CRC is excited to be expanding the Youth Pathways team of dedicated professionals working to change lives of children and young people caught up in the criminal justice system. And we’d love to hear from you.
- Play a key part in our program and contribute to long-lasting change for our clients and the community.
- Join a diverse and passionate team in a flexible and supportive organisation
We want to hear from people from all backgrounds, including people who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander or people with lived experience of the criminal justice system.
CRC works with some of the state’s most stigmatised and marginalised people, and we are dedicated to providing them with the help they need. While our work can sometimes be challenging, the rewards are significant.
As a Case Worker in our Youth Pathways Program, you’ll be at the heart of a high-impact team. You’ll use holistic case management to provide specialist support for children and young people with complex needs who are leaving NSW Correctional Centres and Youth Justice Centres.
Using a throughcare model focusing on providing a continuum of support aimed to address the complex and diverse needs of children and young people, your role includes:
- Client support: Receiving referrals, holistic case management with a focus on AOD issues, project administration and troubleshooting will make up most of your day. You’ll actively build positive relationships with Government, community and other services to source relevant support and options for children and young people. You’ll approach every task with empathy, keeping our clients’ goals front and centre.
- Creating community connections for clients: Using an outreach model pre- and post-release, you’ll play a vital role providing clients with practical and psychosocial supports. The goal? To ensure long-term supports, reduce incarceration and reduce recidivism.
- Data, administrative and assessment duties: While the majority of this job involves client-facing duties, data collection will be an important part of your role. You’ll conduct general administrative duties, Workplace Health and Safety monitoring, and updating and maintaining accurate case files.
- Cultural safety: You’ll work in culturally appropriate ways in recognition of the unique cultural needs and over-representation of First Nations children and young people in the criminal justice system. You will support clients and their families to have their cultural needs met.
Why work for us?
- Support programs that aim to break entrenched cycles of disadvantage, homelessness and imprisonment
- Be part of a community-based agency that has been delivering effective services in our field for over 70 years
- Join a dedicated, energetic team with a culture of flexibility, trust, integrity and respect
