32 . Daybreak Coach Sydney

Team: Clinical

Hours: 7 am – 1 pm (Monday to Friday)

Location: Sydney HQ, with extensive opportunity to work remotely

Salary: $50,000 + superannuation + entitlements

Role: Daybreak Coach

We are a tech charity focused on building software that supports people to change their relationship with alcohol. We support the largest community in the country focused on this social problem and we continue to grow rapidly.

Our product, the Daybreak app, offers live text-based coaching alongside a supportive community and science-based exercises.

What is a Daybreak Coach?

A Daybreak Coach is a person that helps our members uncover and operationalise health related goals, build and maintain motivation, and identify barriers to overcome them; all of these with a focus on changing a member’s relationship with alcohol and enhancing wellbeing.

Daybreak Coaches are experienced and trained in our process of changing people’s relationship with alcohol. They do not limit conversations to alcohol consumption, but do not explore topics more suited to therapy or completely unrelated to alcohol behaviour change. When these topics come up, a Daybreak Coach will facilitate the right kind of support for our members.

Daybreak Coaches are not there to supplant crisis lines or clinics. When possible they will endeavour to direct members to this kind of support, but are not equipped to deliver it.

Responsibilities:

  • Maintain ongoing chat conversations with Daybreak members from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm Monday to Friday;
  • Respond to coaching requests in a timely manner;
  • Deliver proactive coaching invitations to members based on our pre-defined scenarios;
  • Administrate Daybreak “experiments” for our members;
  • Deliver feedback for continuous improvement;
  • Assist in the creation of scripts, guidelines, proactive scenarios and conversation prompts.

Suitable candidates will possess:

  • Regulatory framework requires a Certificate IV in Mental Health, Counseling, Drug and Alcohol, Social Work, or related fields;
  • At least 3 years experience in AOD behaviour change;
  • Excellent written english;
  • Organised and effective, capable of maintaining multiple clients in ongoing conversations;
  • Warmth and empathy;
  • Comfortable working at the fringe of mental health intervention technology.

Some of our benefits:

  • Be part of shaping the next chapter for Australia’s most unique charity;
  • Flexible, family friendly workplace;
  • Tax free salary options as a Health Promotion Charity (PBI) up to $15,900pa;
  • Generous remote working options;
  • Competitive, externally benchmarked salaries.
