Position Details

Can you tell me more about what you do at VLSB+C?

Great question! We're really proud of the work we do. We are the regulator of the Victorian legal profession. We license lawyers and oversee service standards and conduct. This includes handling complaints about lawyers, investigating poor conduct and overseeing management of trust accounts. We are also the stewards of the public purpose and fidelity funds and administer these to support legal regulation and access to justice in Victoria.

We are a modern best practice regulator, using data and insights to help identify where our actions can have the greatest impact on ensuring ethical and professional legal practice by Victorian lawyers. We are passionate about maintaining and protecting the rule of law by ensuring the integrity of the legal profession.

Okay, and what role are you recruiting for?

We're looking for a Manager, Intervention & Enforcement to join our Intervention & Enforcement team. You will be responsible for the management of a team of legal and non-legal staff, and for overseeing external interventions of law practices, unqualified practice investigations, the investigation of criminal and disciplinary offences, related litigation and alternative regulatory responses.

This is getting interesting, what type of person are you looking for?

We're looking for passionate and driven people to work with us as we continue to enhance our services to the Victorian public.

  • A high level of understanding of how to interpret and apply legislation, especially Legal Profession Uniform Law Application Act 2014.
  • Admitted to practice as an Australian Legal Practitioner with significant experience. Private practice experience is desirable.

That sounds like me! How are you different from other organisations?

We're really excited by our organisation, we offer:

  • Flexibility: We have work leading edge flexible working options including part-time, compressed hours, flexible start time, up to 2 days working from home.
