About the Role
Are you keen to use your communications expertise to raise awareness about the needs of ageing Stolen Generations members and their descendants highlighting Intergenerational Trauma as the root cause of issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities?
An exciting opportunity is now available for an experienced communications professional to lead The Healing Foundation’s work in this area.
Based in the Strategic and Public Communications team, an example day in this role might involve developing and implementing communications strategies and projects, drafting media materials or briefing notes, overseeing the organisation’s digital work, preparing our CEO or Board members for interviews, pitching stories to traditional and digital media outlets or interviewing members of the Stolen Generations about their experiences to help tell their stories.
While we’re interested in the results you’ve achieved in previous communications roles, it’s your ability to work with Stolen Generations members and their descendants, sound judgement, solutions-oriented approach, ability to work in a small team and to deadlines while remaining calm under pressure, and your excellent attention to detail that will make you really stand out. And always ensuring that our work does no more harm so that it’s not about chasing the story at any cost.
You will possess strong writing skills, excellent verbal communication and interpersonal skills, be experienced in managing staff and a wide range of stakeholder relationships including contracts, and be willing to undertake inter/intrastate travel, including to regional and remote locations, as required.
