    What you will do

    With a diverse range of administrative and corporate roles, we offer challenging and engaging work.

    You will be dedicated to making a real difference for vulnerable Queenslanders. No matter the role, you will bring your best to work and provide exceptional services to ensure our clients receive the best possible service we can provide. You will be a friendly and calming presence with an ability to work collaboratively with others, showing kindness and respect.

You’ll have access to conferences and other external training opportunities, and a catalogue of internal training programs in leadership, management, communication and IT systems. With flexible working arrangements available across most roles, Legal Aid Queensland employee wellbeing is at the forefront of everything we do.
