Who are we
The statement ‘Free to be me’ embodies the objectives of the Department of Health and Human Service’s Diversity and Inclusion Unit. We are committed to a workplace that embraces the individual differences of all our employees and a culture where everyone feels safe and valued. We recognise that each person brings an array of qualities, knowledge and skills to our workplace and that diverse teams are better able to solve complex problems and exhibit a higher level of creativity and a broader thought process.
More about us
The department provides careers across different human services delivery roles including child protection, disability or housing support and in policy and program roles. Flexible working arrangements – All roles flex – assist all employees to balance their work responsibilities, family and other personal commitments and include part time; working from home, flexible start and finish; and purchased leave. The department takes a broad view of the causes of ill health, the drivers of good health, the social and economic context in which people live, and of the incidence and experience of vulnerability. This allows us to place people at the heart of policy-making, service design and delivery.
Who we are looking for
The department is committed to a diverse and inclusive workforce that is reflective of the Victorian community. This commitment is critical because we know that services are best delivered and better outcomes are achieved when our workforce is representative of the whole community. Our values guide the work and behaviours of staff within the department:
- We are respectful
- We have integrity
- We collaborate
- We care for people, families and communities
- We are accountable
- We are innovative.
