Survivors’ Network aims to be inclusive of all people and their intersecting identities. We want to build a workforce that is reflective of our diverse society, and provide services that are survivor centred and accessible for all.

We want to work somewhere that gives us the freedom and flexibility to be ourselves, which recognises the great value in our differences, and supports us to succeed based on our individual strengths.

As a community and a staff team, we know that this is not something that can be achieved overnight, but is rather an ongoing practice of reflection, learning and action. As part of this action, we particularly welcome applications from self-identifying women from communities that are currently underrepresented in our team and the sector more broadly, including those who are
