About the role
A unique opportunity to apply your project skills to work for a peak body in the domestic and family violence sector.

The NSW Project Officer is responsible for the implementation and evaluation of the NSW Risk Safety and Support Framework (RSSF) project across the NSW Men’s Behaviour Change Network (MBCN). The Project Officer will implement recommendations from consultations with NTV staff and key NSW stakeholders; the MBCN; Education Centre Against Violence (ECAV) and Dept. of Communities and Justice (DCJ).

The project officer will support service providers to review their progress with implementation, troubleshoot issues and provide guidance. Feedback will be obtained from front-end users to evaluate the RSSF and make recommendations for future improvements. The project officer will encourage all providers to ensure that staff are trained and supported to safely use the Practice Guidance and Risk Assessment tools when engaging with users of family violence.
