Expressions of Interest now open

17 May 2019

The Victorian Government is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified, culturally and linguistically diverse Victorians for positions at the Victorian Multicultural Commission.

Nine positions are available in total, including a full-time Chairperson, a part-time Deputy Chairperson, a part-time Youth Commissioner and multiple part-time Commissioners roles.

The positions will support the Commission’s functions as a vital conduit between diverse communities and the Victorian Government.

Successful applicants will investigate and report on systemic issues facing Victoria’s culturally and religiously diverse communities and advocate on behalf of communities. The positions will also assist the Commission to provide independent advice to the government to inform policy and legislation, as well as service delivery for Victoria’s multicultural communities.

More broadly, the roles serve to advance multiculturalism and help ensure that diversity continues to enrich the Victorian community, and that our state is safe and inclusive for all Victorians.

The Victorian Government is committed to reflecting our community in the representation of government trusts and boards.

Victorians from all backgrounds are welcome to apply for the positions, and the government encourages applications from women, Aboriginal Victorians, young Victorians, Victorians living with a disability, and people identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, gender diverse and intersex, with a commitment to ensure that women are appointed to 50 per cent of all paid board and trust positions.

Shortlisted candidates will be contacted for interview, with positions expected to commence in August 2019.
