About Enterprise learning projects

Enterprise Learning Projects (ELP) is an extremely innovative, dynamic organisation, committed to driving positive change within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Our mission is to support Indigenous entrepreneurs, businesses, and community initiatives in achieving their goals and making a lasting impact. We are currently seeking highly motivated and dedicated individuals to join our team in two exciting Program Officer roles - one for our Incubation Program and the other for our Impact North program.

Our Incubation program is a 12 month+ intensive support program which supports remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander entrepreneurs who are looking to grow or evolve their existing businesses and expand their networks and skills.

Impact North

Impact North is a stand-alone initiative of Enterprise Learning Projects. It is a community for Northern Australian innovators who are creating social, environmental and cultural impact through their businesses. At Impact North we are building a collaborative peer network to motivate and support our entrepreneurs.

About the roles

Due to the continued growth and success of our entrepreneurial programs, we are excited to be recruiting for 2 x new Program Officer positions:

Position 1: Program Officer (Incubation Program)

Position 2: Program Officer (Impact North Program)

Both positions offer you the opportunity to make a difference in supporting entrepreneurs, to achieve lasting impactful outcomes, with the following key responsibilities:

  • Engage with potential participants in the program and build strong relationships with Indigenous entrepreneurs and other stakeholders.
  • Develop internal proposals/business cases and collaborate with senior colleagues within ELP to assess and review.
  • Pro-actively drive program planning and reporting.
  • Facilitate meetings and workshops in a culturally appropriate manner.
  • Coordinate events and manage travel logistics.
  • Identify and engage external facilitators to provide mentorship to entrepreneurs.
  • Utilise IT software tools for administration, record-keeping and basic visual design and presentations.
  • Contribute to individualised and intensive support for a small cluster of businesses/entrepreneurs.
  • Carry out regular check-ins and follow up with entrepreneur candidates and those participating in the program.
  • Participate in the assessment and evaluation processes, including survey facilitation and data collection.
  • Maintain emotional maturity, exercise good judgment, and employ versatile engagement methods with entrepreneurs.

This is a chance to work in a highly collaborative organisation, which will also provide you the opportunity to gain experience in other programs and services.

The Benefits

These roles both offer an extraordinary opportunity to contribute with purpose and help empower remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander entrepreneurs, to transform their communities through enterprise.
