ACON is Australia’s largest health organisation specialising in community health, inclusion and HIV responses for people of diverse sexualities and genders.
ACON is seeking a committed and passionate Community Health Promotion Officer to support ACON’s commitment to engaging and empowering LGBTQ communities and community members and staff from culturally, linguistically, and ethnically diverse, migrant, and refugee backgrounds, and LGBTQ people of colour.
ACON is Australia’s largest organisation specialising in 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.
Strategically placed within the HIV and Sexual Health Division, this role will work across ACON, providing insight from lived expertise and work experience to inform and support ACON campaigns, health promotion programs, and services to better engage LGBTQ community members from culturally, linguistically, and ethnically diverse, migrant, and refugee backgrounds, and LGBTQ people of colour.
Furthermore, this role will support ACON in delivering culturally safe and relevant programs across Greater Western Sydney. This will help enable improved access to health services, community connection, and increased health literacy – which are shown to support increased HIV and STI testing uptake, reduce HIV transmission and lead to improved health and wellbeing. Key to the success of this role will be the ability to work across multiple projects and divisions within ACON and develop new relationships and partnership with LGBTQ.
This is a great opportunity to work alongside ACON’s Manager, Community Partnerships, Peer Education and Population Programs to grow ACON’s portfolio and work within the multicultural sector.
ACON is committed to providing our people with opportunities for professional development and growth, a safe, fun, and flexible work environment, and the scope to deliver innovative community health programs and services.
