Positions Vacant

Family Violence Information Sharing Advisor

DV Vic is currently recruiting for the new position of Family Violence Information Sharing Advisor to coordinate the implementation of the Family Violence Information Sharing Scheme for DV Vic Members and the specialist family violence sector in Victoria.

In 2016, the Royal Commission into Family Violence identified significant barriers that prevented information from being shared effectively compromising the safety of victims/survivors of family violence.

In response to the Commission’s findings, a family violence information sharing scheme has been created by the new Part 5A of the Family Violence Protection Act 2008.

The Family Violence Information Sharing Scheme came into effect from 26 February 2018. The Scheme broadens the authorised information sharing environment for two main aims: to ensure the safety and protection of those experiencing family violence and to hold perpetrators to account.

The Family Violence Information Sharing Advisor will have strong skills in project/strategic planning, and management, stakeholder engagement, and the capacity to respond and tailor advice and resources for the Scheme.  The successful candidate will have a proven track record of identifying, building and sustaining effective partnerships across multiple sectors.

The Family Violence Information Sharing Advisor is an exciting opportunity for a family violence practice expert to join the DV Vic team and lead the implementation of a critical Scheme for the specialist family violence sector.
