ADRA Australia is a child safe organisation and screens applicants for suitability to work with children, successful applicants will be required to obtain a police check. Police checks must be conducted for each country in which the individual has lived for 12 months or longer over the last five years, and for the individual’s country of citizenship (including dual citizenship holders). Individuals need to provide their consent to a criminal record check and should be informed of the purpose for which the resulting police clearance certificate should be used. ADRA Australia recognises that in limited instances it may prove impossible to obtain a reliable criminal record check. A statutory declaration outlining efforts made to obtain a foreign police check, and disclosing any charges and spent convictions related to child exploitation, may be accepted in lieu.

ADRA Australia is an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) employer. A copy of relevant policies are available on request. The appointing body reserves the right to fill positions at its discretion. Successful applicants will already have the legal right to live and work in Australia.
