The core mission of Anglicare (NSW South, West & ACT) is to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty for children, young people and families. We have a particular focus on serving vulnerable communities in the ACT and regional, rural NSW.
The Premier's Youth Initiative is a homelessness prevention program for young people leaving Out of Home Care (OOHC). Anglicare (known as St Saviours in the Sydney area) in partnership with Argyle Community Housing delivers the program in the southwest region of Sydney.
We are looking for staff who are excellent at developing and maintaining genuine relationships with young people from diverse backgrounds and with a range of care needs aged 17 - 22.
The role of the Personal Advisor will assist young people to develop the capacity to independently manage crisis and change by maintaining safe, secure housing, developing strong personal networks and the skills needed to navigate adult supports and service systems.
This key role is dependent on building rapport with young people and providing advice and support and while tertiary qualifications are required, a demonstration of lived experiences is also valued. Experience in working with Aboriginal young people, their families, and communities is desirable.
You will need to hold a minimum Diploma of Community Services. Knowledge of OOHC and excellent communication skills and a driver's license are also essential. Experience working with children and young people with high support needs is desirable.
The salary range for this position is $41.89 to $43.79 per hour, plus 9.5% employer superannuation guarantee. Generous salary packaging benefits are available under Anglicare's PBI status. Anglicare also offers other benefits including additional personal leave and paid parental leave.
Applicants will be required to undertake personality and behavioural assessments and must obtain a Working With Children clearance through the Office of the Children's Guardian (NSW) and undergo a National Criminal History Check prior to an offer of employment.
