Injury and Wellbeing Manager - Flexible Location

Save The Children

We recognise that healthy and happy workers mean better outcomes for the vulnerable children we work with each day. We need your creativity, empathy, and passion to help us develop, implement, monitor and review innovative strategies, programs, management systems, projects and initiatives to prevent injury and illness and promote workplace wellbeing.

Save the Children is no ordinary not-for-profit

We're ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children's rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We run programs in Australia and overseas and, if there's a disaster - like an earthquake, drought or conflict - we are there on the ground.

Where you come in

In this full-time permanent position, which can be based in any location in the Australia/Pacific time zone, you will build and support a positive wellbeing culture through the development, implementation, monitoring and review of appropriate work systems, education and communication relating to all aspects of injury management, return to work (RTW) and wellbeing. You'll be part of our People, Culture and Risk team and report to our Head of Workplace Safety and Wellbeing.

You will make an impact by:

  • Facilitating and coordinating all workers compensation and injury management activities throughout the organisation
  • Ensuring legislative obligations are met in each State with regards to injury/illness and return to work and workers compensation management
  • Ensuring collaborative relationships with workers, operational management, and human resources personnel to manage cases of both work and non-work-related injury and illness
  • Proactively consulting with internal and external stakeholders and researching and analysing wellbeing data to identify strategic wellbeing opportunities
  • Ensuring workers and managers are informed of Save the Children processes regarding injury/illness and return to work management
  • Developing and implementing a plan of initiatives within the workplace that support a positive wellbeing culture

Does this sound like you?

In addition to your technical knowledge and experience in injury management and return to work coordination, your empathic and people-centric approach, excellent organisation, and administration skills alongside your analytical instincts will see you drive the delivery of quality outcomes within strict deadlines. You're able to plan and prioritise work, are flexible and self-motivated to provide ranging support to see the team succeed.

This role requires:

  • Injury Management Coordinator or Rehabilitation and Return to Work Coordinator qualification
  • Demonstrated experience in managing injury, illness and complex claims, ideally in a multi-state exposure
  • Proven experience in developing, delivering, and interpreting industry benchmarking reports for the purposes of educating key stakeholders in our current performance in workers compensation and insurance premiums, and making recommendations based on this data
  • Knowledge of the workers' compensation system including legislative requirements and the responsibilities of employers and injured employees
  • Ability to liaise and build collaborative relationships with a diverse range of stakeholders to drive outcomes and escalations where appropriate
  • Conflict management and issue resolution skills
  • An Allied Health qualification in occupational therapy, psychology, physiotherapy, or rehabilitation counselling, desirable but not essential

Working at Save the Children is more than just a job

It's the feeling of knowing that your work is contributing to making the world a better place for children and working with others who feel the same. In addition to a connection to social causes, you will have access to:

  • Individual learning plans and regular formal training to assist in your career development
  • Internal employment and development opportunities
  • Friendly and flexible work environment
  • Agile work environment including working from home
  • Pet and child friendly work environment
