Job Description

Expressions of Interest – Suitability Panel                          

Appointment as Members (Four positions)

The Minister for Child Protection, Luke Donnellan MP, is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified people to appoint as members of the Suitability Panel in Victoria. The Suitability Panel, established under the Children, Youth and Families Act 2005, conducts hearings, and makes findings as to whether or not an out-of-home carer:

  • who is alleged to have sexually or physically abused a child should be disqualified from being a carer, or
  • who has been disqualified by the Panel should have their disqualification removed.

There are four Panel member positions to be appointed. Members will be chosen from a variety of relevant disciplines including law, social work, psychology, the treatment of sex offenders and other relevant disciplines.

The Victorian Government is committed to ensuring that government boards and committees reflect the rich diversity of the Victorian community.  We encourage applications from people of all ages, Aboriginal people, people with disability, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and from lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, gender diverse and intersex people. We will provide adjustments to the recruitment process upon request and consider requests for flexible working arrangements.

The successful candidates will work sessionally as Panel members.

For further information and the position description go to, or contact Julie Paxton at or on 0407 557 930.

Applications must be submitted online at

Closing date for applications is midnight, Sunday 25 April 2021.
