Pre-employment screening:

All employees at WIRE are required to undergo a Police Check and a Working with Children Check to confirm they are fit to work with WIRE service users and program participants. Convictions relating to assault, harassment or violence may indicate an applicant is not suitable to work at WIRE. However, we know that many people are unfairly criminalised, particularly people who have experienced family violence or who are part of marginalised communities. Contact us to have a confidential discussion about the circumstances of any conviction which might be considered a barrier to your employment at WIRE.

Good luck!
