Why work with Justice Connect?

You have an opportunity to join one of Australia’s most impactful legal service organisations.

At Justice Connect, we believe in a fair and just world, where people and communities are supported to engage with and fully participate in our legal and social systems, and avoid the negative impacts on their wellbeing or organisational health that flow from unresolved legal problems. 

From preventing homelessness and providing legal support to disaster-affected communities, to helping not-for-profit organisations navigate complex regulatory requirements, we work across different areas of law through our multi-channel and multi-intensity legal services and network of 10,000 pro bono lawyers.

We use digital strategies so our lawyers and social workers can spend their time assisting people disproportionately impacted by the law. We don’t just help people navigate the legal system, we also work to improve it. With our passionate and creative staff, and deep expertise in the law, we leverage casework insights and data to advocate for policy and systems-level change.

Our values

Client centered

We centre our work and our goals around the needs of the people and communities that benefit from our work.

Inclusive

The law disproportionately impacts certain groups. It creates and perpetuates cycles of hardship, and it provides tools and skills to redress unfair power dynamics. To realise our purpose we must embrace different perspectives, experience and skills in our work, in our organisational culture and teams, and in our policies and strategic direction.

Collaborative

We collaborate internally and externally because we know that together we are greater than the sum of our parts.

Responsive

We look out for changes and we adapt and move easily and quickly in response.

Innovative

We embrace innovation, curiosity and system-level thinking. We are not afraid to research, try, fail and iterate.

Impactful

We are evidence informed and rigorous in how we work, we look for opportunities to learn and improve, and can clearly demonstrate our impact.

 

Diversity and inclusion

Justice Connect is a proud member of Diversity Council Australia (DCA) — an independent, national not-for-profit peak body leading diversity and inclusion in the workplace. 

We are currently developing our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategy to achieve our vision of a diverse and equitable organisation where we live our value of inclusion, and hold each other accountable to this commitment.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people of colour, people from culturally and linguistically diverse and refugee backgrounds, people with diverse religious beliefs, gender diverse people, LGBTIQ+ people, and people living with a disability are strongly encouraged to apply.
