We have a fabulous opportunity with a rapidly growing national peak body working to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through negotiation and advocacy with Governments on health care policies and programs and systems reform, including the NDIS.

The role is the NDIS Engagement and Communications Officer, working in a small team set up to help build the capacity of their members to understand and navigate the disability policy and service delivery environment. More specifically, the role is responsible for the development of the national NDIS Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communications Initiative and will investigate, develop, coordinate, and implement national engagement and communication strategies with both providers and community.

This is an important role and will provide the lucky candidate with the opportunity to be part of some of the most impactful work happening in this country, but it will all come down to finding the right team and cultural fit!

So what are we looking for?

While advantageous, it is not necessary to have worked with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people previously, what is essential is that you bring an understanding and awareness of their history, culture, health and other issues affecting them. 

What is important is that you bring solid experience delivering at the team member level, the full suite of communication activities and functions. That you are able to not only develop and deliver on communication strategies, but that you have a respectful, consultative style that will engage your audience and stakeholders successfully, helping to further cement the exceptional work of this organisation.

Not only do you get to perform meaningful work, there is an attractive salary on offer - including 15% super and access to extensive salary sacrifice options.
