About us

On 20 October 2018, the Victorian Government made a commitment to establish a restorative engagement and redress scheme for Victoria Police employees who had experienced workplace sex discrimination and/or harassment.

The Scheme opened on 12 December 2019 and is available to former and current employees of Victoria Police.

The Scheme offers a range of options for eligible participants, including:

  • access to counselling and wellbeing services
  • participation in a restorative engagement process
  • financial redress payments.

The Scheme is administered by the Redress Design business unit within the Department of Justice and Community Safety. Redress Design has five key areas: an Executive Office, Support Services, Restorative Engagement, Assessments, and Operations and Strategy.

  • developing and review key systems, procedures, policies, and specifications to support the operations of the Scheme
  • leading the development and implementation of robust policies and procedures that are based on trauma informed principles and a case management model that offers flexible and responsive assistance.

The role also requires speaking with participants of the Scheme in a sensitive and trauma-informed manner as well as dealing with material that can be challenging and distressing and will best suit a candidate who is resilient and empathetic.

  • recent demonstrable experience in a leadership role
  • an ability to develop and articulate the strategic framework for the delivery of the Scheme's support services
