Communications Officer - Content Development

Health Issues Centre

About us

We may be a small team, but we punch above our weight. We are in the serious business of transforming the health system so that it better serves the people it was built for.

We’re an innovative not for profit that delivers skills-based training, consultancy services and research to clients across the health industry. Our goal is to create a better healthcare system that serves people, not institutions. We do this by listening; through mediating crowd conversations, extracting insights from the white noise, and using human centred design to create people-centred solutions.

about you

We are looking for someone to join our growing team in the position of Comms Officer with a focus on content development. Of course we’re interested in your expertise (we expect you to be awesome at writing a variety of content for different platforms, including our newsletters and website, as well as producing opinion pieces and media releases, and developing posts and creative campaigns using social media channels) but we’re more interested in your insights, self-critical awareness, empathy, enthusiasm and ability to make us slap our foreheads and say, “Now why didn’t I think of that?”.

Respectful, transparent, communicative, collaborative, accountable are not aspirational, just business as usual. So, what distinguishes us as a team?


We don’t micromanage – we assume you know what you’re doing and that if you don’t you’ll work it out.


We set you up to over-achieve and help you up when you stumble


Failure isn’t an option. It’s a necessity. Just learn from it don’t cover it up.


 If it’s not fixed – we will break it. And build something that does work.

A position description is attached.

All candidates who have applied previously do not need to apply again; your details are still on file.

We know we’re not the right option for everyone but we’re only looking for the exceptional.

Applications close on the advertised date, although interviews may commence before this time.

Health Issues Centre actively promotes diversity and inclusion and is an equal opportunity workplace. We welcome applicants from all diverse backgrounds, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and people with disabilities. Flexible work options and salary packaging benefits are available when you join this amazing not-for-profit organisation.
