    Work for ECCV

    Located in the heart of multicultural Melbourne, ECCV has the vibrant surroundings of the iconic Sydney Road Coburg. ECCV celebrates difference. Together our team offers different experiences, abilities, responsibilities, culture, ethnicity, language, age, gender and sexual identity, faith and thoughts. This enables us to provide the best policy advocacy to the ethnic, migrant and refugee communities.  We work hard to raise awareness and provide helpful tips for our team to improve their physical, social and mental wellbeing. ECCV provides staff with training, professional development opportunities and experiences relating to public policy advocacy.

    Employment Vacancies

    There are no current positions at this time. Please check back soon. 

    Volunteer with ECCV

    ECCV Board members are all volunteers and like most community based organisations we would not be able to function without the great work that volunteers do and the time they devote to the organisation’s governance.

    Members of the Board are elected but there are still areas of involvement where general volunteers can make their mark such as being part of one of our policy committees. 

    All committees are tasked with monitoring the implementation of strategies, evaluating effectiveness and guiding future direction. 

    All committee members must be financial members of ECCV and are appointed to their positions by way of application process. All committee members are required to attend monthly meetings, community events and represent the ECCV in a respectful and professional manner.

    To apply for a position on a committee, please look out for vacancies and follow the prompts. To enquire about committees, please email the respective committee contact person.

    We also take on board office-based volunteers from time to time to help with supporting events or project work so if you have some skills in these areas give us a call, we’d love to talk to you. 


    Intern with ECCV

    ECCV  hopes to begin another round of policy internships in 2020.


    We are proud to recognise the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, as the first Australians, cultural leaders and traditional custodians of the land from which we advocate for ethnic community groups. We pay our respects to their elders, past & present.
