Published on March 6, 2024

Applications close 19 April.

YFS has an opportunity for a male or non-binary identifying person to join our well-established Responsible Men facilitation team.

Responsible Men is a men’s behaviour change intervention program that explores beliefs that drive abusive behaviour.

If you’ve got what it takes to guide men to critically reflect on their behaviour, attitudes and beliefs, this could be the role for you. You will work alongside a male Senior Facilitator and receive ongoing practice supervision as part of our innovative, best-practice program.

Whether you are an experienced facilitator or are looking to gain facilitation experience in the domestic and family violence sector, this is an exciting opportunity to be part of a collaborative, supportive and respected team standing tall to end domestic violence in Logan.

The position offered will be dependent on your facilitation level and experience. We will invest in training and provide experience and mentoring for the right candidate to become a qualified Behaviour Change Facilitator.

To perform this role, it is essential that the person who holds the position be a male or non-binary person. It is therefore a genuine occupational requirement under section 25 of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 that applicants identify as male or non-binary.
