Your Story provides legal advice, information and assistance to people with disability, their families, carers, advocates and supporters wanting to engage with the Royal Commission. It is an independent, trauma-informed and culturally safe service delivered nationally using best practice standards and a human rights approach.

The role:

This is an exciting opportunity for a disability support worker, social worker or customer service professional to take on a demanding and rewarding role in Your Story.

As a Client Information Officer, you will provide verbal and written information to people – primarily over the telephone – about our services and how to engage with the Royal Commission. You will need to have, and to develop, skills in communicating with persons with complex needs, including:

  • people with profound physical, sensory, cognitive and psychological disabilities;
  • people with complex trauma and who are experiencing the effects of traumatic stress;
  • people who live in remote locations; and
  • people who come from non-English speaking or Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds.
Client Information Officers also support callers to participate in a trauma-informed, culturally sensitive and accessible legal service and identify any reasonable adjustments that may be required by Your Story to facilitate this. Client Information Officers also identify and facilitate referrals for callers to access legal and non-legal support throughout Australia.

This role requires completion of an extensive initial training program and participation in ongoing training and development to enhance your customer service and communication skills, your knowledge of trauma-informed and culturally sensitive service delivery and to improve your knowledge of the law and Australia's legal system.
