The Northern Community Legal Centre (NCLC) is a dynamic not-for-profit community legal centre operating in one of the fastest growing areas of Melbourne, with a catchment including the Moreland, Hume and Mitchell Shire Local Government Areas. The NCLC operates from a central office located in Broadmeadows with outreach clinics to other service areas. NCLC’s growing, passionate and skilled team of 24 staff, including 11 lawyers, provide advice, casework, community legal education, community development and administrative support to priority clients, including victims of family violence, refugees and the newly arrived, people diagnosed with a mental illness, young people aged 25 and under, and victims of elder abuse.
The recent expansion of two existing integrated family violence programs has led to the opportunity to appoint further positions.

This is a part time, 2 day per week position.
You have qualifications in teaching, social sciences, community work, social work or other relevant qualifications with a demonstrated knowledge of, and sensitivity to, victims/survivors of family violence and the family violence sector and a commitment to trauma-informed practice principles and family strengthening and empowerment models of practice.
Salary range up to $89,000 pro rata per annum SCHCADS Award (depending on experience), plus employer funded superannuation. In addition, generous salary packaging is available (including access to Accommodation and Meal Entertainment packaging).
Our office is based in Broadmeadows and NCLC services the council areas of Hume, Moreland and Mitchell. There may be the possibility to work flexibly from home as negotiated with the Partnerships & Community Development Manager.
