About the company:

  • Development of resources to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders in moderating and mediating community use of technology, and in recognising and managing technology facilitated abuse which is used to extend domestic and family violence in communities.
  • Community capacity building and the provision of training - the development and implementation of a program of culturally appropriate resources to assist women in urban, regional and remote indigenous communities to identify and report technology-facilitated abuse, and to teach them how to keep themselves, and their children, safe online.

  • Develop and deliver new and customised resources and training materials for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
  • Deliver presentations and training sessions to specific audiences.

    your own expertise to achieve desired outcomes for these initiatives.
  • Subject to COVID-19 restrictions, this position will require significant levels of travel within Australia.

About You:
To succeed in this role, you will be a skilled facilitator and trainer, a team player, highly organised and motivated with a demonstrated ability to work flexibly and to tight deadlines. Further to this, to be considered for the role you will also need:
