Vacancies

YAC is looking for people who are enthusiastic about working with young people, display good judgement and initiative and are good team members to fill the following positions.

This is a great opportunity to join a well-respected community legal and social welfare agency for young people and play your part in helping young people and their families to get their lives back on track!  YAC has a multidisciplinary team delivering services across the greater Brisbane area generally, to young people aged 10-18 years who are involved in, or at risk of involvement in the youth justice and/or child protection systems, and/or are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

YAC has an expectation that all staff will be reliable and punctual, both within the office and in responding to young people and their families, and that they will support diversity and respect in the workplace and in their practice.

YAC values diversity in all its forms and welcomes applications from Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people; those from ethnically diverse communities; and LGBTIQ+ persons.

The following positions are currently open for applications:

Bail and Order Support (BOSS) Caseworker

  • Brisbane-based
  • 38 hours/week
  • Contract to 30/06/23 (with possibility for extension)
  • SCHCADS Level 5

The BOSS CW provides support to young people to be granted bail rather than being remanded in custody pending a court dealing with their matter, and support to maintain bail, through a holistic response to address the risk factors that have contributed to a young person’s involvement in the youth justice system. For high risk young people, Courts
and police are more likely to grant bail if a bail support service is available. These young people will often display
ongoing and entrenched offending behaviour, have complex and extreme needs and significant trauma
backgrounds.

Bail and Order Support (BOSS) Youth Worker

  • Sunshine Coast-based
  • 28 hours/week
  • Contract to 30/06/23 (with possibility of extension)
  • SCHCADS Level 3/4

The BOSS YW provides practical, mainly outreach support to young people in line with their case plan and in
consultation with the Sunshine Coast Bail Support Caseworker. The BOSS YW will attend Maroochydore Children’s Court callover on Wednesdays by way of outreach to young people in the youth justice system.
