Working with OCF
OCF staff face many challenges. Their focus is the care and protection of children at risk of harm, and the improvement of individual and family wellbeing.
Living in the Territory
The Territory boasts world famous national parks and reserves; however, it is the diversity of the people that is one of our greatest attractions.
OCF have positions located across the NT. We require people that are committed to ensuring the imperative task of child protection is undertaken and who aren’t afraid of hard work.
International applicants are encouraged to apply. A range of entitlements are on offer, including relocation, flights and vehicle hire.
The Office of Children and Families (OCF) delivers services to a population of approximately
220 000 people in an area covering more than 1.3 million square kilometres. The Office of Children and Families is the provider of statutory child protection services in the Northern Territory (NT) and consists of five program areas:
• Regional Services
• Corporate Services
• Social Inclusion Policy and Program Development
• Care and Protection Policy and Program Development
• Strategic Policy and Performance
We provide services to enhance the protection of children at risk of harm, and support families, young people and communities in strengthening and maintaining social cohesion. Over the past five years the Office has undertaken a range of reforms in various areas, driven by a number of report recommendations. All reforms are undertaken with the express purpose of improving the provision of, and access to, services for families and children. The most recent inquiry is the Inquiry into the Child Protection System in the Northern Territory 2010.
We are currently recruiting a range of skilled staff across the NT to ensure that our commitment to child protection can be met. An understanding of Aboriginal culture is essential, as staff will be working with children, young people and families in both urban and remote regions.
