About the role

This position is an important leadership position within the NSW HIV sector and in the development of health policy and responses for LGBTQ+ people in NSW.

ACON is here for community health, inclusion, and HIV responses for people of diverse sexualities and genders. We provide a range of services designed to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities.

Our new manager will have a strong track record in work relevant to this important Division within ACON.  Ideally, the successful candidate will have a well-developed understanding of HIV and LGBTQ+ Health, policy issues relevant to the populations ACON serves, and the strategic context within which ACON operates – being NSW’s largest and leading HIV and LGBTQ+ health promotion organisation.

This key position at ACON is responsible for developing and managing ACON’s engagement with, and participation in, policy, research, and grants development processes. Our manager will facilitate an integrated approach to policy and research that enhances ACON’s evidence-based methods of program & service delivery, advocacy, and the development of new projects. This is a busy and highly rewarding role for a person with an interest in a broad range of issues, and a passion for the development of policy and evidence generation.

The role will both drive and be responsible for the development and maintenance of key strategic relationships with Government and other stakeholders, and key decision makers.

Additionally, our manager also supports organisation wide strategic processes, to facilitate improved engagement with ACON’s communities and to support the senior leadership team in determining strategic priorities for the organisation.

This is a fantastic role and we are keen to welcome another high-calibre employee to ACON.
