About Us

ACSO is committed to the equitable treatment of its participants, employees and partners. We believe in humanity and celebrating the diverse voices of our community through leadership, practice and policy design, to honour and embrace diverse traditions, cultures and experiences of those we support and work alongside.

About the program and the role

Our People and Culture teams' goal is to attract the best talent and retain them through helping our organisation create a fantastic employee experience. We're looking for the perfect piece in our team puzzle to cover a period of parental leave - we're seeking an enthusiastic and results driven People and Culture Partner.

This is a great opportunity for someone who can hit the ground running and who thrives on closely partnering with all levels of stakeholders to support them in people management across the employee lifecycle. You will be comfortable operationally supporting leaders but also strategically - no two days are the same!

What we're looking for

Our new team member will need to:

  • Quickly build rapport with leaders to become an influential and trusted partner
  • Be passionate, proactive and results driven
  • Have demonstrated experience as a successful Business Partner across the employee life cycle including ER experience and organisational change - Fair Work advocacy is highly desirable
  • Approachable, friendly and supportive to everyone
  • High customer service with natural inclination to go above and beyond
  • Ability to juggle competing tasks and adapt at limited notice
  • An eye for continuous improvement
  • Be able to have fun and a laugh with our team and stakeholders
  • Be comfortable working in the forensic space - we know it's not for everyone
  • Desire and ability to work flexibly (we're currently working from home most of the time), with an ability to attend hubs as operationally required

What ACSO can offer you

  • Full-time (or part-time 0.8/0.9 FTE will be considered for the right candidate) 6-month fixed term role for the period approx. early November 2021 to May 2022 (parental leave coverage)
  • $93,000 - $98,000 base annual salary + 10% superannuation + NFP salary packaging options (more after tax $ in your pocket!)
  • A close knit, supportive and collaborative People and Culture team
  • Flexible working arrangements, working from home and/ or from a hub (when permitted in line with Government guidelines)
  • A supportive and engaged workforce including leaders
  • Be part of an organisation that makes a real difference in the community
  • Autonomy plus a varied and rewarding role
  • 17.5% annual leave loading
  • Learning and development opportunities
  • Wellbeing initiatives such as free flu vaccines, Employee Assistance Program and Reward and Recognition Program
