Brief description:
Overseeing a small integrated service, consisting of a supervised lawyer, a community development worker, and a social worker, this role leads and champions ARC Justice's hospital place-based service, located at Maryborough District Health Service.

The role gives the opportunity to provide legal assistance across a wide range of legal issues including ARC Justice's key practice areas of family violence and child protection, as well as in other areas such as family law, general civil and minor crime. With the benefit of a social worker, there is the opportunity for the client to address the non-legal issues that often compound legal outcomes, leading to better client outcomes.

This role ensures proactive networking and community engagement, and the incumbent is responsible for thinking strategically and ensuring that project deliverables are implemented, advanced, and reported.

You will be joining an established and cohesive team that has a strong culture of collaboration and continuous improvement.
