We are seeking a dedicated and passionate Assertive Outreach Worker to join the Rough Sleeper Initiative (RSI) team. The RSI team is aimed at assertively engaging with and supporting people sleeping rough in the inner metro areas. This program provides a response for people who are hard to reach, entrenched and who may have complex needs.
The Assertive Outreach Worker will work closely with a number of service providers to deliver an assertive and persistent street-level approach to outreach in order to identify, engage and work with clients to achieve sustainable outcomes; primarily rapid access to housing and intensive support and to assist clients to settle into their housing.
To be successful in this role you will hold a relevant qualification in human services, social work or other relevant discipline and have experience providing case management and support to clients with complex needs. You will have excellent interpersonal skills, take accountability for your work outcomes and be able to form and maintain strong relationships; all essential ingredients to working collaboratively with clients and other organisations to achieve common goals.
Working in a dynamic team that uses innovative housing practices, this exciting and challenging position offers applicants the opportunity to build and empower the lives of people experiencing homelessness.
