Working Women's Centre WA Manager

Women’s Legal Service WA

Working Women’s Centres provide free information, advocacy, advice and assistance to women on workplace issues, including workplace entitlements and rights, gender issues, cultural diversity, discrimination and sexual harassment.

Women's Legal Service WA is implementing the inaugural Western Australian WWC in partnership with Circle Green, and who currently deliver the WA Workplace Respect Project. The WWC service model is holistic and trauma-informed, to ensure that issues in relation to the workplace are addressed in the context of women’s other needs.

The Working Women's Centre Manager will work with and lead a multi-skilled team employed across WLSWA and Circle Green to establish and co-ordinate WA’s WWC. The Manager will work to raise the profile of the WWC and that it becomes widely known for delivering quality and integrated assistance to women experiencing workplace issues and that leads to demonstrated improved outcomes for them. The WA WWC will develop its own identity separate to WLSWA and Circle Green, with the objective of being regarded as an informed and trusted source of expertise, advice and advocacy that contributes to systems change.

The Manager will undertake this work with directions and support from the Management Group, comprising Executive members of the partner agencies, and a sector based Reference Group convened for high level input and guidance. The Manager will also be responsible for operations of the service.

In addition to being a member of the WA WWC team, and reporting to the WWC Management Group for strategy, the Manager will join the WLSWA team and report to the WLSWA Chief Executive Officer for day-to-day matters, with a dotted line to Circle Green’s Principal Lawyer – Workplace for legal and staff co-ordination matters. The Social Workers and Client Service Officers will report to the Manager. The lawyers, project officer and marketing officer will have a dotted line to the Manager and co-locate with the WWC regularly.

Based in the Perth office, the Manager will likely be required to undertake some travel around regional WA.
