About the role

We are currently looking for a Youth Forensic Case Manager to join our team. In this role you will screen and assess youth who have offended and are affected by mental health or alcohol and drugs. You will facilitate access to services for young people and develop comprehensive treatment and care plans. This is important work and we can’t do it alone. A big part of this role is working with other agencies and providers to offer a wrap-around service to our young people.

You will be experienced in dealing with young people and you will be up to date with current research relating to mental health and also trends in youth offending. You will have a background in delivering comprehensive assessments and evidence based interventions for youth.

Whilst we are looking for experienced practitioners we recruit primarily for attitude. You will need to fit into a cohesive team culture of collaborative practice, openness, humour, and respect across disciplines and will engender confidence, trust and rapport with clients, their support networks and other agencies and service providers.
