Full-time or Part-time, based in Sydney.
This is an identified Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander position.
The Financial Rights Legal Centre is a not-for-profit community legal centre that specialises in helping people understand and enforce their financial rights, especially low income and otherwise marginalised or vulnerable consumers. We provide free and independent financial counselling, legal advice and representation to individuals about a broad range of financial issues.
The Aboriginal Service Coordinator will act as the primary point of contact for the Financial Rights Legal Centre in developing and maintaining relationships with key Aboriginal stakeholders. You will also attempt to cultivate greater engagement with Aboriginal communities by helping to generate, update and improve Financial Rights’ online resources to make them more accessible to Aboriginal communities, and by helping to develop and promote our Aboriginal Advice Service (AAS), a dedicated telephone advice line for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander callers and advocates working in their communities across Australia.
We will ask you to promote our services (including the AAS) in whichever ways will impact the most on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities, including some travel to regional and remote parts of Australia. At times you may be required to provide information and support over the telephone, in person and via other communications technologies to people coming to our service for assistance, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
