Working closely with the MSW Field Education Subject Coordinators, the Field Education Placement Officer ensures that all administrative tasks associated with running social work placements are undertaken in accordance with School requirements and consistent with Faculty and University policy and procedure.

The Field Education Placement Officer works to support the recruitment of placements and to maintain existing placement relationships by proactively and sensitively working to support the placement needs of the discipline and the host service. The role provides administrative support to students whilst on placement, often trouble-shooting local placement issues by working with the placement organisation and field educators.

A high degree of judgment and discretion is required for this position as it is dealing with students placed in settings remote from campus working directly with individuals, families, groups and communities. You will embody the Faculty values of Respect, Accountability, Integrity, Compassion and Collaboration by acting in the best interest of your employer. You will display service excellence through striving to deliver beyond expectations, taking ownership and working collaboratively as one team through connecting with people and building relationships both in your workplace and with key external stakeholders.

The role has a significant impact on the reputation of the School with field education placement host partners and therefore the future availability of placements in a competitive placement environment. This position works in coordination and alignment with other clinical placement officers across the School of Health Sciences. The role reports to the Academic Programs Manager, School of Health Sciences.
