Senior Child Protection Practitioners - Non Supervisory and Supervisory, Outer Gippsland

Being a child protection practitioner for the Victorian Government means more than having a role in improving the future of children and their families. It’s about working with people who share a common goal and, who together, achieve positive results through all aspects of their work, every single day.

The Department of Health and Human Services is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people employed with the department. In particular, our focus is on increasing the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island child protection practitioners. If you are an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander applicant, or if you have a disability, and require advice and support with the recruitment process, contact our Diversity Unit on DiversityInclusion@dhhs.vic.gov.au.
