Fixed term - (until 24/04/2020) - VPS3 Registrar Role - Family Violence Contact Centre - Melbourne CBD

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 looking for a dynamic, client focused registrar to join our high performing team which is focussed on providing a flexible work environment. The Contact Centre is looking for a Grade 3 Registrar to work at 350 Queen St, Melbourne for a 12 month period. There is also the opportunity for career progression with a Supervising Registrar (VPS4) and Contact Centre Manager (VP5) leading the leam. 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 preperation 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.
