What We Do
Women’s Legal Service Tasmania works alongside women to improve their lives, working in a trauma-informed, integrated way that meets their legal, social and financial needs.
Our decisions, behaviour and activities are guided by integrity and compassion, and we use our influence to challenge injustice and inequity in order to make a positive difference for today, as well as for future generations of women.
You can help us.
We provide free and accessible legal advice, information and casework services that are responsive to the needs of women in a diverse community.
We currently have a position available for the provision of outreach legal advice and assistance, and the delivery of community legal education to women in rural and regional North-East Tasmania – if your values match ours, we invite you to apply to help us.
In return, we provide a flexible workplace with additional over award benefits like additional annual leave, paid parental leave, and the opportunity for salary packaging, as well as exceptional health and wellbeing support and access to dedicated professional development opportunities.
Specific grant funding for this position requires it to be full-time, however we are open to considering a job share arrangement with appropriate candidates, as we recognise that women with diverse responsibilities require flexibility in the workplace.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of the North East Outreach Solicitor position description (which includes the selection criteria), and to ask any questions you may have about the position. When you’re ready to apply, email through a current resume and a statement addressing the selection criteria.
We invite to you apply as soon as possible, with a closing date for this position of COB Thursday 15 February 2024.
All positions are advertised in accordance with an exemption for WLST to employ only women, granted by the Anti-Discrimination Commissioner, exemption number 21/06/059.
