VincentCare Victoria is seeking an appropriately-qualified person to take on the position of Initial Assessment and Planning Worker. VincentCare recognises the profound importance of the IAP Worker role on further enhancing the client experience of the homelessness service system.
The Initial Assessment and Planning Worker plays an integral role within the homelessness service system and often acts as the first point of contact for most people seeking assistance. As a result, an IAP Worker is required to have advanced communication and interpersonal skills especially when working with people who are experiencing trauma and housing crisis. In addition, the role demands an ability to be innovative in providing a tailored response to individual clients while working within the existing homelessness service system. This role is ideally suited to those who are energised by working from a solutions-focused approach – working both autonomously and as part of an enthusiastic team.

Our aspiration is to be the leader in providing care, hope and advocacy for those facing disadvantage. Our purpose is to create opportunities and lasting change for the most marginalised. VincentCare is well equipped to provide a continuum of services that effectively meet the needs of people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
Northern Community Hub provides integrated services in the community housing sector, along with family violence services, case management services and youth outreach services.
A key strategic priority is attracting and retaining skilled and committed employees aligned to our values. VincentCare has over three hundred dedicated, talented and enthusiastic staff working across a range of programs and services and offers a number of benefits including:
