An exciting opportunity has arisen to join one of Australia’s most successful public interest and social justice organisations. Justice Connect is a not-for-profit organisation with a vision of a fair and strong community in which people have a fair chance at a better life, the community sector is strong and vibrant and the legal/justice and non-legal social systems are fairer and better.

At Justice Connect, we believe everyone deserves a fair chance at a better life. That’s why we use the law to help people and community groups left behind by an unfair and complicated legal system. Whether it’s a single mother facing homelessness, a local community group struggling with overwhelming regulation or an older person dealing with family violence, real-life problems so often have legal solutions. That’s why we connect people with legal help. We use the power of the law to open up the legal system for those locked out of it, and to change the system where it is broken.

The key to our impact is the passionate commitment of our people. We hold ourselves to the highest standards, driven by a desire to deliver real improvements in the lives of the people and communities we help.

Justice Connect operates a range of different programs. These include a Public Interest Law program that links people needing help directly with pro bono lawyers. Justice Connect provides professional, efficient and effective system for the provision of pro bono legal services, both for clients and for pro bono lawyers. Justice Connect acts as a go-between for pro bono legal assistance between the community and the private legal profession. We coordinate pro bono (free) legal assistance for individuals through the Members’ Referral Program, Law Institute of Victoria Legal Assistance Scheme (LIVLAS) and the Victorian Bar Legal Assistance Scheme (VBLAS)

Clients who are eligible for assistance through any of these services are referred to a solicitor or barrister who will act for them on a pro bono basis. 

We are currently seeking an Administrator to support the Head of Pro Bono Partnerships, Manager of Public Interest Law, and the team. Specifically, the role supports the effective and efficient management of Public Interest Law files, the development of resources and the timely and accurate reporting of data.

If you are dynamic, a whizz with data, committed to access to justice and a highly accomplished administrator we would like to hear from you.

We welcome and encourage applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
