About the Role
The Victorian Government has provided funding to WDV as part of the Free from Violence – Women’s Workforce Capacity Building investment for the women’s health sector to work with regional, local-level partners – such as local government, sporting groups and local businesses – in the primary prevention of violence against women (PVAW). This funding announcement coincided with the release of the Victorian Government’s First Action Plan under its strategy to prevent family violence and all forms of violence against women – Free from Violence.
The Victorian strategy on violence prevention, Free from Violence, notes that while violence against women and family violence have their origins in gender inequality and discrimination, “inequalities resulting in racism, ageism, ableism and heterosexism can also on their own or in combination, influence patters of violence perpetrated in society”.

Hours are 60.8 hours per fortnight (0.8 FTE).
Salary is $70,386 – 78,092 per annum pro rata + superannuation.
