Beyond Blue’s vision is that all people in Australia achieve their best possible mental health. Our mission is to work with the community to improve mental health and prevent suicide. We aim to achieve this by:
Beyond Blue’s values are Collaboration, Respect, Enthusiasm, Excellence, Innovation and Integrity.
In 2020 Beyond Blue, with delivery partners headspace, Early Childhood Australia and Emerging Minds, established a bushfire response program for early learning services and schools affected by the 2019 – 2020 bushfires. The Be You Bushfire Response Program builds the capacity of educators in early learning services and schools to support disaster recovery and resilience for their learning communities. The BRP program works in close alignment with key state government and service providers and other stakeholders in bushfire affected areas to identify needs and opportunities for collaboration, promote communication and a coordinated approach to supporting disaster recovery.
The Project Advisor will play a critical role in the last five months of the Be You Bushfire Response Project, liaising with stakeholders, take on the day-to-day accountability for the delivery of contracted project deliverables as well as using their expertise to write reports for both external and internal audiences including analysis and interpretation of data. The focus of this role will also include overseeing some key activities as part of the Bushfire Response Program transition to core Be You.
The appointee will have experience in project management and data management and ideally have previous experience involving program services delivery. Your high attention to detail and exceptional organisational skills, together with your sound interpersonal and verbal communication skills will underpin your ability to collaborate with and support others in the pursuit of common goals.
This is a terrific opportunity to work within an organisation that is in a growth phase and be part of shaping the future outcomes for the community.
