Peer Mentoring Program Officer

Eating Disorders Victoria
  • Part time, 0.8EFT, 2-year contract

About the program

Competent and purpose driven project administrator needed to support the smooth running of rapidly growing innovative program providing peer mentors to people recovering from an eating disorder. With increased funding for the next 2 years we are looking for someone who can ensure that as we grow, we continue to provide a robust program and monitor its effectiveness effectively.

EDV developed a Peer Mentoring Program (PMP) in 2016 in partnership with one of Melbourne’s public hospitals. This initiative supports adults with an eating disorder upon discharge from a hospital inpatient unit or on intensive day program, to ensure they can consolidate and sustain steps towards recovery. The program matches Mentors, who are casual employees and who have recovered from an eating disorder, with adults in recovery. The pairs meet on a fortnightly basis over a six-month period (13 mentoring sessions) to work towards the self-identified goals in their Wellness Plan. The main function of PMP Officer is ensuring the program runs smoothly.

About the role

The PMP Officer is involved in all areas of the program to assist with smooth implementation. Tasks include:

  • Promoting PMP and the referral process to external stakeholders and via social media
  • Receiving referrals and conducting matches
  • Recording peer mentoring session dates, coordinating the collection of data and checking in regularly with IT systems which support the program
  • Processing expense claims, timesheet and purchasing resources for the PMP
  • Planning and coordinating group mentor and mentee sessions
  • Collation of relevant data for evaluation of the program

The program is currently funded until 30 June 2022.

A position description is attached.
