What You Will Be Doing
Ongoing position within the Men's specialist services team within The Orange Door, Bayside Peninsula (The Hub).

The Hubs are one of the main entry points to services for perpetrators of family violence, including receiving Victorian Police Referrals (L17’s), other professional referrals and self-referrals for these services. Perpetrators will be able to contact the Hubs online or via the telephone as well as being contacted by the Hubs in response to other professional referrals. The Hubs will also work directly with perpetrators through outreach or out-posted workers. Part of the initial functions of the Hubs (and indeed this position) will be to assess the risk posed by perpetrators and determining the
best way for the system to engage with them – including identifying the location where fact-to-face contact will be safest for workers, victims and other community members

The first 12 months within the role will be a part of the dedicated Graduate Program.
Key Objectives of the Graduate Program are:
1. To provide mentorship to Graduate Social Workers
2. To provide needs based professional services, to promote the wellbeing of families, men and women assisted by the organisation
3. To collaborate with service providers and community volunteers and to deliver needs based services, informed by professional research and knowledge
4. To work flexibly across a range of service delivery sites in accordance with accountability and compliance standards
