LGBTIQ+ Health Australia (LHA) is the national peak health organisation in Australia for organisations and individuals that provide health-related programs, services and research focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people and other sexuality, gender and bodily diverse people and communities.
LHA works with legislators, policy makers and service providers to help them understand and address the needs of LGBTIQ+ people and communities. We support LHA members to have a stronger policy voice and partner with researchers across the country on issues of LGBTIQ+ health and wellbeing.
The Sexual Violence Prevention (SVP) Program Lead is responsible for the successful and professional management of LHA’s SVP program. The core focus of this role is to ensure that LHA’s SVP program is delivered to the highest standard and is guided by current research and models of best practice. As a peak body, LHA is not a direct service or program provider, LHA works with partners across Australia to deliver programs and initiatives with LHA providing high level national coordination. This role requires demonstrated high level project and partnership management experience.
A key objective of this role is to represent LHA in the broader service system relative to sexual violence prevention (SVP), intimate partner violence (IPV) and domestic and family violence (DFV). The role requires high-level leadership and representational skills and management experience with an ability to build the capacity of LHA and its member organisations to engage effectively in SVP, IPV and DFV specific to LGBTIQ+ communities.
This position sits in LHA’s leadership team and will work closely with LHA’s policy and research and mental health and suicide prevention programs to ensure integration and strategic decision making across the organisations’ work. As a national health peak, LHA is committed to strong leadership and building the capacity of member organisations and external stakeholders to address broader structural inequities impacting the health and wellbeing of LGBTIQ+ communities. The work of this role is guided by the key performance indicators in LHA’s program contracts.
All staff are required to ensure that within their role and delivery of their work, they consider and incorporate the needs of the LGBTIQ+, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, BrotherBoys and SisterGirls.
