Are you passionate about the rights and wellbeing of South Australia’s children and young people in care and youth detention? Would you like to lead our independent and committed team to advocate for the safety and best interests of these vulnerable young groups?
The South Australian Government is calling for applications for the role of Guardian for Children and Young People, which also holds the following positions within it:
- Training Centre Visitor
- Child and Young Person’s Visitor
- Youth Treatment Order Visitor.
It is important to note that a further role regarding the monitoring of the Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture (OPCAT) will likely be added in the near future, pending the creation of South Australian legislation.
In our blog last week announcing Penny’s upcoming departure, Penny described the multiple role position as ‘one of the hardest – but best – jobs’ she has ever had.
“I would strongly encourage any interested person to consider applying for this challenging but very rewarding position – to champion the rights of children and young people in care and detention. (But be warned! They will steal your heart.),” Penny said.
Expressions of interest close 31 May 2022.
