Job no: 493125
Work type: Permanent (Full-Time)

Kids Helpline is Australia's only free and confidential, 24/7 online and phone counselling service for young people aged 5-25. Since 1991, Australia’s kids and young people have been turning to our professional, specialised counsellors, no matter who they are, where they live or what they want to talk about. Kids Helpline is a service of yourtown.

Online moderated peer to peer support is the new frontier for mental health because it responds to the changing habits of teens who are increasingly using social media to connect. My Circle creates a free, anonymous and private social networking space to support groups of young people aged 13-25 years who are experiencing similar problems, under the guidance of a qualified Moderator.

• provide debriefing, feedback and supervision to Moderators
• evaluate practice in line with yourtown and Kids Helpline Frameworks, benchmarks and priorities
• provide clinical moderating and operational training
• coordinate and oversee the creation and delivery of content for My Circle

About you:

You will be passionate, driven, professional, and aligned with yourtown values & our mission. Being open, confident, and agile in learning new systems or responding to technological change is important.
