Financial Capability Worker

About Us:

Welcome to Lutheran Care. We are an energetic, forward thinking and values driven faith based not for profit organisation, providing support to people who need it most throughout South Australia and the Northern Territory. Current programs within the NT include financial literacy program, emergency relief and financial counselling, including town camps and servicing remote communities within the Central Australian area.

We currently have an exciting job opportunity for a full-time Financial Capability Worker within our Central Australian Money Hub Services, based in Alice Springs.

The Financial Capability Worker supports people to make informed choices about their financial position, build longer-term capabilities through budgeting and support clients manage their money.

You will require:

  • Completion of Financial Literacy Education Skill set or willingness to obtain.
  • Possess an understanding of financial issues as they relate to household budgets.
  • An understanding of Central Australian Indigenous culture and the ability to work with people from Indigenous communities.

  • Ability to work autonomously with minimal supervision.
  • Skilled at prioritising and multitasking.
