About Us

At its core NPY Women’s Council is about family and community – walytja. Our purpose is to work with women, children and their families of the Ngaanyatjarra, Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara region in central Australia. Our role is to work side-by-side and help increase their capacity to lead safe and healthy lives with improved life choices.

Walytjapiti means full family, group or gathering of relations. Strength, culture and land are also implicit in the word. The Walytjapiti team deliver trauma informed therapeutic case management with families across eight remote communities in the Northern Territory and APY lands.

The Walytjapiti Program’s vision is for Anangu families to remain healthy and positive about the future. To live in strong and independent communities where there is increased socioeconomic equality, children are in school and adults are meaningfully engaged. These are communities where people are proud of their cultural identity, celebrate its rich and dynamic nature and raise happy, healthy children.

We are now recruiting for a full-time Case Worker to become part of the Walytjapiti team.

If successful, you will work with families and children in various remote communities in Central Australia, who are at risk of child protection intervention, working to support and strengthen families in order for children to remain safe,

You will have a background in Social Work, Early Childhood or Community Development and have experience in managing a caseload. Working with trauma informed frameworks or the ability to adopt those practices would be desirable.

This is a unique chance to work for an organisation that takes a grassroots approach to community development. You will have the privilege of working closely alongside Anangu families and communities and get to experience an amazing landscape and part of the world. This is an extraordinary opportunity to learn about yourself, another culture and grow professionally at the same time.

You will receive a comprehensive orientation program as well as best practice supervision and professional development that includes vicarious trauma, case management and four-wheel drive training. We also provide critical incident debriefing and a range of counselling services to support you.

In addition to this, we offer a generous remuneration package. You will receive an above award salary, salary packaging benefits, 30 days of annual leave, 15 days of personal leave (to care for you and your family) and a retention bonus. We also provide NPYWC accommodation and use of a company vehicle whilst travelling.
