Because parenthood isn’t always peachy…

Current Opportunities

We currently have the following positions available:

PLEASE NOTE:  We are unable to accept applications if you are currently accessing Peach Tree services, or have done so during the past 12 months.

PROGRAM CO-ORDINATOR

Part time, 24 hours per week

The Program Coordinator coordinates the delivery and administration of our internal and external peer-led programs, including the Sunshine Parenting Program (SPP), Connecting Parents to Pathways Program (CPTP), PeerZone, and Circle of Security Parenting. This role is ideally suited to a self-motivated individual willing to take ownership of the role, while working within a dynamic, supportive team committed to making a meaningful contribution to Peach Tree’s community work.

The Program Coordinator supervises a small team of PMH Peer Workers (Programs) and works closely with the Service Coordinator. Peach Tree’s primary service locations are in North Brisbane, South Brisbane, and Moreton Bay regions, with outreach to the West Moreton Darling Downs. This position works primarily in North Brisbane but may be required to travel to other service locations and attend meetings offsite, so own transport is essential. The Program Coordinator will be expected to work reasonable additional hours as required to meet reporting timeframes, support staff leave, attend key stakeholder meetings, etc., so flexibility is required.

Peach Tree is an Equal Employment Opportunity employer and committed to engaging a diverse workforce. We strongly encourage applications from people with an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander background, people with disability, and people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds.

To apply for this position, please email your CV and a letter of suitability to ceo@peachtree.org.au.

PEER WORKER (Dads Branch) role x 1

–  Use your Lived Experience of perinatal mental health concerns to help other parents
–  Casual, approx. 10 hours per week initially plus training
–  Professional development opportunities

We’re looking for a Peer Worker to join our growing peer-led community mental health services for fathers and partners.

The position is casual (approx. 10 hours per week initially), making them the perfect option for stay-at-home or return-to-work parents. We need (and welcome) your expertise!

EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST / Perinatal Mental Health (PMH) Peer Workers

–  Use your Lived Experience of perinatal mental health concerns to help other parents
–  Casual, approx. 10 hours per week initially plus training
–  Professional development opportunities

Being a PMH Peer Worker at Peach Tree means using your lived experience of perinatal mental health challenges and your story of hope, resilience, and re(dis)covery to support other parents in connecting and sharing their experiences openly. Our PMH Peer Workers ‘hold space’ for parents to find validation and feel heard, without judgement, advice, or stigma.

Our PMH Peer Workers come from very different professional backgrounds / events coordination, yoga teaching, book editing, floristry, project management, massage therapy, to name a few / with a shared purpose to help expecting and new parents who are finding parenthood isn’t as ‘peachy’ as they’d hoped or expected.

If you’re now past the whirlwind that is very early parenthood and feel you’re in the ‘re(dis)covered’ stage of your lived experience, you might consider becoming a PMH Peer Worker with Peach Tree – we’d love to hear from you!  Please complete the Expression of Interest form below so we can notify you of upcoming opportunities.  Alternatively, simply click on the role description button for more information.
