About the role

About the organisation

Organisation Name : RISING

RISING is a surge of art, music and ceremony in the heart of Melbourne.

Taking the place of the Melbourne International Arts Festival and White Night Melbourne, RISING is a major cultural event for the Asia Pacific Region created by a diverse team of local, national and international artists and curators.

RISING will begin on the evening of the total lunar eclipse in May 2021. Interlocking circles of experience and connection will radiate through the night, as the city re-synchronises and is re-energised with public art, performance and music spanning the emerging and iconic, the epic and intimate.

The inaugural festival will take place 26 May – 6 June 2021.


Reporting to the HR & Payroll Coordinator, the Reception & HR Assistant is a key member of the Corporate Services team whose responsibilities include supporting RISING’s COVID-Safe return to office plan, human resources, information technology, facilities and other corporate services.

The Reception & HR Assistant’s primary purpose is to act as our COVID-19 Officer for the team and our return to office. As the first face people see when they visit Lonsdale Street (or hear, when they call on the phone), you exude an aura that is welcoming, courteous and helpful.

You’re a stickler for detail and accuracy with high standards and sound judgement, but you also recognise you work with human beings, so you’re flexible, open and collaborative – particularly when it comes to the interpretation and application of policy and procedures.

You are able to adapt to a fluctuating workload and a dynamic, demanding work environment. No one holds you to a higher standard than yourself – you believe in personal accountability and understand delegations of authority. You’re comfortable and experienced in handling confidential and sensitive information.
