About the Role

The Parent-Infant Research Institute (PIRI) is a not-for-profit institute whose vision is to improve the emotional well-being of parents and to optimise infant development (

Perinatal depression and anxiety are the leading cause of maternal death and disability. They affect the development of many infants and unborn children and disrupt the relationship between mother and child. The long-term impacts on educational attainment and health incur enormous costs into adulthood. Meanwhile, the stigma associated with perinatal mental health problems means that women are frequently forced to hide their symptoms and avoid seeking treatment and care. Fewer than 50% of women seek or accept help, even when identified as depressed and only 10% receive adequate, effective treatment. In addition, men or partners are also frequently affected.

The Parent-Infant Research Institute is committed to making a difference to parent well-being and infant development (conception to 2 years) through research and the development of evidence-based treatments for mothers, fathers and babies. Our areas of speciality include antenatal and postnatal depression, prematurity and the parent-infant relationships. We aim to continue providing cutting edge research, roll out our programs and commercialize. We are now expanding into e-mental health treatments, leading the provision of e-mental health resources for perinatal depression (

PIRI has an international reputation as a leader in perinatal mental health research and new treatments and is auspiced by Austin Health which provides a ‘home’ to the innovative work that is making a difference to the lives of mothers, fathers and babies. Our funding is largely through grants, tenders and supports a vigorous team of clinicians and researchers. As a not-for-profit organisation we also rely on probono services to achieve our aims.

Due to the retirement of our incumbent probono auditor, KPMG, we are seeking an auditor who can offer a probono service and conduct the annual audit of our financial statements and ensure that the organisation is compliant with all other legal responsibilities associated with its financial operations. The financial records of PIRI are maintained on Quick Books Online.

The auditor must be a member of, and hold a current practising certificate issued by either, CPA Australia, the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia, or the Institute of Public Accountants.
