MoneyMob Talkabout is a values driven for-purpose organisation. We provide a range of community programs in the APY Lands in northern South Australia.
We advocate, influence, build and share knowledge to tackle inequality. We are developing our knowledge in trauma-informed practice, critical to achieving wellbeing.
Our vision: Aboriginal people and communities are empowered to achieve economic wellbeing and self-determination. In this, Aboriginal people are equal partners in and co-creators of our practice.
We're a young organisation that’s achieved big things. Our advocacy work on unconscionable mobile phone sales to remote First Nations clients led directly to the imposition of Australia’s second largest corporate fine.
Our current programs include:
We’re looking for an intelligent, values-driven case worker, with a passion for home energy sustainability and helping people stay connected to power so they can maintain health and wellbeing.
Electricity payment was only introduced to the Anangu Communities in the APY Lands, Yalata and Oak Valley from July 2022. It is likely there will be a significant period of adjustment as community members transition to paid power. MoneyMob’s Pawa Atunmankunytjaku team has been visiting households since 2020, with the aim of preparing Anangu for this change, and a further 12 months of support for customers experiencing hardship is being funded by the SA Government.
Please Note: Employment will also be subject to a National Police Clearance and Working with Children check.
You will also be welcomed into a friendly and passionate team, with comprehensive support from colleagues and management, and ongoing opportunities for career development and advancement.
Although traditionally regarded as a small, dusty town with a few rustic buildings, Alice Springs today offers all of the shopping, sight-seeing and entertainment facilities of a modern urban town, and is home to a thriving arts community and a wealth of adventure opportunities. In addition to its rich history and diverse cultural heritage, you can explore the local arts scene, sports teams, photography, camping, hiking, motor sports, desert-racing and more, whilst benefiting from the relaxed country atmosphere, fantastic weather and internationally-renowned environment.
The Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yunkunytjatjara (APY) Lands covers over 103,000 square kilometres of remote South Australia, near the tri-state border. Home to around 3000 people of Aboriginal descent over seven main communities and seventeen homelands, the land was returned to the traditional owners in 1981.
The area itself is a vital part of Aboriginal desert culture, with many people there identifying the history and basic laws of human existence as largely being written in the land.
Courage: We are committed to advocating strongly for change and confronting injustices.
Empowerment: We work to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to exercise their agency in their ongoing struggle for autonomy, rights, opportunities and recognition of the inherent value of their culture and communities.
Integrity: Honesty, openness, accountability, fairness and inclusiveness must be at the core of everything we do and are.
Insight: We take reasoned action grounded in our organisational knowledge, evidence and ethics; the wisdom of the people, organisations and communities working alongside us; current thinking and research about what works nationally and internationally.
Innovation: We are an enterprising and agile organisation, motivated to continually improve, adapt and develop inventive solutions that create value and are valued by people.
