  • Sound knowledge and understanding of the issues impacting migrants in transition in the community, and inclusion issues more broadly
  • Proven ability to build relationships and collaborate effectively with a diverse range of internal and external stakeholders
  • Strong communication, presentation and facilitation skills. Experience facilitating to groups of young people would be ideal
  • High level project admin skills, including ability to develop reports and maintain records / databases
  • Experience in recruitment, management, engagement and development of volunteers
  • Demonstrated cultural competence and the ability to work with people from diverse backgrounds

You can access flexible working arrangements and generous salary packaging options that can increase your take home pay by paying certain expenses using pre-tax dollars up to $15,900 a year.
