Due to COVID-19 the way we work and interact has been impacted. KCLC places a high importance on the safety, health and wellbeing of all staff, clients and community. Therefore the way in which we recruit, onboard and induct has changed to adapt to our current environment.
We adhere to all guidance provided by the Department of Health (DOH).
We rely on our volunteers to deliver essential services that support Victorians, and, in some cases, our volunteers rely on us: for rewarding experiences, for a powerful sense of community, and for tangible personal fulfilment. View our available volunteer positions.
Learning and development
At KCLC, we are committed to developing a learning environment in which our staff and volunteers can excel and grow professionally. This ensures that our services have a positive impact on the lives of the children, young people, families and communities that we work with.
Key support programs:
Employee Assistance Program
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides employees and their families with access to professional and confidential counselling services.
The EAP can be used to help support staff and their families through a work or personal issue that may be impacting their health or wellbeing. The program is completely confidential. KCLC provides a generous level of EAP Support: up to 3 sessions on any matter for staff and their families.
While working with our clients can be an incredibly rewarding experience, it can also be challenging. This is why KCLC requires that staff involved in the provision of services directly to children, young people, adults and families have regular supervision sessions with their direct manager.
The quality of supervision is central to providing high standards of professional service and client outcomes. Supervision is an essential part of staff learning the knowledge and skill base required to undertake their role.
Salary packaging allows you to pay for certain expenses before tax is taken out of earnings. This reduces the amount of tax paid, helping staff make the most of their income.
Currently, you can package up to the allowable maximum of $15,900 each Fringe Benefit Tax year. For further details regarding Salary Packaging go to https://www.accesspay.com.au/
