Key Position Capabilities
It is a requirement that a relevant Child Related Employment Screening be undertaken in accordance with the rural and remote work site location.
The Northern Territory Government legislation (the Care and Protection of Children Act 2007) now requires all individuals in child related employment or whose duties involve, or are likely to involve, contact with a child, to hold a valid ‘Working with Children Clearance’ (Ochre Card). These positions involve child related work and are assessed as requiring a Working with Children Clearance/Ochre Card.
For South Australia it is a requirement of this position that the incumbent maintain a current Child Related Employment Screening which is satisfactory to the University in accordance with the Children’s Protection Act 1993 (SA).
A National Police Certificate which is satisfactory to the University will be required by Flinders University before the successful applicant can commence in this position. If you have any queries in this regard, please raise them with the named contact person in this Position Description in the first instance.
