About us

The Magistrates' Court of Victoria (MCV) is a jurisdiction within the Court Services Victoria statutory authority and has a long history of providing justice for the people of Victoria in metropolitan and regional courts across the state.

The Court determines in excess of 300,000 cases per annum at 51 venues, equating to approximately 90 per cent of all cases that come before Victorian courts each year.  The Court aims to be an innovative, accessible and responsive court that provides quality services to the Victorian community.

The Integrated Counselling and Case Management (ICCM) Program is a new initiative in response to the Royal Commission into Family Violence that aims to ensure more perpetrators are accountable, engaged and connected, consistent with the whole of Victorian Government Family Violence Outcomes Framework.

The Family Violence Case Manager will take a trauma and evidenced-informed approach to working with clients.

  • The role offers excellent professional development, training and supervision.
  • An attractive salary is offered, commensurate with experience.
