Positions Vacant

Personal Safety Initiative (PSI) Statewide Coordinator

In April 2017, the statewide rollout of the Personal Safety Initiative (PSI) was announced by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to assist women and children who have experienced family violence to remain in their homes.

Supported by intensive case management at a regional level, the Initiative will allow women and children who have experienced family violence to have access to a Personal Safety Device, safety audits by security specialists, installation of personal or home safety technologies; and 24/7 monitoring and support.

Working closely with DV Vic management, DHHS and Victoria Police, the Personal Safety Initiative (PSI) Statewide Coordinator will oversee the roll out and will be responsible for implementing and supporting the governance, systems and administration of the Initiative. The Coordinator will develop, foster and maintain strong working relationships with Regional Personal Safety Coordinators, key internal and external stakeholders and will have a strong capacity for self-direction and problem solving.

The successful candidate will have a high level of technical expertise in family violence practice responses including an understanding of the assessment of risk. You will have a comprehensive understanding of the service system, complexity and impact of family violence on women, children and the broader community.

The PSI Statewide Coordinator is an exciting opportunity for a family violence practice expert to help strengthen Victoria’s response to high risk family violence.
