Team Leader- Women’s Resilience Centre(WRC)

Incredible opportunity to make your mark in a new service offering care, support and transforming lives,in this newly created Team Leader role.

  • Make a Difference and Transform Lives
  • Passionate Committed Team
  • Fulltime of Part-time Job Share

This is a unique and exciting opportunity for a Team Leader position in a scale-up social purpose organisation, with a mission to  transform and reset the lives of women and their families, experiencing domestic violence and trauma.

The Women’s Resilience Centre (WRC), established mid 2020, supports women emerging from domestic / family violence. Whilst many government and voluntary services provide housing and support, most are short-term and through desperation, many women and children return to unsafe environments perpetuating the tragic cycle of abuse.    

The WRC aims to fill this gap between short-term crisis care and longer-term recovery. Rather than fragmented shelters and support services, the Centre will offer holistic, trauma-informed support encompassing: 

  • Accommodation for up to twelve months in a secure environment 
  • A Resilience program to build and strengthen:  1. self-awareness, wellbeing and dignity;  2. capability around job, financial, legal, technology safety and life skills; 3. clinical support 
  • A Mentor program matching ‘survivors’ to ‘thrivers’ with lived-experience enabling survivors and their children to feel supported and empowered. 

In Australia there is a gap after crisis care providing medium term residential support. The Women’s Resilience Centre will offer both residential accommodation for up to 12 months and also a day program for day attendees. 
Participation in the resilience and mentoring programs is open to both residents and non-residence.
