First Nations Community Engagement Officer
First Nations Lawyer

Are you an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person who wants to help First Nations communities in Victoria to care for Country? We’re starting a new program that builds on our work with First Nations peoples, using environmental law to protect Aboriginal interests.

You will work closely with First Nations individuals, organisations and communities to understand their legal needs and work with them to overcome the legal barriers that stop First Nations peoples from exercising their caring for Country rights and obligations.

We are looking for a Community Engagement Officer and a Lawyer, both Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander designated positions. We will be looking for a balance of seniority and skills across the two roles, with one of the roles taking on the project leadership. Details are in the position descriptions below.
