- Join a newly established division with imprimatur to drive sweeping workplace reform
- Apply psychological principles to initiatives to create a safe, fair and inclusive organisation
- Provide expert advice to support the workforce through a period of significant change
AV seeks to appoint a talented and dynamic Organisational Psychologist to join its newly established Equality & Workplace Reform Division. This is a pivotal position which initially will support a collaborative and integrated organisational response to the independent review into workplace undertaken by the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission (VEOHRC). As an authoritative expert, the Organisational Psychologist will provide advice and will influence how AV can make meaningful change to prevent and respond effectively to discrimination, sexual harassment, bullying and victimisation, with a view to creating a safe, speak up culture where all parts of the workforce feel supported.
Reporting to the Director of Workplace Reform, the Organisational Psychologist will review structures, assess capacity and readiness for change, and develop appropriate responses in partnership with key stakeholder groups. Essential elements of the role include ensuring application of industry best practice and delivering effective and highly ethical change management support.
The ideal candidate will be a qualified psychologist registered with Ahpra and will bring advanced knowledge of organisational leadership, equality and reform theories. Resilient, empathetic and comfortable challenging the status quo, the incumbent will be known for having excellent facilitation skills and helping people move through change in a positive and constructive way. Experience working with a range of emergency response, health or 24/7 service delivery industries and organisations will be seen as advantageous. Demonstrating strong interpersonal skills, the new Organisational Psychologist will be an inspiring leader who has a strong ability to persuade the most entrenched operators.
