About us

The Magistrates' Court of Victoria (MCV) is a jurisdiction within the Court Services Victoria statutory authority, and has a long history of providing justice for the people of Victoria in metropolitan and regional courts across the state. The Court determines in excess of 300,000 cases per annum at 51 venues, equating to approximately 90 per cent of all cases that come before Victorian courts each year. The Court aims to be an innovative, accessible and responsive court that provides quality services to the Victorian community.

The Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal (VOCAT) within MCV provides financial assistance to victims of crime committed in Victoria. VOCAT aims to assist victims of crime in their recovery by providing an accessible and empathetic service for those who require financial support. VOCAT is going through an exciting period of change, with centralisation of VOCAT operations statewide due to kick off in early 2023.

About the role

As a result of centralisation, the Melbourne VOCAT team is growing. This role will work within the Melbourne Registry team to provide administrative support and case manage their own allocation of VOCAT applications in conjunction with a VPS3 Registrar. Administrative Deputy Registrars of the Tribunal perform a wide range of administrative tasks within the Tribunal, including clientcontact (email, telephone and counter enquiries), general administrative responsibilities and case management duties.

About you

This is a fantastic development opportunity for someone with a passion for working with victims and who has administrative experience. A legal, criminology or justicerelated qualification will be highly regarded.
