Berry Street’s Residential Programs provide accommodation, care and support to children and young people who cannot live with their families and who are referred through the child protection system.
About the role:
We staff our houses on a 24 hour roster, 7 days a week and you would be required to work shifts that could fall within the hours of 7am and 11pm and be required to do active night shifts (stand ups).
A recognised and relevant qualification in Residential Care (Certificate IV in Child, Youth and Family Intervention), Social Work, Youth Work, Alcohol & Other Drugs (or other relevant qualification) is ideal but not essential. Experience in working therapeutically with children and young people in a residential care setting would also be advantageous.
