Our people are at the core of the work we do and the difference we make to the lives of others. Our team members are passionate about ensuring our young people receive individualised support and are skilled at listening to understand, building trusting relationships and creating spaces free of judgement.
Our recruitment processes are centred on ensuring new team members are a cultural fit with our organisation, their prospective teams, and align with our overarching mission, vision and values.
Youturn recruits intrinsically motivated employees dedicated to finding the best outcome for the people in our care. Our team members make a real and sustainable difference in the communities in which we operate, and this is what drives us. Sharing wins and supporting one another on the journey is key.
We communicate, consult, and collaborate with our teams. Youturn understands that our differences make for creativity and great things come from the power of collaboration.
“Strong, happy, and healthy people equate to a productive, engaged workforce.”
Youturn believes the emotional and physical wellbeing of our employees is paramount. Our wellness partner Benestar provides 24/7 confidential support to all our staff, in addition to a huge amount of helpful information available to support with the daily stressors of life (particularly in COVID).
In particular our frontline child protection workers often face complex, highly stressful, emotionally and psychologically taxing situations and, at times this can result in exposure to trauma and aggressive behaviour from at-risk children and their families. Youturn’s Child Safety team is proactive in developing organisational strategies to foster the wellbeing of our frontline child protection workforce to help them navigate the stressors and manage, as well as prioritise their wellbeing and self-care.
