Are you Gippsland Youth Space’s new Youth Program Officer?

In an exciting new opportunity for East Gippsland, we are searching for a skilled Youth Program Officer to join our team in the delivery of meaningful and rewarding programs and activities for young people in the region.

This unique role would be ideal for a parent looking for flexibility or an early career professional looking for a great progression opportunity.

What does the Program Officer do?

4 days a week you’ll be trusted to deliver a range of activities, events, and programs in partnership with East Gippsland youth and partner organisations. From an afternoon BBQ, to an overnight camp, there will be a wide range of opportunities to enable, empower and mentor young people. 

You’ll be supported by a fantastic team of like minded and passionate people across Gippsland, and provided opportunities for professional training and personal growth. You’ll be invited to participate in occasional meetings elsewhere in Gippsland, but benefit from an East Gippsland focus and work base, networks and relationships with local youth and organisations.

The successful applicants will work in a flexible and mobile capacity meaning, you will be out and about on our fully equipped buses going into communities or heading directly into local schools running a range of programs. You will be equipped with a work computer allowing you to work remotely and from home when necessary and will meet at locations in either Bairnsdale, Sale or Morwell when in training.

  • Bus is located at Lakes Entrance for the start and end of shift, with remote working outside of program activities
