Why join the ALS team

At the Aboriginal Legal Service you can make an impact.

You will join a strong movement fighting for social justice and equity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, families and communities.


Our story

Born out of a protest movement over 50 years ago, we are an Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation delivering high-quality, culturally safe legal and support services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in NSW and the ACT.

It’s an exciting time to be joining us. We recently received additional funding to deliver a range of new programs aimed at addressing systemic issues and driving structural reforms. This is creating significant opportunities for the ALS, our staff and communities. 


Our people

Our team is made up of 250+ people working across NSW and the ACT.

We are lawyers, social and support workers, field officers, administrative gurus, policy reformists, social justice advocates, and the brilliant people who enable it all to happen: IT experts, HR advisors, accountants, and more.


Staff benefits

As well as the satisfaction of working in a job that really matters, ALS staff* have access to a range of benefits including:

  • Not-for-profit salary packaging to reduce your tax liability and maximise take-home pay
  • Annual leave loading of 17.5%
  • Career and professional development opportunities
  • Access to personal counselling for you and your family
  • Additional paid leave of up to 6 days per year, paid parental and study leave
  • Flexible work options

If you're interested in a role, feel free to reach out to our recruitment team to discuss how we can make the role work for you.

*Some of these benefits are not available for staff on casual contracts.


Our commitment to you

Our focus is our people: the people we support and the people we employ. We offer a career you can be proud of and a place where you feel safe to be yourself.

We invest in our people and appreciate the rich diversity of lived experiences, languages, and culture.
