Employment Opportunities (paid)
Redfern Legal Centre currently has three exciting positions available within its Sydney Women’s Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Service.
Waverley Local Coordination Point
The Sydney WDVCAS runs the Waverley Local Coordination Point (LCP) which receives automatic referrals from Police in the Waverley area each time they attend an incident of domestic violence. The program also coordinates and monitors Safety Action Meetings in which members develop safety plans for victims at serious threat of death, disability or injury as a result of domestic and family violence. The LCP is staffed by two positions, the Safety Action Meeting Coordinator and the LCP Intake and Referral Officer:
Applications for all three positions close Monday 23 May 2016 at 9am.
Please ensure you read all relevant documentation for each position before submitting an application.
Volunteer Program Opportunities
Redfern Legal Centre opened its doors in 1977 with one paid staff member, barely any money and lots of volunteers with experience, enthusiasm, passion, commitment and a vision for the provision of free legal advice to the community. Over 30 years later volunteers still play an integral role in RLC's work. We simply could not provide the service to the community we do without the help of our volunteer solicitors, legal assistants, practical legal training students, and pro bono partners and firms.
Volunteer Legal Assistants - applications close 30 May, 2016.
Fundraising Volunteer - applications close 31 May, 2016.
PLT Placement (volunteer) - Housing and Homelessness - applications close 10 June, 2016.

Volunteer Solicitors - currently accepting applications.
Redfern Legal Centre supports Equal Employment Opportunity principles in the selection of volunteers and staff. If you require some adjustment to the workplace to enable you to meet the selection criteria, please contact the Communications & Volunteer Manager on 9698 7277 or firstname.lastname@example.org for a confidential discussion of what can be done to accommodate your request.
Please let us know if there is anything about you that may cause an issue to arise under the Legal Profession Uniform Law Act (NSW) No 16a. For instance, please note section 121 of Legal Profession Uniform Law (disqualification or conviction for serious offence) and any necessary approvals required.
