Yalari is seeking a Student Support Officer, on a permanent part time basis for 15 hours per week to work with our scholarship students in Orange.  Please note that the majority of this work will be afterschool, evenings and weekends.  Reporting to Yalari Head Office on the Gold Coast you will work as part of a remote team and need availability to fly to Queensland five times a year, form a home office and travel to our partner school in Orange using your own vehicle. 

Yalari provides boarding school scholarships to young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from regional, rural and remote areas of Australia to study at leading independent boarding schools. It is our belief that education is the key to generational change and a brighter future for Indigenous children.  

Student Support Officers (SSO’s) work directly with scholarship recipients by forming supportive bonds with each child and by facilitating effective relationships between students, parents/guardians and partner schools.  

You will hold a minimum diploma-level qualification in Community Services, Teaching, Teaching Support or other relevant area of expertise along with demonstrated experience working with young people. Experience working specifically with Indigenous young people and families, young people in challenging situations, the independent school system and/or boarding schools would be advantageous to potential candidates.

Student Support Officers are integral to the success of our scholarship program. The right candidate will have proven communication, collaboration and negotiation skills and a can-do attitude.
