SEEKING A ROLE WHERE YOU CAN REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

Tap into your innate ability to connect and support in a role that offers an opportunity to make a genuine impact in the lives of others.

This rewarding role does require a degree in social work or mental health. Add your empathetic, calm and approachable nature and you’ll spend your days guiding and empowering those who need it most, our children and young people.

As a Youth Advisor, your passion, creativity, sense of humour and five or more years of experience will be a valued addition to an already amazing, dedicated team. Matching your flexible and autonomous nature, you’ll join your colleagues in person once a week in our office in Ryde, then work to your own schedule, either from home or on client visits.

AND YOU ARE?

A youth-focused social services professional. You operate with positivity, compassion, drive, and flexibility. These are key qualities for this Youth Advisor. Blend these with the following attributes for an unbeatable combination:

  • Experience in providing psychosocial support and targeted intervention to young people
  • Expertise in connecting people with disability to the relevant agencies
  • Registration with a professional industry body (AASW or APS)
  • Clear written and verbal communication skills
  • An aptitude for working autonomously
  • A current driver’s licence and comprehensively insured car

Reporting directly to a passionate and supportive CEO, your role entails:

  • Improving the mental health of children and young people at risk of Huntington’s disease, or living with a family member affected
  • Delivering information sessions to schools, parents and carers
  • Organising group events to build connections and foster supportive relationships
  • Driving and leading youth counselling sessions
  • Developing effective, specific emotional coping strategies for children and young people
  • Contributing to mandatory compliance audits and reporting requirements

WHAT MAKES THIS ORGANISATION ONE YOU’D WANT TO WORK FOR?

Since 1975, Huntington’s NSW & ACT has been a strong voice and advocate for better services for those affected by Huntington’s Disease, a rare, inherited neurological disease.

This part-time position offers extensive FBT benefits, and meal and entertainment allowances, and is a chance to build a meaningful career as you drive and grow the youth program and acquire further skills with specialised Huntington’s disease training.
