As a result of growth and expansion in multiple locations, we are seeking a proactive and self-disciplined individual to join a small and supportive team. Under the guidance of both the Program and Quality Manager and the Residential Services Manager, this role will allow you to work in collaboration with multiple stakeholders both within and outside of the agency to ensure our casual staffing pool aligns with organisational needs at all times.

  • Debriefing and feedback,
  • shift allocation and elements of rostering, in line with House Managers and Care Team,
  • as well as performance management/staffing issues within our casual pool.

The candidate

This role varies on a daily basis – if you pride yourself on quality and self-discipline, then this role is for you! We need someone who is committed to building the capability of our casual pool by supporting and mentoring our youth workers to succeed in delivering consistent care for our clients.
