Position Details

Situated at the very heart of Melbourne in Federation Square, ACMI explores the rapid evolution and astonishing creativity of the moving image with a vibrant, multilayered program of exhibitions, screenings, installations and commissions, festivals, and public, industry & education programs. ACMI is the most successful museum of its kind in the world.  It plays a vital part in establishing Melbourne as a global cultural destination. In 2017/18, ACMI attracted 1.55 million visitors to its Federation Square site, and 454,200 visitors to its national and international exhibition touring program.

As we rapidly evolve towards a knowledge economy, ACMI presents its stories and objects in unique ways, spanning the conventions of traditional museums and reflecting the innovation and evolution of the moving image in our fast-moving world. We are embarking on a visionary $40m redevelopment that will transform the institution, overhauling our permanent exhibition, dramatically improving the visitor experience, integrating cutting-edge technology and expanding our education programs. ACMI's Fed Square site is planned for re-launch in mid-2020.

We are looking for a candidate who will work collaboratively with a range of colleagues across the organisation and be able to demonstrate excellent interpersonal, diplomatic, communication and influencing skills. An experienced paralegal, you are likely to have gained your experience in a similar organisation and can work to tight deadlines in a high pressure but collaborative, collegiate environment. 

If successful, you can expect to become part of a small, high performing team, delivering governance and legal services to support our talented committed and creative colleagues to deliver ACMI's film and digital media programs, exhibitions and activities, in an organisation where our visitor experience and our ability to work as a team are critical to our success. This role is an opportunity to further your career in a fast paced, innovative and collaborative environment. 

This Grade 4 role has a starting salary of $85,279 + super.
