CURRENT VACANCIES

Group Facilitator – casual

Road Trauma Support Services Victoria is looking for experienced group facilitators who can work with traffic offenders where participants are diverse in their demographics and offending behaviour. Currently, we need facilitators across the Gippsland Region and looking at people to deliver programs in the Bairnsdale, Morwell and Wonthaggi areas.

About the role:

As the work is casual and mostly after hours this can be done on top of current work. We offer a range of different programs for different groups of traffic offenders.

These positions require people to have had experience working in groups with mandated participants. As these programs are brief interventions, group facilitators need to be able to create a safe space quickly to allow participants to openly share their offending behaviour and to work on ways to prevent reoffending.

The traffic offender programs aim to bring about attitude and behavioural change and reduce recidivism. They are based on restorative justice principles and employ a cognitive behavioural approach using both volunteer speakers with personal experiences of trauma as well as presenters from the emergency services.

The program aims are to:
• Confront and evaluate participant belief systems regarding traffic-related offending
• Bring about a shift from blame to choice
• Assist participants in identifying and managing precursors to offending
• Provide peer discussion and problem-solving
• Provide reality-based learning using volunteer/paramedic presentation

How to apply:

Applicants must address the key accountabilities, meet the capabilities framework, have a recent CV and have sent their application to Chris Harrison at chris.harrison@rtssv.org.au by Friday 19 January 2018.

If you have further enquiries please call Chris on 03 8877 6909.

About the role:

Supporting paid and unpaid staff across the region is an important part of this role and requires an understanding of the emotional support needed in this environment. Strong facilitation and training skills will be required.

The Regional Coordinator supports RTSSV programs and activities across the Gippsland Region. This will require an understanding of the justice system, road safety and health services sectors
The position is casual and aims to be flexible so it can be worked around current employment, however, there needs to be some availability during business hours to be able to network with key people and attend meetings with road safety and court user groups.

The Regional Coordinator will work with their local teams to develop strategies to network across the region, implement programs and work with referrers to give updates as to outcomes.
We offer a range of educational programs in the regions, please refer to our education page for more information.

As the position also has a group facilitator role within the education programs it will require people to have had experience working in groups with mandated participants.
