Group Facilitator Men's Behaviour Change Programs

This is an exciting opportunity for motivated and experienced group facilitators to join Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV) in this important role within an organisation that has been delivering effective client focused services and outcomes in Victoria for over 70 years.    

About RAV
RAV is a valued provider of specialist family and relationship services. Our vision is for positive, respectful, safe and fulfilling relationships for all Australians. Our objective is to relieve suffering, distress and helplessness and to provide high quality, accessible and effective services for people with complex relationship issues. Our services and programs, which are provided from 15 centres across Victoria, include counselling, family dispute resolution, relationship education, family violence services, mental health services, senior relationship services and professional training. As a community-based, not-for-profit organisation with no religious affiliations, our services are for all members of the community, regardless of religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, lifestyle choice, cultural background or economic circumstances. 

About the role
Reporting to the Senior Manager Southern and Eastern Melbourne, your responsibilities include delivering specific family violence group programs to men who have used violent and controlling behaviours towards family members.  
This role is part of the state government’s integrated framework of response to family violence, and compliance with the ‘No To Violence’ (NTV) minimum standards of quality practice. 

Skills, experience and qualifications:

  • Appropriate tertiary qualification in psychology, social work, or a related social science discipline.
  • A demonstrated understanding of the men’s behaviour change (MBC) process and the gendered nature of family violence and commitment to advocating for non-violence, and to living non-violently.
  • Commitment to enhancing the safety of women and children who have experienced male family violence.
  • Completion of ‘No to Violence’ graduate certificate in Male Behaviour Change Group Facilitation, Swinburne University and previous facilitating experience (preferable).
  • Previous experience in facilitation of MBC programs (advantageous).

This role is based out of RAV’s Cranbourne North Centre. However, delivery of the program may also be from other facilities in Melbourne’s south east. This position is a casual appointment. The successful candidate/s can expect that some or all of this work will be outside of normal office hours.

What we offer
You will receive a competitive remuneration package (salary range $51-$53 per hour inclusive of casual loading) plus superannuation. RAV is an ‘Employer of Choice’ in the community sector who provides best practice professional development, training, supervision and work and life balance conditions and benefits.
