukatja office is a critical resource to Anangu in the Pukatja community as a hub from accessing mail, banking, Centrelink, financial counselling and other services.
This position is essential to the daily operation of these services and ensuring that the office is a safe and comfortable space for people to come to. The role embodies the essence of our vision and values to empower Aboriginal people; both our clients and co-workers by sharing knowledge, developing skills and building independence for people to interact with institutions and agencies autonomously.
