About Us

RANSW provides relationship support services for individuals, couples, families and communities. We are a not-for-profit Australian organisation with no religious affiliations. Our goal is to promote relationships that are safe, healthy and resilient.

About the role
There is never a dull day in the life of a Couple & Family Counsellor at Relationships Australia New South Wales (RANSW). In this pivotal role, you will be working closely with the team leader and clinicians to ensure the smooth running of the family counselling operation at our Parramatta Centre. You will engage and interact with a hugely diverse client group from young families, couples, singles and all age groups.

As well as day to day counselling, you’ll be given the support and assistance you need to facilitate sessions for families and undertake seminars and training. This role gives you the scope, autonomy and tools to make an unrivalled difference in the lives of the communities RANSW operates.

At RANSW we’re flexible. This is a part-time role at 3 days per week, paying as follows:

$44,202.60 – 49,397.40

The salary will be negotiated dependent on your experience and qualifications. In addition to the salary to the base salary, there is the employer’s contribution (9.5%) to superannuation, leave loading (17.5%) and we offer salary packaging (a tax-free exemption as a not for profit!)

We’re interested in hearing from people who possess a combination of the below

This is a demanding role and so experience is a key, you should be aiming for 5+ years as a counsellor and a certificate in training is really useful too, not essential

Previous experience working with families is hugely important and the art of dealing with young people and children especially dealing with families affected by domestic abuse

Resilience is a really big part of this position, for you to play a large role in the lives of so many people and colleagues alike

You’ll need to be able to work after hours on occasions, the nature of the role is that people’s problems don’t always sit well within a 9-5 office week

Teamwork is to work collaboratively with the team and in this role there will be plenty, you will also need to work autonomously and so you need to be comfortable in both environments

Sounds like you, great! Okay now then…
