Working at Legal Aid NSW

Legal Aid NSW believes that people are at the heart of all our services. Some of the many ways that we do this are to offer attractive employment conditions, flexible working arrangements, a range of family friendly policies and opportunities for professional development.

Legal Aid NSW is an equal opportunity employer. We value diversity in our workforce and in our workplace.

We have an ongoing professional development program for staff which is also available to our partners.

We promote the health and safety of our staff.

We are a FlexReady certified agency!

Flexible working involves re-thinking ‘when, where and how’ we work. It’s about supporting and promoting wellbeing, performance and a ‘work life balance’ for all our staff.

At Legal Aid NSW, we have an ongoing commitment to flexible working and an openness to having conversations about flexible working with our staff and with prospective future employees.

This commitment has been recognised by FlexCareers; a careers platform connecting talented individuals seeking a more balanced life, with employers committed to offering flexible work, through our FlexReady Certification.

If you have any questions about flexible working at Legal Aid NSW, please email flexwork@legalaid.nsw.gov.au.
