Safe Steps is the only 24/7, family violence response centre in Victoria, providing a “state-wide entry point” for victim-survivors of domestic and family violence. Services include information and referral, crisis response, specialist family violence risk assessment, safety planning, Webchat, and access to supported crisis accommodation. We also provide specialist counselling nationally, through 1800RESPECT.
Our vision is safety, support and respect for all victim-survivors of domestic and family violence.
Our practice is trauma-informed and guided by evidence. We provide services to all victim-survivors and recognise that most of our work is dedicated to the needs of women and children which reflects the gendered nature of domestic and family violence.
The Specialist Trauma Counsellor will work as part of a national (1800RESPECT program) telephone and online counselling team providing highly specialised services to those whose lives have been impacted by domestic and family violence and/or sexual assault.
This position will be working within an established national framework based on the knowledge of best practice principles and requires the highest level of professionalism, ethical behaviour and compassion.
You must be able to demonstrate the following:
All offers of employment are subject to satisfactory background checks including a National Police Check (including an international police check if resided continuously in an overseas country for 12 months or more in the last ten years), Working with Children Check, disclosure of previous or current disciplinary action, referee checks, proof of eligibility to work in Australia and qualification checks.
NOTE: Safe Steps is exempt from the provisions of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 which would otherwise require the appointment to this position to be on a non-gender specific basis. Applications for this position will be considered from women only (Exemption H42/2017)
