About the role

We are seeking experienced and committed people with an interest in achieving justice, empowerment and safety for some of Western Australia’s most vulnerable women.

As a specialist not-for-profit Community Legal Centre, WLSWA is the only standalone Women’s Legal Service in WA. It is a leader in the sector. WLSWA provides accessible legal services on a non-discriminatory and equitable basis to women facing disadvantage in Western Australia.

From a gender equality perspective, we work to redress inequalities in the legal system that adversely and disproportionately affect vulnerable women, particularly victim/survivors of domestic and family violence who need expert assistance in family law, child protection and compensation for criminal injuries. We advocate for clients and educate stakeholders about these issues, operating holistically to empower and assist women in the common legal issues that they face.

WLSWA embraces innovation in responding to emerging issues in the legal landscape and in pursuing social change and law reform to reduce inequalities, as well as promoting individual justice and safety.

We are seeking enthusiastic individuals who align with our vision, mission and values.
