The Queensland Council for LGBTI Health (formerly Queensland AIDS Council) promotes Equal Employment Opportunity. All selection is based on proven experience, qualifications and/or training and the person’s potential to undertake the responsibilities of the position most efficiently. We will not discriminate against applicants on any grounds not relevant in determining the best person for the position.
The Queensland Council for LGBTI Health utilises the Rainbow Tick Principles and Practice Standards to guide its own work, and uses this Framework to facilitate LGBTI Sistergirl and Brotherboy inclusion and continuous innovation and quality improvement amongst staff and other parts of the organisation. Meeting the Practice Standards in their own work is a key deliverable for all staff roles.
The Queensland Council for LGBTI Health is also committed to walking alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to build stronger relationships, cultural autonomy, understanding and recognition of the history, cultures and diversity that make up Australian First Nations peoples.
Like most charitable organisations, The Queensland Council for LGBTI Health is willing to pay a percentage of the salary as expense fringe benefits – i.e. reimbursements to employees for their own expenses such as private telephone costs, rent or mortgage payments, personal loan repayments, etc. These non-cash benefits are not subject to income tax. The Federal Government imposes a net cap of $15,900 pa on expense fringe benefits, above which the range of allowable expenses is restricted.
