About us

We are an award winning organisation established to provide a range of accommodation and support services to people that are facing disadvantage throughout metropolitan and regional Victoria. Our aspiration is to be the leader in providing care, hope and advocacy for those facing disadvantage through our provision of services that effectively meet the needs of people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.

We are committed to the principles of social justice and aim to ensure every individual is treated with dignity and respect regardless of their cultural background, ability, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation or religion. We recognise cultural, gender and occupational differences; we encourage diversity and employ dedicated, talented and enthusiastic staff who work across a range of programs and services.

Our purpose is to create opportunities and lasting change for the most marginalised and disadvantaged in our community, aiming always to support, empower and to respect a client's dignity.

About the team

HomeConnect is a program designed to prevent or intervene early to provide support and accommodation to young adults, adults, families and children who are at risk of homelessness or are recently homeless. The program aims to support and empower individuals and families to stabilise and rebuild their lives to remain housed or to be re-housed, provide holistic support, build confidence and self-esteem, and develop an overall plan to engage and support clients. A range of specialist positions exist in the team to provide a wraparound support based around the client's aspirations and needs.

About the role

VincentCare Victoria is seeking an appropriately-qualified person to provide leadership, guidance, mentoring and supervision to the team who provide support to clients into stable accommodation.

Key to the success of this role will be using feminist principles to support the team and victim-survivors, fostering a culture of inclusivity and promoting a strengths-based and trauma-informed approach.

You have an understanding of partnership initiatives and deliverables and an ability to lead, work with and alongside other programs and organisations.

You have experience in maintaining constructive and respectful working relationships to provide an integrated service response across VincentCare and bring about change to enhance service delivery.

  • We have some great talent who are happy to share their knowledge and experiences to help you on your way.
  • Salary packaging, sometimes called salary sacrificing is a huge attraction here! It is a popular way of providing employees in the community sector with tax benefits over and above their salary. It means the real value of a salary package can be significantly higher than the nominal value.
