Wesley Mission is a high profile, multi-faceted Christian organisation making a real difference in the community. We work with the most disadvantaged in our community by providing over 200 services ranging from aged care, homeless services, child and family care, counselling, employment, training and education, and health services.
Our Vision is “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.”
Wesley Mission has a real mission – to reach out to a community with real needs. Through witness, work and with the help of supporters we can turn lives around for good. As part of Wesley’s Community and Family Care group, the Targeted Earlier Intervention (TEI) program has a focus on earlier intervention. The TEI program provides targeted services at the point where they can have the most impact - early in life and early in need. By encouraging community based solutions, alongside tailored formal supports, TEI services can ultimately prevent children and young people from entering the statutory child protection system.
This is a dynamic and challenging opportunity for an experienced professional to join a committed organisation that is well respected in the sector.
The Family and Community team is funded by the NSW Department of Community and Justice under the Targeted Earlier Intervention program.
The Family and Community team will provide a universal, early intervention service providing early engagement activities through to a quality case work model. All programs will be underpinned by evidence informed principles and work with the Targeted Earlier Intervention framework.
Salary and employment conditions are in accordance with the Social, Community, Home Care and Disability Services Industry Award 2010, Level 5, with fully maintained vehicle and capacity for salary packaging. Superannuation is paid in addition at 9.5%.
Wesley Mission is a Christian organisation requiring all staff to affirm its values. We are committed to providing an environment in which children can feel safe and valued.
The suitable applicant will be subject to the relevant pre-employment checks for appointment to positions within Wesley Mission (including provision of a valid Working with Children Check clearance number). Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged to apply.
