About us

Our purpose is to prevent and minimise harm from alcohol and other drugs across Australia.

Celebrating nearly 60 years of service to the community, the Alcohol and Drug Foundation (ADF), is a leading national organisation committed to guiding and supporting community led action.

The ADF's work reaches millions of people in local communities through sporting clubs, community groups, health organisations and schools, offering educational information, drug and alcohol prevention programs. Proudly independent, we build strong alliances that help deliver positive outcomes and strengthen our collective impact. Our approach is reflected in our organisational culture of collaboration and innovation.

About the role

You can expect to be working with councils, leagues and associations to promote Good Sports and our prevention programs across the state of Tasmania. These will aim to build resilience and strengthen capacity within our communities to reduce alcohol and other drug related harm.

Your day could consist of supporting communities to plan and implement local approaches to preventing alcohol and other drug related harms, a meeting with a sporting club or community group, before heading back to the office to undertake administration, updating our CRM Salesforce and managing your stakeholders from afar and in person. You might be attending or presenting at a community forum that is jam packed with lots of stakeholder engagement and you will use our technologies to help engage your audience.

The role requires someone who is a confident presenter and networker, a self-starter, energetic and has the flexibility to work some evenings and occasional weekends. Top notch communication skills are a must.

Your working environment is extremely collaborative, and your colleagues are passionate and committed to help our communities build their capacity to minimise harm from alcohol and other drugs. You will be at the forefront of working towards making change at a community level.

Please note: Due to the location of communities and sporting clubs it is likely that some intrastate and occasional interstate travel will be required.

About you

As the successful candidate, you must be motivated by our values and have a broad, deep appreciation of what it takes to meet targets whilst truly engaging our communities. You will have experience in a volunteer role in a sporting club, and/or experience in local government.

To succeed you will be:

  • Exceptional at managing stakeholder relationships
  • A confident communicator - gift of the gab
  • Confident with delivering presentations and leading others
  • Able to work with diverse groups of people
  • Patient and able to work through challenges
  • Able to think on your feet
  • Solutions based
  • Tech savvy and have CRM experience
  • A full drivers license with comprehensive car insurance

The successful candidate for this role must be willing to undergo a Working with Children and Police check.

The ADF encourages cultural diversity and our programs are reflective of our community partners, stakeholders and community at large. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged to apply.
