The Opportunity

As the Senior Program Coordinator, you will assist in delivering the National Indigenous Disaster Resilience Project (NIDR), a project within Fire to Flourish at the Monash Sustainable Development Institute. NIDR is a multi-year nationally focussed project seeking to understand the experiences of Indigenous people who have direct experience living through, and recovering from, disasters. By working closely with the Project Leader, you will engage with Indigenous communities and key stakeholders, and have the capability to work with people who have experienced trauma.

You will provide a range of complex research coordination, project management and administrative services to support the delivery of a transdisciplinary research program, and be a key liaison point between community, academic, practice and government networks, organisations and agencies on project related issues.

This position will see you:

  • Contribute to the design, organisation, implementation and facilitation of participatory workshops, focus groups, surveys and other forms of consultation involving Indigenous communities, academics, government agencies, non-government organisations, local councils, and Indigenous peak bodies
  • Support the organisation, facilitation and delivery of community consultations and workshops, seminars, and conferences, and leading relevant logistical and operational activities
  • Project management and administrative functions primarily connected with the National Indigenous Disaster Resilience Project

In this position, you will be an integral part of the Fire To Flourish team, providing support to projects and events and undertaking a variety of general research and administrative duties. As the successful applicant, you must be a strong ambassador for Fire to Flourish, representing it by professionally and effectively engaging with a wide range of individuals and organisations who contribute to the Program’s success.
