About the Organisation

Organisation Name : knowmore
knowmore was established in 2013 as an independent service to give free legal advice and information to people on the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. Whilst the Royal Commission has recently come to a close, knowmore will continue to assist survivors of child sexual abuse by providing them with information and advice about the justice or redress options that may be available to them.

Over the next few months, knowmore will be on a journey to reposition itself to meet our clients’ ongoing needs.

As such, we are looking for an HR Manager with experience in change management, workforce planning and organisational design to advise our Executive Team and work closely with our Management Team to navigate this transition period. This role will be based in Sydney and will form part of the Operations Team. A diverse background in the HR profession would be ideal and additional resources can be made available as part of the transition project, subject to ongoing funding.
