At The Benevolent Society, we’ve been supporting people to live their life, their way, since 1813.
Team leaders are one of the most important roles in social work. You’re hands on and you lead a group of people to deliver great practice and better outcomes for the families they work with. You manage relationships with partner organisations, and coordinate referrals for the best outcomes.
In your new role you’ll be a leading a team based across Moree, Inverell and Tenterfield. You’ll support the team to build amazing, culturally safe practice. And you’ll be backed not only by an experienced manager, but also our Practice and Impact Management team (we call them PIMS).
You’re passionate about leading a team to make a difference. You understand the team leader role is one where you can make the biggest difference by supporting your people to deliver services and supports that enable families, young people and children to live their life, their way. Whatever that means.
You have a strong understanding of the child protection space and a passion for coaching others to be more.
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.
You’re an experienced social worker. We prefer you to be degree qualified, but we also understand that’s not everyone’s path.
We also prefer that you have some experience a leading a team. If you’re getting ready for a step up, this could include secondment experiences, or perhaps you can demonstrate how you build practice in others and connect, even when you’re not in the same place.
Importantly you’re about people – clients and your team. And what links people is great practice.
