Paralegal, Not-for-Profit Law (2 positions available)

Not-for-profit Law is Justice Connect’s specialist service providing free and low cost legal assistance to not-for-profit community organisations. We ‘help the helpers' by providing tailored legal information, advice and training. By relieving the burden of legal issues, these organisations can better focus their time and energy on achieving their mission - whether that's supporting vulnerable people, delivering community services, enhancing diversity or bringing together the community.
 
We are seeking two part-time Paralegals (approx. 0.60 FTE each) to support to the Not-for-profit Law team across Victoria and New South Wales, including assisting with answering and triaging enquiries from small not-for-profit organisations seeking legal assistance, file management, website and database oversight. These roles are based in Melbourne.
 
If you are interested in using your paralegal and administrative skills to make a difference for the not-for-profit sector, we look forward to hearing from you.
