Work for ECCV
Located in the vibrant multicultural neighbourhood of 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 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 in public policy advocacy and community outreach.

Speak My Language (Travellers)
ECCV is looking to hire people with lived experience of disability from CALD and Indigenous communities to undertake interviews with guest speakers and produce podcasts, broadcasts or videos for the Speak My Language program.
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 volunteers can make their mark, such as being part of one of our policy committees.
Policy Committees are tasked with monitoring the implementation of strategies, evaluating effectiveness and guiding future direction.
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 to join an ECCV committee, please look out for vacancies our website and social media. 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 internships in 2021.
