- Fantastic opportunity to join a transformational organisation
- Flexible and supportive team environment
Ambulance Victoria (AV) seeks to appoint a collaborative and driven person to join its newly established Equality & Workplace Reform Division to coordinate the reintroduction of, and support, a network of Contact Officers (trusted peers who employees and first responders can reach out to for advice and guidance if they’ve experienced or witnessed unlawful or harmful conduct). The Coordinator will play a key role in the execution of high value, vital education and support programs improving AV’s program of work to create a safe, fair, and inclusive workplace, focusing on the culture of workplace equality and safety outcomes for all employees and patients.
Reporting to the Senior Policy and Research Manager, the Coordinator, Equality Contact Officer will play a key role in design and delivery of equality and workplace reform by creating and monitoring central service and administration standards that reduce barriers and support the additional and peer-based pathway. The Coordinator will also play a key role in identifying and reducing risks of workplace harm, to support efforts to prevent workplace harm before it occurs.
This role requires exceptional stakeholder and relationship management skills, including building effective frameworks for Contact Officer support including connection to counselling and debriefing services. There is a focus on maintaining relationships across the division to work collaboratively with key internal and external stakeholders to achieve Equality and Workplace Reform goals and objectives. An understanding of victim-centred and trauma-informed responses, as well as key equal opportunity laws, is highly desirable.
The ability to challenge and improve process and thinking will also be important attributes for success.
