About the role
Executive Officer, National Family Violence Prevention Legal Service Forum Secretariat (c/o Djirra) (full time, fixed term for 12 months) – Flexible location
The National Family Violence Prevention and Legal Services Forum (Forum) was formally established in May 2012. It is the national peak body comprising fourteen Family Violence Prevention and Legal Services (FVPLS) member organisations across Australia.
The FVPLSs deliver culturally-safe, specialist, legal and non-legal supports, as well as early intervention and prevention programs, for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people at risk of or experiencing family violence – predominantly women and their children. Nationally, over 95% of people accessing our services are women and children.
The goal of the Forum is to work in collaboration with the FVPLSs to increase access to justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander victim/survivors of family violence and sexual assault. The Forum enables the FVPLSs to form unified responses and input to the Government at a national level to address family violence against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
This dynamic role will contribute to increasing access to justice for Aboriginal victims/survivors of family violence and ensuring the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander victims/survivors of family violence shape social, legal and system reform across Australia.
The Executive Officer will work closely with relevant managers, the National Chairperson, Deputy Co-Chairs and Forum members.
The location for this position is flexible. For candidates residing in Victoria – 292 Hoddle Street, Abbotsford, Victoria, 3067 with some remote work required due to COVID-19.
