POSITION SUMMARY:

The Administration Officer is a position in each Orange Door location (Support and Safety Hub). The position will be involved in the day-to-day administration for the Hubs, as well as providing wide ranging secretariat and support functions. The position has key functions in supporting service access and the Hub workforce, as well as providing a point of contact for key stakeholders from a diverse range of community service organisations, government, private and public sectors.

Family Safety Victoria is the first government agency dedicated to ending family violence. It will deliver key initiatives to help protect, support and identify risk for those impacted by family violence and hold perpetrators to account. We also coordinate access to services that support vulnerable children and families.

We are working across government and with our partners in the family violence, family services and broader social services sectors to transform services and introduce new practices to make it easier for people to get the help, protection, and support they need.

By leading collaboration and engagement for Victoria's family violence response we will make sure victim survivors remain at the heart of these changes, and that services are safe, accessible and culturally appropriate.

At Family Safety Victoria, everything we do begins with a deep understanding of people's lived experiences and the specialist expertise of the family violence, family services and broader social services sectors.

All jobs can be worked flexibly and we encourage job applications from Aboriginal people, people with disabilities, LGBTI and people from culturally diverse backgrounds.
