CURRENT VACANCIES

Regional Coordinator/Group Facilitator Hume Region

RTSSV is looking for someone creative, flexible and able to network and build relationships with key stakeholders. A passionate worker who can work with alongside group of like-minded coordinators across the state. Working within the justice system would be advantageous.

Supporting paid and unpaid staff across the region is an integral part of this role and requires an understanding of the emotional support needed in this environment. Strong group facilitation, counselling and people management will be required.

About the role

The Regional Coordinator supports Road Trauma Support Services Victoria (RTSSV) programs and activities across the Hume 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 that 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 this link  https://www.rtssv.org.au/education

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. As these programs are brief interventions, group facilitators need to be able to create a safe space quickly to allow participants to share their offending behaviour openly and to work on ways to prevent reoffending.

The Road Trauma Awareness program aims 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 about traffic 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/emergency service presentation.

Applications

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