The Position

The Minister for Prevention of Family Violence seeks to appoint four Board Directors for a term of up to three years commencing from mid-2023.

The Board plays a key role in driving strategic oversight and good governance of Respect Victoria. Specialist expertise across primary prevention of family violence and all forms of violence against women, corporate governance, operations, and financial management is desired. Expertise in other areas of public health or health promotion would also be highly valued.

The Board will reflect the diversity of Victoria’s community with applications encouraged from people with lived experience of family violence, violence against women and gender discrimination, Aboriginal people, young people, older Victorians, people with disability, people from culturally and linguistically diverse and LGBTQI+ communities.

These positions are remunerated with sessional rates for a Group C Organisation.

The Organisation

Respect Victoria was established in 2018 in response to Recommendation 188 of the Royal Commission into Family Violence, becoming the first agency dedicated solely to the primary prevention of violence against women and family violence in Victoria.

Respect Victoria serves as an independent voice with functions, powers and duties protected by law.

It works collaboratively with stakeholders to provide statewide leadership to create social, institutional, organisational and community change.
