Australian Red Cross is part of the largest humanitarian movement in the world seeking to build a better society based on people helping people.
We work to assist migrants in transition to ensure they have their humanitarian needs met and are participating and included in Australian society.
We seek to support people who are particularly vulnerable due to their circumstances, for example, people seeking protection, with restricted access to support and services, or vulnerable to exploitation.
We work directly with those seeking help, irrespective of their legal status, their background, or how they arrived in Australia.
You will lead our local work in increasing inclusion activities, specifically the roll out and expansion of In Search of Safety education program for schools, and related community engagement models.
You will continue to build partnerships to activate change for greater engagement in civic, economic and community participation for migrants in transition. The role will be responsible for overseeing delivery of interactive programs to increase understanding of and empathy for the experiences of those impacted by forced migration.
You will work closely with local leadership and contribute to a nationwide Community of Practice of this program, especially measuring impact.
Work for purpose, know that the work you do enables Red Cross to support and empower people and communities in times of vulnerability.
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.
