The Organisation
The Federation of Community Legal Centres (Victoria) Inc is the peak body for community legal centres (CLCs) across Victoria.

Community legal centres are independent, not for profit community organisations. They provide free lawyers, social workers and legal education to the public, especially to people who can’t afford a lawyer, or who are facing injustice or inequality because of their race, gender, sexuality, class, religion or other identity. They fight for human rights, equality and environmental protection.

The consultative nature of the role will see you collaborate with a diverse range of stakeholders whilst managing all aspects of the project to a strict time line.  You will:

  • Form and lead a working group of lawyers to develop business processes
  • Prepare initial definitions of the data standards manual
  • Coordinate consultations with the broader CLC sector
  • Liaise with interstate stakeholders and the National Peak Body (NACLC)
  • Produce a business process manual and develop training program materials
  • Roll out ‘train the trainer’ training to the CLC sector



Skills Required

You are a project manager with demonstrated experience interpreting data standards, applying data standards to complex databases and developing and running a training program.  Ideally you have experience in a similar role for a member based organisation.  Additionally you can demonstrate:

  • An ability to plan, prioritise and meet project outcomes
  • Superior time management skills in a fast paced environment with changing priorities
  • Expertise in stakeholder engagement; ability to consult and collaborate diplomatically
