Information Systems Manager in Brisbane QLD
Lots of potential, business fundamentals lacking
The organisation really cares for the sector and knows its challenges. Management too inwardly focused; all power mostly held by a handful of executives. Fundamental changes must happen at board level if this organisation is to succeed. Strong perception of ‘founder syndrome’ permeating throughout the organisation. No clarity on objectives or deliverables. Most in management don’t have strong commercial experience and were internally promoted. Organisation lacks external expertise which is badly needed to drive progress internally.
Case Manager in Melbourne VIC
Supportive and passionate workplace
Great team to work with, always supportive and willing to help out. Always opportunities to learn and develop. Fulfilling and rewarding role with new challenges and no day the same.
Worst job i have ever had. Management are appalling. Not supportive in the slightest. Work against you not with you. Only care about money not about the young people. Worst company ever!
Youth Worker in Sydney NSW
Challenging and rewarding place to work
In this organisation you are working with some of the most trauma affected children and young people that are in the care of the Department. While some of them will lash out at times it is rewarding to get the 'little wins' like having a young person brush their teeth every day and to see the transition of them is what is most rewarding.The shifts can sometimes feel long but that is also what gives the work life balance. I like that most weeks I only work 2 or 3 days and that gives me time to spend with my family and do the things that I love. I can even choose to work a few extra shifts to build up my hours and have an extra week off and still get paid.They paid for my Cert IV in Child, Youth and Family Intervention which I need. No other employer pays for this.Whenever you have a bad shift there is always support available either internally or externally.If anyone wants to get into youth work this is a great organisation to get your start.
Senior Youth Worker/ Administration Officer in Brisbane QLD
Supportive and understanding of individual workers needa
Safe Places is a wonderful and friendly place to work. When on the floor I was always able to work around my kids school excursions and sports days and adjust my roster to fit in Dr.s appointments.
The hardest part of the job is walking away at the end of the day, however Safe Places has a 3 step support system to assist staff in this.
