  • Facilitate evaluation of OCP resources using a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods
  • Utilise your exceptional written, verbal and interpersonal communication skills to influence the provision of optimal cancer care by key stakeholders across Victoria.

All about you

We are looking for someone with:

  • A health-related tertiary qualification and substantial project management experience.
  • Demonstrated experience in the management, development and evaluation of resources for consumers and clinicians.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, including the ability to communicate effectively with a wide range of individuals and groups.
  • Excellent relationship management skills, with the ability to influence and negotiate with internal and external stakeholders.
