Senior Lawyer (5+ years PAE) – environmental enforcement 

Are you looking to use your legal skills to positively impact the lives of thousands of Victorians? We are seeking a lawyer with expertise in civil enforcement (e.g. WorkCover or environmental enforcement) with 5+ years’ post-admission legal experience to work with us to develop and run third party enforcement actions under Victoria’s new pollution laws.

This exciting role will see you work closely with local communities to develop ground-breaking strategic litigation. You will be at the forefront of testing these new laws to bring about genuine environmental change for communities who have borne the health burden of excessive pollution.

The position is full time for 12 months but 4 days per week will be considered for the right candidate. It may then be ongoing, subject to funding. This role is located in Carlton but other Victorian locations will be considered.

Grants Officer

Are you a grants and philanthropy specialist who is passionate about environmental justice?

We are looking for a Grant Officer with 3+ years’ experience to supercharge this work. Working within a collaborative team, you will assist in building sustainable income streams and reporting on impact to strengthen and resource ambitious legal campaigns.

The role will suit a highly skilled writer, researcher, and evaluator with strong knowledge of philanthropy and fundraising. You are a talented writer with a keen eye for detail and distilling complex issues and data into compelling funding applications for submission and subsequent reports and acquittals. You have a curiosity and passion for research and evaluation, are well organised, and can manage competing deadlines.

You may have honed your skills as a grant writer in an environmental or social justice organisation. But even if you have a different kind of experience, if you are a smart and creative person who is excited about connecting funders with high-impact work to create a better world, we would love to hear from you.

The position is ongoing and 4 days per week. You will be based in Melbourne at our head office with opportunities to work regularly from home. For the right candidate, who is prepared to travel occasionally, we will consider other locations in Australia.
