Our vision is an Australia where women and their children live free from all forms of violence. Our role is to stop violence before it starts.

Our Watch recognises and values diversity among its staff and strongly encourages suitably qualified people from all backgrounds to apply, especially people who have a strong understanding of intersectionality either by working with diverse population groups or a lived experience.

About the role

This role will lead the implementation of the From Understanding to Action project. The Senior Practice Advisor will create partnerships with up to three Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander organisations across Australia to further primary prevention of violence against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women in line with Changing the picture’s evidence, principles and actions. The design of this project has been developed and informed by a national consultation process alongside the organisation’s continuing activity to implement Changing the picture and the Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan.

About you

You will be enthusiastic about social change, committed to social justice and gender equality, and have a strong understanding of the impact of intersecting forms of discrimination and disadvantage faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
