Do you want to positively impact and enable safer people and places in WA while being paid to make a difference? Then you may want to know more about Injury Matters and our current positions available within our team.
We are a purpose-driven, not-for-profit organisation making a difference by providing programs and services in the community for over 25 years. As part of the Injury Matters team, you have the opportunity to influence, empower and collaborate alongside individuals, communities, and decision-makers to support and advocate for positive change.
We know that behind every injury statistic is a person, family and community, which is why our work is vital. The work undertaken by our team enables us to prevent and reduce the impact of injury and support people affected.
Our team members, the communities we work alongside, and our values are at the heart of how we work.
Our values include;
As one of the counsellors, you will be a vital member of the Recovery Support Business Unit. This is a position will be responsible for providing psychotherapeutic interventions for Injury Matters recovery support clients. You will have key responsibilities contributing and participating in best-practice recovery support activities such as service design, development, delivery, and policy.
Do you have advanced counselling skills and demonstrated experience working with clients impacted by trauma? Would your team describe you as having exceptional communication skills and the ability to work autonomously and collaboratively? Do you have experience creating and delivering presentations dependent on the community's emerging needs? Do you have experience writing reports for lawyers? If this sounds like you then we want to hear from you.
Ideally, you will possess a registration with a relevant professional Association and/or equivalent experience working in road trauma and/or mental health.
Wouldn’t you like to work in an environment that is supportive and genuinely welcomes diversity? When you join Injury Matters, you join our Injury Matters family. We have a range of benefits to support you and the essential things to ensure you have balance outside of work.
Family Support- Our team has many flexible working arrangements to support and encourage a healthy work-life balance.
Professional Development- We encourage your ongoing development professional development. With individualised plans driven by you, for you. We encourage you to identify training, projects, tasks, or even subject areas outside of your current role that you would value exposure to.
Community Support- Not only will you be making a difference in injury outcomes, but you will also have volunteering opportunities to support other causes that support positive community outcomes.
Wellbeing- We have a range of wellbeing activities for you to join in on, such as wellbeing Wednesday, bring your pet to work day, numerous morning teas (it's always someone's birthday) and regular team-building events. We evolve these in line with suggestions from our team. We love trying new ideas that support our team.
Financial- You also have the added benefit when taking annual leave to receive a 17.5% annual leave loading—a little extra for spending on holidays. We have pool cars available for our team, so there is no need to worry about driving your car to meetings.
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)– We know that people who want to make a difference have big hearts. At Injury Matters, we believe mental health is equally as important as physical health. Our EAP is available confidentially to all team members.
There are 2x positions available. One is part-time 0.6 FTE and the other full time. Both are max-term position based in our Leederville office. Some intra and inter‑state travel may be required. At times you may be required to work outside of regular business hours. You will also be required to provide a current Police Clearance, current Working with Children Check and a Drivers Licence is preferred.
If you believe you are the person we are looking for, then what are you waiting for? Send us your resume and a short cover letter outlining why you need to be our next Counsellor.
We encourage you to apply as soon as possible as shortlisting will commence immediately. Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
