Jobs & Volunteers

Job Opportunities

Client Intake Supervisor (part-time, 12-month contract): RLC is looking for a dynamic individual to assist people experiencing vulnerability to navigate the legal assistance sector, and to train and mentor law students in client intake.

Volunteer 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 40 years later, volunteers still play an integral role in RLC's work. We simply could not provide our services to the community without the help of our volunteer solicitors, legal assistants, practical legal training students, and pro bono partners and firms.

  • Two PLT positions available for immediate start, working remotely 2-3 days per week under the supervision of RLC's International Student Legal Service NSW. Expressions of interest for PLT placements with other practice areas are also open (dates TBA).
  • Volunteer Solicitors: We are not engaging volunteers solicitors at this time, but we encourage expressions of interest. Due to the high number of applications we receive, we will only contact you should a suitable opportunity arise.
  • Volunteer Legal AssistantsClick for details of the role and all intakes. 
  • University of Sydney Social Justice Legal Clinic: Enrol in Social Justice to be a Volunteer Legal Assistant, and earn course credit.
  • Communications Placement: Applications currently closed. Assist RLC's community education staff with video editing and other tasks, 4 hours per week, for six months.  

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 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.
