ACCESS Leadership Program Coordinator

Full time

About the role

The ACCESS Leadership Program Coordinator is a newly created position to support the expansion of WAGEC’s ACCESS program. The ACCESS program, developed and delivered by WAGEC since 2020, supports women’s economic safety through mentoring and responsive programs, and partnerships with employers and the community.

The ACCESS Leadership Program Coordinator is responsible for developing and delivering the ACCESS Leadership Program, which seeks to support employers to build their capacity to create workplaces that are accessible to and supportive of women who have experienced domestic, family and sexual violence.

The role is a full time, 12-month fixed term contract as a Level 5 employee under the Social, Community, Home Care, and Disability Services Industry Award (SCHADS 5). You can view the pay guide here. The role is based in Redfern with occasional travel to other sites in the inner city and inner west.

About the organisation

Women’s and Girls’ Emergency Centre (WAGEC) is a non-government, not-for profit charitable organisation that delivers a range of crisis and early intervention accommodation and support services to women, children, young people, and families who are experiencing, or at risk of homelessness and/or domestic and family violence. At the same time, we seek to address the underlying causes of gender-based violence through primary prevention activities with communities and private and public entities that want to be a part of the global movement to end gender-based violence in a generation.

For over 40 years we have been doing this work across the lands of the Gadigal and Wangal people of the Eora Nation (Sydney’s inner city and inner west regions), and working in partnership with community, business and government stakeholders
