Yalari is seeking a Student Support Officer on a permanent part-time basis to work with our Yalari scholarship students at Kinross Wolaroi School in Orange, for 15 hours per week.
Yalari provides boarding school scholarships to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from regional, rural and remote areas of Australia to study at leading independent boarding schools. It is our belief that education is the key to generational change and a brighter future for Indigenous children.
Student Support Officers (SSO’s) work directly with scholarship recipients by forming supportive bonds with each child and by facilitating effective relationships between students, parents/guardians and partner schools. Please note that the majority of this work will be after school, evenings and weekends and requires some flexibility.
Reporting to Yalari Head Office on the Gold Coast, you will work as part of a remote team and need the ability to form a home office, and travel to our partner school to start your shifts. This role requires travel to the Gold Coast five times a year: four 2-day workshops, and a 5-day orientation camp for new students each January.
Student Support Officers are integral to the success of our scholarship program. The right candidate will have proven communication, collaboration, and negotiation skills. We are seeking someone who has a good sense of humour, a can-do attitude, and an ability to quickly build rapport with Yalari team members, students, families, and school staff.
You will have full rights to work in Australia and live locally to the partner school allocated to the role.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged to apply.
