Group Facilitator

Are you ready to make a real impact in the community and contribute to a safer Victoria? Look no further! Join Amber Community in our mission to create positive change and enhance road safety across Metropolitan Melbourne and Regional Victoria.

Amber Community is looking for passionate and skilled individuals to fill positions as group facilitators in various locations across Victoria. We have opportunities available in the regional areas of Benalla, Colac, Echuca, Horsham, Mildura, Morwell, Portland, Shepparton, and Swan Hill. In Metro Melbourne, we are looking for someone specifically at our Frankston and Moorabbin venues and some new North West Metro Region venues.

Our programs are designed to work with individuals at risk of or with traffic-related offences, offering proactive and preventative solutions. Join us in addressing road safety and preventing harm on our roads.

The work is casual, and we are looking for people who can work after hours, predominately evenings (maybe some Saturdays, depending on location).

Your role

These positions require people to have experience working with groups that create conversations. As these programs are brief interventions, group facilitators must create a safe space quickly to allow participants to openly share their driving behaviour and work on ways to prevent risky driving.

This role will also include facilitating diverse groups within a restorative and narrative framework, and a strong experience working within therapeutic or psycho/educational programs is required.

Road trauma/safety programs aim to change attitudes and behaviour and reduce risky driving. They are based on restorative principles and a narrative framework using lived experience speakers with experiences of road incidents and presenters from the emergency services. The program aims are to:

  • Confront and evaluate participant belief systems regarding traffic-related offending
  • Bring about a shift from blame to choice
  • Assist participants in identifying and managing precursors to the offending
  • Provide peer discussion and problem-solving
  • Provide reality-based learning using lived experience speakers

As these positions are casual, they can be a value add to current work roles.

How to apply

Please call Chris Harrison on 0407 826 700 to talk further about the position.

Applicants must address the key accountabilities, meet the capabilities framework and legal requirements, have a recent CV, and send their application to Chris Harrison.

Closing date

The closing date for applications is Friday 8 March, so please apply as soon as possible. Training will be delivered online, and your regional coordinator will give support. Please note a statewide meeting for all facilitators will happen on Saturday 23 March, in Melbourne.
