Neighbourhood Houses Victoria is excited to introduce a new HR and IR support service, NHV Assist Limited.

Officially launching on 1 July 2020, NHV Assist will aim to support happy, thriving community-based workplaces when it comes to matters of human resources and industrial relations.

"When I talk to managers, coordinators and committee members, one of the most frequent pieces of feedback I receive is that there’s currently a real gap in the market for HR and IR support that specialises in the unique and sometimes complex nature of the neighbourhood house sector. The development of NHV Assist is a direct response to that," said NHVic CEO Nicole Battle.

The service however is not just limited to neighbourhood houses, and extends to other smaller community-based organisations such as adult community education providers and early childhood providers.

Through an annual subscription model, NHV Assist will provide organisations with access to the following services:

  • Legal advice and support for IR matters
  • ​​HR case management and troubleshooting
  • ​​Tailored support for the development of contract and employment agreements​
  • ​​Employee Assistance Program (counselling)
  • ​​Mediation
  • ​​Recruitment and on-boarding
  • Paytables

Visit the NHV Assist website to find out more about the service offerings and pricings.   

Please note this service sits completely separate from a membership with Neighbourhood Houses Victoria and is its own legal entity.
