About the organisation

Organisation Name : Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare

The Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare (the Centre) is the peak body for child and family services in Victoria. For over 100 years we have advocated for the rights of children and young people to be heard, to be safe, to access education and to remain connected to family, community and culture. We represent over 150 community service organisations (CSOs), students and individuals throughout Victoria working across the continuum of child and family services, from prevention and early intervention to the provision of out-of-home care.

The Centre provides public policy and program advice, deliver sector training, facilitate and publish research, advocate for positive reform and work with our member agencies to make sure children and families have access to the services and support they need. We also provide consultancy services for the child and family services sector, which include developing frameworks, writing research-informed practice manuals, developing tools and resources, designing and delivering targeted training, working closely with community service organisations, local government and state government departments to build workforce capability. We run regular forums across a range of policy and practice areas to capture the views of child and family services organisations and their clients and manage various projects designed to improve practice in the sector.

About the role

  • Be part of a small engaging team supporting workforces in their information sharing practices to promote child wellbeing and safety
  • Use your project experience to foster improved collaboration and sharing of good practice in information sharing
  • 12-month contract with salary packaging and opportunity for full time or 0.8 time fraction (could suit a secondment)

The Project Officer will be responsible for undertaking a range of project activities to increase awareness of child information sharing in prescribed workforces (e.g. education, health, child and family services, and justice) and to build workforce confidence in using the Child and Family Violence Information Sharing Schemes (the Schemes) to undertake quality, timely and appropriate child information sharing, to promote child wellbeing or safety, and to assess or manage family violence risk to a child.

About you

You will be looking for an opportunity to take on a challenging project over the next 12 months. You will have previous experience of undertaking project activities within a given timeframe and budget. You will be confident in engaging with stakeholders. You will have a good understanding of the information sharing reforms and how these intersect with the Multi-Agency Risk Assessment and Management Framework (MARAM).
