Position Details

Registrar- Family Violence Contact Centre x 2, Magistrates' Court of Victoria

  • 2 x Ongoing, Full Time roles
  • VPSG3
  • Melbourne CBD location

The Family Violence Contact Centre (Contact Centre) has been established in response to a recommendation of the Royal Commission into Family Violence. Already highly successful, the Contact Centre provides a responsive service to family violence victim survivors, and relieves the extensive administrative burden experienced by FV registrars. This is resulting in improved workflow and increased efficiencies in court operations for participating courts.

The Contact Centre is excited to expand to three more courts and needs dynamic, client focused registrars to join our high performing team which is focused on providing a flexible work environment.

The Contact Centre is looking for two Grade 3 Registrars to work at 350 Queen Street, Melbourne on an ongoing basis. There is also the opportunity for career progression with a Supervising Registrar (VPS4) and Contact Centre Manager (VPS5) leading the team. Applicants seeking part time or flexible working hours are strongly encouraged to apply.  

The primary responsibility of the Family Violence Contact Centre Registrar is to respond to family violence related queries within the Magistrates' Courts (both phone and email). Family Violence enquiries may come from service providers (including police, legal and other services), victim survivors and perpetrators of family violence.

The FVCC Registrar will be required to exercise powers conferred under the Magistrates' Court Act 1989, the National Domestic Violence Order Scheme Act and other Acts and Rules.  These powers involve the preparation and processing of administrative and statutory documentation and the exercise of discretionary quasi-judicial and statutory powers using professional judgement in applying legislative requirements, established rules and precedents, and the Court's Practice Directions.

Please note one of the positions is not expected to commence until May 2019, however this may be earlier depending on movement of staff.
