About the role

The primary purpose of the Project Manager role is to develop and manage a program of diversity and inclusion initiatives and manage external and internal relationships. This role is an exciting opportunity within the Diversity & Inclusion team during a period when the team is working towards ambitious goals under the umbrella of Beyond Blue’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Strategy 2019-2024 and a new Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).

The Project Manager will lead and provide support to a number of ongoing projects, many of which are focused on working with a range of diverse communities, including but not limited to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, LGBTI communities, older people and people from culturally diverse backgrounds.

Accountabilities include but are not limited to:

  • Contribute to strategic, operational and project planning to ensure the focus of the Diversity & Inclusion program, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander priorities, is aligned with Beyond Blue objectives.
  • Manage and deliver a range of inclusion projects and activities to ultimately improve mental health outcomes for people from diverse communities.
  • Provide advice and guidance on projects and activities to ensure they are ‘culturally fit’ and inclusive of diverse communities’ needs.
  • Manage stakeholder, general public and service provider relationships through effective communication, negotiation, issues management, and responding to enquiries to ensure that deliverables are met, outcomes are achieved, and projects delivered.
  • Actively manage relationships with external Cultural Consultants and Service Providers to progress the strategic objectives of Beyond Blue.

The successful candidate will have:

  • Project Management – Knowledge and skills in planning, resource identification and coordination, task and activity monitoring, risk and issues management, reporting and overall delivery against defined objectives, methods and outcomes.
  • Stakeholder Management — Knowledge of principles and processes for effectively managing stakeholders. This includes internal and external stakeholder needs assessment, meeting quality standards for services, and evaluation of stakeholder satisfaction.
  • Document Preparation – High level writing skills and proven ability to prepare a variety of types of documentation including briefing notes, correspondence and reports with a high level of attention to detail and the ability to conceptually analyse information.
  • Diverse populations – Experience working with diverse population groups (such as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, LGBTI communities, older people, rural and remote communities and people from culturally diverse backgrounds).

The successful candidate will also have a tertiary qualification in relevant discipline (such as public health, health promotion, social sciences, research).

Please note our offices will be relocating to Melbourne CBD mid-2020.
