These positions will form part of a team consisting of family violence and migration lawyers, community engagement workers, and a project coordinator.

NCLC’s growing, passionate and skilled team of 23 staff, including 11 lawyers, provide advice, casework, community legal education, community development and administrative support to priority clients, including victims of family violence.


You are a senior lawyer with extensive litigation and casework experience in child protection and/or family law and want to make a difference to the lives of women seeking safety.


Salary range up to $97,000 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).
