Recruitment process

Some positions require a Working with Children Check or a Police Check. As a law practice, Victoria Legal Aid must comply with obligations under the Legal Profession Uniform Law (Victoria) and ensure that prior to hiring, employees have made the required disclosures. For further information see the Legal Services Board. If this is a requirement of the role it will be specified in the position description.
