Consumer Participation Officer
Is your super power creating consumer connections?
Health Issues Centre is looking for a Consumer Participation Officer for 1-2 days/week to help us place consumer representatives in health services and other organisations, and to provide mentoring, training and support to those consumers.
Health Issues Centre works with consumers, health professionals and government to ensure that the health system better meets the needs of ordinary consumers. We provide skills based training to ensure consumers are well equipped to participate at a systems level.
Respectful, transparent, communicative, collaborative, accountable are not aspirational values, just business as usual for us.
Our Consumer Participation Officer will help make sure there’s a good match between consumer reps and their host organisations.
Tasks to support this include developing position descriptions, designing and supporting recruitment processes, mentoring successful candidates and organisations, and helping us improve our training programs.
Of course, we’re interested in your expertise, but we’re more interested in your self-critical awareness, empathy, enthusiasm and ability to make us slap our foreheads and shout “Now why didn’t I think of that?”.
If you think this role sounds right for you, and you are ready to make your mark by bringing together great teams that include a clear consumer voice, then read the attached position description, and send your CV and a cover letter starting with “My super-power is…” and ending with “Boom” to firstname.lastname@example.org
For more information, call our office on 8676 9050.
