About the role
An exciting NEW position recently created
Road Trauma Support Services Victoria (RTSSV) is looking for someone who is creative, flexible, able to network and build relationships with key stakeholders and build on a well-respected program.
You will be a passionate worker who can work alongside a group of like-minded group facilitators across Victoria.
Previous experience working within the justice system is highly recommended as there is a need to understand offending behaviour.
Supporting paid and unpaid staff across the region is an important part of this role and requires out of hours work and some travel across the State of Victoria.
The Road Trauma Awareness Seminar Program Coordinator supports all aspects of RTSSV’s Road Trauma Awareness Seminar (RTAS) program including the development, implementation, and evaluation of the program provided to drivers with traffic offences or at risk of offending. This will require an understanding of the justice system, road safety, and health services sectors as well as having a strong program development, training, and people management background.
The position is 0.8 EFT, 30 hours per week, fixed-term 30 June 2022 (extension possible), and aims to be flexible so it can be worked around a casual workforce.
The RTAS Program Coordinator will work with key stakeholders and staff to maintain and build on the current program, maintain policies and processes, and relevant reporting.
As the program coordinator, you will manage the program’s employees and handle administrative tasks such as managing and maintaining the program’s budget, determining and implementing policies and procedures, managing program-related internal and external communications, and organising and maintaining the program agenda.
We offer a range of educational programs in the regions, please refer to this link https://www.rtssv.org.au/education
The RTAS 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 in relation to 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
