Position Details

Respect Victoria was established as a Statutory Authority under the Prevention of Family Violence Act 2018 (the Act) on 4 October 2018. Respect Victoria, by its establishment fulfils Recommendation 188 of the Royal Commission into Family Violence. Respect Victoria will deliver on the commitments legislated in the Act and the objectives outlined in Free from Violence: Victoria's strategy to prevent family violence and all forms of violence against women. Respect Victoria is governed and led by a skills-based Board and Chief Executive Officer.

Respect Victoria is focused on the prevention of all forms of family violence and violence against women. Prevention means stopping violence before it starts, by changing the norms, practices and structures that allow it to happen.

Respect Victoria provides leadership in the prevention of all forms of family violence and violence against women, through advice on policy and program reform to improve the way Government, organisations and the community prevent family violence. This includes setting standards, building and testing outcomes, advising government on the suitability of funding, and communicating, raising awareness, and engaging with the community on family violence prevention.

Respect Victoria's key functions, as outlined in the Act are to:

  • Provide advice to the Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence to assist in policy and decision making, and the suitability of funding for family violence prevention programs
  • Monitor, assess and endorse programs carried out by organisations, and support organisations with advice, information and support
  • Promote awareness in the community of programs, activities and campaigns, including behavioural change campaigns and the Victoria against Violence campaign
  • Undertake, procure, and disseminate research
  • Report on trends in family violence prevention.

The Manager, Monitoring, Evaluation and Translation is an important new role in Respect Victoria responsible for leading the strategic research and evaluation structures and systems and priorities for Respect Victoria, focussed on monitoring, evaluation and translation.

Research indicates that family violence and violence against women is preventable if we work together as a community to address the underlying drivers that create the conditions in which all forms of family violence and violence against women occur.

The Manager, Monitoring, Evaluation and Translation will lead engagement with government, industries, organisations and community to refine and implement an effective monitoring and evaluation platform for primary prevention of family violence and violence against women, to drive uptake of evidence informed primary prevention policy, programming and practice evidence, to enable us prevent family violence and violence against women sooner.

The Manager, Monitoring, Evaluation and Translation will support the development and translation of a deeper evidence base into effective monitoring and evaluation framework encompassing governance, standards, tools, and processes. This framework will underpin increased measurement, monitoring and reporting, investment, prioritisation, and the realisation of targeted outcomes in family violence prevention.

The closing date for this position is midnight, Sunday 27 September 2020.

This position is only open to applicants with relevant rights to work in Australia.
