Hugging the tip of the Australian east coast, Victoria is Australia’s second-smallest state, covering 227,600 square kilometres – roughly the size of the British Isles.


Packed into such a compact area is a wealth of diverse regional areas and attractions, sweeping coastline, pristine beaches, national parks, forests teeming with wildlife, wineries, lakes and mountains offering skiing, climbing and hiking. Best of all, many of Victoria’s unique and varied landscapes are easily accessible as day trips, no matter where you live.


Opportunities currently exist for Advanced Child Protection Practitioners (CPP4), Leading Practice roles (CPP5) and Expert Practice roles (CPP6) in Victoria, and in particular, in the many townships and regions across our state.


Limited visa sponsorship under the Temporary Skill Shortage (e482) is available for successful candidates.
