AVI supports the implementation of the Australian Volunteers Program on behalf of the Australian Government. The Australian Volunteers Program works with partner organisations across 26 countries in the Indo-Pacific region, to support them to achieve their own development goals. The program is actively exploring new ways of working, particularly in response to COVID-19, through our Innovation Fund, which identifies, develops and pilots new ideas and solutions to increase the impact of the program.
If successful, you will work with our country teams to coordinate the design and delivery of new volunteering model prototypes, transforming them from early design ideas to live activities, by building and documenting new processes; working closely with teams across the program to coordinate delivery; and, supporting volunteers, partners and program staff in their participation in the prototypes.
This role will suit you if you like building new things and a fast-paced role, and so needs someone who can be creative, flexible and comfortable working in an ambiguous or uncertain space.
The position works as part of the Partnerships and Innovation team and reports to the Innovation Fund Manager. This role is Full-Time, however 0.8 FTE (4 days per week) will also be considered.
