Brief description:

Kimberley Community Legal Services (KCLS) is one of Australia's leading remote civil law services, with eighteen staff working from offices in Broome and Kununurra, and delivering legal and family support services across six towns and a dozen remote Aboriginal communities.

KCLS is committed to helping clients achieve justice, in their individual issues and by improving the legal and systemic context in which client communities exist. They operate a holistic, client-centred reflective practice, blending legal and social work methodologies.

KCLS and the ANU College of Law have developed a close working partnership in recent years, encompassing on-site internships, a remote hotdesk, and a range of academic and practical collaborations.

This partnership now includes dedicated capacity for systemic advocacy to achieve Indigenous justice. 

In this role, you will work hand-in-hand with colleague Aboriginal organisations, as well as the ANU College of Law and other key partners, to drive meaningful changes. Drawing on the experiences of our clients and our workers, you will help Indigenous communities make the case for positive changes, and help shape the laws and systems in our region.

If you are a skilled community, campaigner, and coalition-builder, this is a rare opportunity to work on systemic advocacy from remote Australia.

This is a full-time, permanent position, based at KCLS' office in Broome or Kununurra.

The position description for this role is attached.
