Become a VSBC mediator

The VSBC mediation panels

The VSBC metropolitan and regional and rural mediation panels are made up of mediators with experience in commercial dispute resolution and a passion for helping people to resolve their small business disputes quickly, efficiently and at a low cost.

Mediators serve on the panel for two years. After this period, they may choose to reapply when the next round of applications opens.

Applying to become a mediator

The next round of applications to become a member of our metropolitan or regional and rural mediation panel will open in September 2021.

However, if you are a mediator based in regional or rural Victoria and you are interested in joining our regional and rural panel, we’d like to hear from you ahead of this time. Contact Senior Mediation Officer Rebecca McKelvie on (03) 9651 9967 or at rebecca.mckelvie@vsbc.vic.gov.au.

Applicants will need to have:

  • national mediator accreditation under the national Mediator Accreditation System by a recognised Mediator Accreditation Body
  • relevant experience
  • capability to mediate in relevant jurisdictions.
