Tenants Victoria is the peak body for renters in our state and serves as Victoria’s leading specialist tenancy community legal centre. We are a respected and influential advocate for social change, working to improve conditions for people who rent their homes and experience hardship and or disadvantage.
We believe that safe, secure, and affordable housing is an essential service and human right. Through our advice line, legal casework, law reform work, training, and community outreach activities, we support individual renters and community organisations. We also campaign for policy, procedural, and legislative change. Amid a rental crisis, this is a significant time to join our dynamic team and help support Victorian renters facing housing challenges across the breadth of our state.
As Policy Adviser, you will collaborate with the Director of Community Engagement and the Director of Client Services to support the development and delivery of specific policy projects that seek to make lasting change for renters. The successful candidate will prepare public submissions and reports to government as well as synthesise research to help drive policy change and shape the organisation’s key advocacy. Strong social justice values will inform your work and your stakeholder skills will enable you to engage with internal and external stakeholders and help shape policy recommendations to address systemic issues facing Victorian renters.
You will apply your experience in research, policy analysis and policy writing to improve outcomes for Victoria renters. You will use your excellent communication skills, and sound analytical and problem-solving abilities to develop a suite of policy products for the organisation’s advocacy.
