Reporting to the Communications Manager, the Communications Officer will provide high-level communications on a diverse range of projects across WLSV, and contribute to the development and implementation of our communications strategies.
This is a full time or part-time position, fixed term for 12 months – with a possibility of extension.
Women’s Legal Service Victoria (WLSV) relies upon an exception under the Equal Opportunity Act to employ women only.
This position would suit a communications all-rounder who is comfortable juggling a range of tasks from across the organisation. You are creative, motivated and have the people skills to draw out the information you need from a diverse range of staff. You have strong attention to detail, can prioritise tasks and are skilled at ‘translating’ more complex information into plain English. You love working as part of a team and collaborating with others, but can also work at a high level independently, requiring minimal supervision.
WLSV is a highly respected not-for-profit organisation which has been providing free legal services to women since 1982. We work with, and for women experiencing particular disadvantage to address legal issues arising from relationship breakdown or violence. We use our experience to inform our policy, law reform and education work.
WLSV provides legal services within a multi-disciplinary and trauma-informed practice in family law, family violence and child protection. Our model incorporates social work and financial counselling to provide wrap-around support to the most vulnerable and at-risk clients.
We are passionate, collaborative and solutions-focused. We are committed to our mission to build a gender equitable country. We work alongside women experiencing disadvantage, to promote their rights to live free from violence, and make informed choices about their relationships.
We work in a way that is woman-focused, engaging and supporting the whole person and appreciating the complexity of her situation. It is through a feminist lens that we deliver high-quality services to our clients and support each other as colleagues.
We offer our staff:
WLSV is committed to equal opportunity and diversity and promotes an organisational environment where individuals are treated with fairness, respect, equality and dignity. To deliver the best outcomes for our clients we want a team that reflects the diverse community that we serve, recognising the skills, knowledge and experience a diverse staff group brings to our organisation.
