BECOME A CHILD SAFETY OFFICER
This is an exciting time for the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women. We are advancing the Stronger Families Changing Futures reforms, focusing on delivering the right services at the right time to better support families, children, young people and women.
Child Safety Officers work with vulnerable children and their families to ensure parents receive the support they need to safely care for their children. It can be a complex and challenging career, but also highly rewarding.
Child Safety Officers empower families to care for their children, and assess, investigate and manage cases where children may be at risk of harm or abuse. Child Safety Officers also support those children who are living in out-of-home care.
Experienced Child Safety Officers have opportunities to expand their role to include training, mentoring and managing staff; and practice and policy development.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER STUDENTS WHO
are studying in or near the final year of:
- Bachelor or Masters of Social Work
- Bachelor of Human Services or Social Welfare
- Bachelor of Psychology or Behavioural Science
- other similar bachelor degrees (dependent on subjects studied or work experience).
