    How serious are you guys with a minimum of three years of experience? Would you hire a graduate who has experience but hasn’t been here for long?

      Hi Viyom, Sorry for the late reply, and thanks for your question. It depends on the job description, but in this case we were looking for a candidate with three years or equivalent experience. It’s not necessary for that experience to be in Australia and if women feel that they are the right fit for the role, we always encourage them to contact us to discuss it and to apply if they are interested.

    Hi , I am very interested in this job, but do not come from a multicultural background.
    I am currently working in government in the Prevention of FV so definitely have the skills you are looking for, but wonder if my background is an issue?

      Dear Julienne,

      Apologies for not replying sooner, but we hope that you were able to get in touch with our office and received a more timely reply. We encourage all women to apply to work with us and we value diverse skills and experience. As part of our recruitment process, we view a candidate’s lived experience of being from a migrant or refugee background as extremely beneficial to working in our organisation, but it is of course not our only consideration.
