Employment Opportunity - Leadership Program Coordinator

This role is an exciting opportunity to participate in a genuinely peer-centred project, working closely with women who have been criminalised and incarcerated to achieve the project’s objectives. The role involves working directly with criminalised women and other peer-led organisations to drive systemic change across some of Victoria’s most pressing social justice issues, including women’s over-incarceration, Victoria’s housing crisis, family violence and significant failures in the mental health system. With input from women with lived experience, the coordinator will also develop and document best-practice for working with peers and provide guidance and advice to other organisations doing peer-led work.
