Instructional Designer

Domestic Violence Victoria

Domestic Violence Victoria and Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria

  • Unique opportunity to support the translation of specialised non-accredited training into new modes of delivery
  • Leverage trends and best practice principles in education and training to inform DV Vic/DVRCV’s work
  • Continuous improvement mindset

In 2021, Domestic Violence Victoria (DV Vic) and the Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria (DVRCV) are merging to become a new entity. This merger brings the peak body for Victoria’s specialist family violence services supporting victim survivors together with the state’s only specialist family violence Registered Training Organisation, combining our strength, capacity and resources for greater impact.

Our work is underpinned by intersectional feminism – as set out in the Code of Practice: Principles and Standards for Specialist Family Violence Services for Victim-Survivors – informed by an understanding of the gendered nature of violence and with the interests of all victim survivors at the heart of everything we do.

We apply a specialist lens across primary prevention, early intervention, response and recovery to:

  1. Develop practice and support workforces
  2. Strengthen and connect organisations, sectors and systems
  3. Build momentum for social change
  4. Build a strong peak organisation

We are in the process of re-branding the merged organisation to ensure a truly collaborative and equal new peak body. DV Vic and DVRCV is committed to providing flexible and accessible working arrangements for all. This includes people with a disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, culturally, religiously and linguistically diverse people, young people, older people, women, and gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and gender diverse, intersex or queer people. We recognise the strength and value in diversity, remain open to new approaches and actively foster an inclusive workplace that celebrates the contribution made by all our people.


Working in the Sector Development Unit, the Instructional Designer will support the delivery of an internal research action pilot as well as adaptation of DV Vic/DVRCV’s face to face training offerings across the prevention to response continuum to the online learning environment.

Key to the success of this role will be using design thinking principles to problem solve the required adaptations to online learning. The role will also work collaboratively to support organisational continuous improvement and explore opportunities for a future focused blended learning approach.

This is a new role for DV Vic/DVRCV and we’re looking for an experienced instructional designer with a track record in delivering high quality training packages.
