Vacancies at the Commission: Leadership roles

For 40 years the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission has played an integral role in protecting and promoting the rights of Victorians, and has helped create a society that is fairer, more equal and more inclusive.

As an independent statutory agency, we have broad legislative functions under three state acts; the Equal Opportunity Act 2010, the Racial and Religious Tolerance Act 2001 and the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities.

Under a new Commissioner, unique opportunities now present to join and shape the Commission’s leadership team and future, working towards ensuring that the Commission’s work is strategic, has impact and resonates across Victoria.

We are seeking experienced, driven and insightful individuals who are committed to the protection of human rights and a more just society. Our ideal candidates will have relevant technical expertise but will also be clear and creative thinkers, change agents and people leaders.

The following positions reflect the Commission’s commitment to its legislative functions, strategic decision-making, enabling systems and processes, people leadership, diverse stakeholder relationships and understanding the impact of our work.

  • Head of Policy and Research: Lead key research, policy work and systemic discrimination projects
  • Head of Business Services: Lead strategic business service, including people and culture, information management and technology, finance, and business planning and performance
  • Head of Education and Engagement: Lead the development and delivery of human rights education and consultancy services and play a leading role in community engagement and capability building
  • Head of Legal and Dispute Resolution: Lead the technical and practical application of our laws through the provision of legal services and the Commission’s dispute resolution function

These are fantastic jobs with real potential to make a positive and enduring difference.
