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.

Media and communications coordinator

Are you a media and communications specialist who is passionate about climate, nature and First Nations justice? We’re looking for a Media and Communications Coordinator with 3+ years experience to create ambitious media strategies that cut through.

Working in a collaborative and multidisciplinary team, this exciting role will develop and deliver traditional and new media strategies across all EJA program areas.

With an eye for a good story, you’ll use your media skills and relationships to amplify stories of First Nations communities using the law to fight for Country and Culture. You’ll pitch stories about climate litigation and the need for laws that actually protect nature. You might background journos on outrageous FOI documents about shady environmental decision making. You might create a sophisticated media strategy for a game-changing environmental justice campaign led by fossil fuel communities, or support clients and spokespeople to find their voices and share their experiences.

This ongoing position is full time but 4 days per week will be considered for the right candidate. This role is based in Melbourne but other Australian locations will be considered.

We will interview candidates as applications come in so do not delay, apply now!
