Save The Children

Save the Children Australia runs family support services across Smithton and Devonport, working with families where children are engaged with, or at risk of being engaged with, Child Safety Services. We need you to lead our team to deliver evidence-based programs for families and children with complex, high needs. We're seeking someone who has a passion for assisting our communities' most vulnerable, at risk children and families to reach their full potential.

Save the Children is no ordinary not-for-profit

We're ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children's rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We've been operating in Tasmania for nearly 70 years, working with families, communities and children themselves to give them the best possible start. More information on our work in Tasmania is available here.

Where you come in:

In this part-time, maximum term position (3 days a week for 6 months, with possible additional hours and potential contract extension), based in Devonport, you will lead 6 staff members to deliver family support programs across North West Tasmania. You'll be responsible for the operational running of activities and supporting your staff, including providing their professional supervision.

  • Monitoring program contracts (under guidance) to ensure contractual obligations are met

If we could compose the perfect you…

… Working from a strengths-based perspective, you'll be someone who highly values the wellbeing of their staff. You'll have experience in leading a team and delivering professional supervision, in carrying out risk assessments and in managing the safety of children in vulnerable families. Importantly, you'll keep the values of Save the Children at the forefront of your work and will always seek excellence in the services we provide to families.

This role requires:

  • Experience working with families from diverse and disadvantaged communities
  • Working knowledge of the Tasmanian Child Safety system
  • A diploma level certification (minimum) in a relevant field
  • Proven leadership skills, the ability to nurture a cohesive team
  • Valid driver's licence

Working at Save the Children is more than just a job

It's the feeling of knowing that your work is contributing to making the world a better place for children and working with others who feel the same. In addition to a connection to social causes, you will have access to:

  • Individual learning plans to assist in your career development
  • Friendly and flexible work environment
  • Child friendly work environment
  • Award rate salary plus full salary packaging benefits

At Save the Children, we seek a workforce that is as diverse as our society - in race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexuality, cultures and beliefs - and reflects the communities we work in. We believe diversity and inclusion are fundamental to our culture and core values and we demonstrate this commitment through all our employment practices. Our inclusive workplace culture contributes to making Save the Children a great place to work.
