Where you'll be working
The role of the Centre for Aboriginal Health is to support the health system to better engage and listen to the needs and aspirations of Aboriginal people so that their health and wellbeing is improved. Often this is about helping the system to better understand the social and cultural determinants of health, how past Government practices impact on people today and how Aboriginal peoples’ experience of education, housing, employment, racism and discrimination impact on access and utilisation of health services.

The vision of the Centre for Aboriginal Health is to work in partnership to build a strength based, culturally safe and responsive health system, where Aboriginal people have the same health outcomes as non-Aboriginal people.


What you'll be doing

  • Collating and analysing data using Excel
  • Liaising, consulting, and working collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders.
  • Preparing high quality written advice in the form of reports, briefs, policy etc. to respond to internal and external requests to the Ministry of Health in a timely manner
  • Research
  • Working as part of a team

How to apply
All applicants must review the role description and apply by submitting an up-to-date resume (up to 5 pages) and cover letter (1-2 pages) AND a response to the two target questions below


  1. Please describe your understanding of Aboriginal social, political, and cultural issues, cultural safety and applying such knowledge to the design and delivery of projects. What are the key strategies you have used to embed cultural safety in projects you have developed?
  2. Please describe a project you managed or developed? What was your approach, how did you engage your stakeholders, did you achieve your goals on time and within budget? Did you experience any resistance and how did you manage it?
