Being a child protection practitioner for the Victorian Government means more than having a role in improving the future of hundreds 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.

Are you a child protection practitioner or an advanced child protection practitioner? To find out about the roles we are offering view the position descriptions. We are looking for practitioners for roles throughout Victoria (see our office locations).

Child protection work is rewarding and fulfilling but it's not an easy job. Practitioners need to be confident, resilient, aware individuals, who are open to change, and who can work collaboratively with families and other professionals.

The Department of Health & 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 Islander child protection practitioners.
