Council on the Ageing (COTA Victoria) is the leading not-for-profit organisation representing the interests and rights of people aged over 50 in Victoria. For nearly 70 years in Victoria, we have led government, corporate and community thinking about the positive aspects of ageing.  COTA Victoria’s strategic and operational focus is on promoting older age as a time of opportunities for personal growth, contribution and self-expression.

Seniors Rights Victoria (SRV) is a program of COTA Victoria which addresses and responds to older people experiencing elder abuse.  Elder abuse is any act which causes harm to an older person, carried out by someone they know and trust.  Elder abuse is recognised as a form of family violence.

SRV’s services include a Helpline, specialist legal services, short term support and advocacy, and community education, in addition to broader policy, systemic advocacy, law reform and capacity building roles both in Victoria and nationally.  SRV has received funding to implement a recommendation of the Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence to design and deliver training in elder abuse to family violence service providers and others.

We are seeking a qualified and experienced trainer / training designer, preferably with design / delivery experience in family violence, elder abuse, and/or issues relevant to older people.   The successful candidate will be an excellent project manager who is strongly committed to delivering a high quality training package addressing this important family violence issue. 


Applicants should express their interest through a short covering letter attaching their resume and a brief document addressing the key selection criteria to be considered for the role.
