Excitingly, we are on the hunt to build our team with even more passionate, skilled and driven people to continue to develop our high-performance culture and expand the reach and impact of batyr.

You know how to connect with people, and love supporting the people around you to succeed. You’re super organised, have a brain for planning and logistics, and take a positive approach to solving problems. Mostly, you want to make sure everyone gets around having positive conversations about mental health, and make the students at UniSA feel part of the batyr herd! As with all of our employees, you will have an active interest in tackling the stigma in young people around mental health, and are aligned to batyr’s five values; empathy, inclusive, balance, positive and bold.

The role will play an important part in nurturing and developing batyr’s relationships with key stakeholders within the university, and in the success of the partnership more broadly. This role will assist in the direction of batyr’s core university program at UniSA, identifying needs and helping the team continue to improve how we do things at batyr’s partner universities.
