Social Worker - Inverell

The Benevolent Society

  • Support families to live their life, their way
  • Experienced social worker
  • Join the Brighter Futures team in Inverell

At The Benevolent Society, we’ve been supporting people to live their life, their way, since 1813.

Your new role

You’ll be joining the Brighter Futures team in Inverell. You’ll partner with a small number of at-risk families as you support the family to identify their strengths and needs. Our goal is to work alongside families to reduce the number of children entering the child protection space and to give families the tools they need for supportive and healthy family relationships.

Who are you?

You’re an experienced case manager, having worked with families, children and young people at the pointy end of child protection. You understand how to build relationships and gain trust with the adults, young people, and children you work alongside to optimise outcomes.

We also work with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, so you’ll need to be committed to culturally safe practice.

We know the work isn’t always easy. You know when to turn to the team around you for support and how important self-care really is.

What’s in it for you?

How about flexibility in the way you work? Then there’s options to purchase up to 2 weeks of annual leave, access to long service leave after 5 years, paid parental leave, employee assistance program, discount fitness membership…

What you need to succeed?

You’re going to need to be an experienced social worker or case manager with experience working in a role with at risk families either already in the child protection space or very close to it.

While we would love for you to have a degree, we also understand there’s many reasons why you might not have one. Experience can be very valuable and we’re happy to chat about how your experience aligns.

What’s most important is your amazing practice. You work within best practice theoretical frameworks you’re culturally safe, and you love what you do!
