About Us:

At Anglicare Victoria our focus is on transforming the futures of children and young people, families and adults. Our work is based on three guiding pillars, Prevent, Protect, Empower. We offer a comprehensive network of services and seek to ensure the provision of high quality services that will bring about significant improvements in the life experience of the young people, children and families/caregivers with whom we work.

The Position: 

Anglicare Victoria provides foster care for children and young people who are temporarily unable to live at home. Anglicare Victoria is the State’s largest provider of foster care and plays a vital role in protecting children and young people by ensuring they have a safe, stable and nurturing home while their family cannot care for them.

Our Southern Foster Care program provides Complex, Intensive and General Home Based Care for children and young people aged between 0 and 18 years. Children enter foster care for a number of reasons, most being placed in out of home care following Child Protection intervention and can stay with our carers for as short as one night or for several years.

To Be Successful in this Position You Will Need:

  • A relevant tertiary qualification in Social Work, Psychology, Early Childhood Specialist and/or related behavioural sciences at degree level with proven experience; or associate diploma level with substantial experience in the relevant service stream.
  • Demonstrated case work experience in foster care, other out of home care programs, family services or within the community services sector, including knowledge and experience of assessment intervention strategies.
  • Demonstrated understanding of the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing, with a particular emphasis on the Child Protection function, and the ability to develop strong working relationships within the protective services field.
  • Ability to communicate effectively with a range of people, including clients, caregivers and professional staff.
  • Demonstrated ability to work under pressure, manage competing demands and respond in a crisis situation.

Please Note: It is mandatory for the successful applicant to hold a current Working with Children Check and be prepared to undergo a National Criminal History Check prior to commencement.
