Territory Families provides a whole-of-life approach to children and family support services through a diverse, yet connected, range of frontline delivery and advocacy functions.

With the portfolios of child protection, domestic and family violence and youth justice services in a single agency, we have an opportunity to work within a broad framework to deliver early intervention and prevention outcomes.

We recognise the over-representation of Aboriginal children in both the child protection and youth justice systems and are developing culturally considerate programs and services with culturally competent staff to tackle that issue.

A key goal of our strategic plan for the next three years is recruiting new, and developing existing, Aboriginal staff across all levels within Territory Families.

We have an opportunity to do things differently - to keep kids on track and to create the pathways that prevent vulnerable children and young people going into care and coming into contact with the youth justice system.

The Northern Territory presents a unique and challenging environment in which to live and work.

Jobs on offer

Territory Families is recruiting experienced professionals in child protection, youth and family support, carer support and placements.

We are offering permanent jobs in these fields, especially in our major regional centres.

We are looking for resilient and passionate people who are willing to travel and work with Aboriginal families and services to deliver quality outcomes for children and families in remote and urban centres.

In return for your skills and energy, you will be offered support to grow and develop your career, excellent progression opportunities, the chance to make an immediate impact in the communities you service, and you will be rewarded with some of the best salary and conditions in the country.

The challenges are real, and so are the opportunities to make a difference.
