About the role
Living Positive Victoria (LPV) is looking for a creative, highly-skilled, self-motivated program coordinator who can strategically engage, connect and support a broad range of stakeholder groups in achieving the goals of our nationally recognised and acclaimed Positive Speakers Bureau (PSB). In this role you will further develop and implement engagement strategies to diversify and explore new directions to achieve the required outcomes of the role and our Strategic Plan.

In addition to managing the PSB, the Coordinator will take lead in the planning, implementation and delivery of major events such as World AIDS Day and the International AIDS Candlelight Memorial, all of which are designed to emphasise the Meaningful Involvement of People with HIV principle (MIPA).
We’re interested in candidates with not only knowledge and experience of the HIV sector but the passion and drive to bring new ideas to the organisation that will continue to connect the PSB across Living Positive Victoria’s programs, services.
Working in a small team of dedicated, dynamic staff and volunteers committed to social change and action, you will have excellent time management skills, communication skills and attention to detail.
