We are looking for a highly skilled, motivated and conscientious Child Development Specialist for the Intensive Family Support (IFS) team, a program which aims to improve family functioning and relationships, and the care of children. IFS is a unique program that provides practical support to families within a child protection framework. In this job, you’ll work with vulnerable families in the Browns Plains/Beaudesert areas who have multiple and/or complex needs and are at risk of entering the child protection system.
Aside from meeting the key capabilities outlined in the related position description available from www.yfs.org.au/about/jobs-yfs, ideally you will bring the following: a client focus, resilience, flexibility, inclusiveness, a collaborative spirit, creativity, innovation and cultural awareness.
At YFS, we make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable people living in the Logan and surrounding area. And we want our staff to thrive, too. So we offer great opportunities to develop your career.
We’re serious about your professional development. Half of our managers have been employed from within. And we empower each other to make decisions and try new ways of working.
We know that a happy workplace thrives. We recognise that staff have their own needs, so we encourage you to bring the entire you to work. Depending on your role, we support a number of flexible work arrangements.
Also, we offer great employment benefits including above-average pay rates, generous salary packaging (exempt from Fringe Benefits Tax) and counselling support.
