Manager - Women's Safety and Empowerment Services

Penrith Women's Health Centre


As part of an internal realignment project, and soon to move to new premises, PWHC is recruiting a new role: Manager – Women’s Safety and Empowerment Services.

The primary purpose of this new role is to manage a range of services provided by PWHC which address the ways in which domestic and family violence has undermined Women’s (and their children’s) safety, health and wellbeing, material and economic safety, participation and dignity.

The role manages a small team consisting of an Intake Officer role and a small team of dedicated and highly capable Domestic and Family Violence Specialist Case Managers whose work is guided by the various national, state and local plans to reduce violence against women and their children by providing a range of safety and empowerment services and supports including with a focus on security and resilience.  The services recognises that domestic and family violence may include violence from intimate partner or family members, or kinship member.

The role manages several grants, the focus of which may change from time to time, and includes a part time client load, providing services that are provided through a client-centred, trauma-informed, culturally appropriate model of care.  

As the name suggests, we are adopting a new approach focussing more explicitly on the outcomes that the services are hoping to achieve (safety and resilience), rather than the problem they are aimed to address (i.e., domestic and family violence).

The desired skill set for the new Manager role will include proven capability in managing DV services along with strong financial management capability (due to the number of funding streams which will fund the position in this team).

The model of care includes a client-focused, trauma informed approach to service delivery: whereby family safety specialist employees will be able to offer clients any or all of the full range of DV services that PWHC is funded to provide.

The Manager - Women’s Safety and Empowerment Services will also manage Work Development Orders and Subpoena requests (with assistance from the Administration Officers/Reception team members if/as required).

To support your resilience in this role, the role is part time (0.89 FTE; 9 x 7.5 hr days per fortnight).

In addition, PWHC provides all team members with fully funded monthly professional supervision with an independent external supervisor of your choice (in paid work time), free 24/7 confidential Employee Assistance Program, as well as an annual subscription to the Calm App, plus up to $1,500 per year per team member for professional development.

If you are looking for a new challenge and would like to be part of the PWHC Leadership Team, working closely with the new CEO to build a positive workplace culture and make PWHC a great place to work, please apply now.
