An exciting opportunity exists to join a team at the forefront of advancing LGBTIQ+ rights. The Office for LGBTIQ+ Affairs exists to make Canberra the most LGBTIQ+ welcoming and inclusive city in Australia. Our vision is for a fair and inclusive Canberra – which we work towards by focusing on equality for all LGBTIQ+ Canberrans, their families and communities. As part of the Capital of Equality action plan, we are taking action on several urgent priorities in the next 12 months to protect LGBTIQ+ people from discrimination and harm. This includes leading work to ban conversion therapies and protect the human rights of intersex people in the context of medical interventions. We are looking to match the right candidates in both permanent and temporary opportunities. As Assistant Director, you’ll assist with the day to day management of the Office and have the opportunity to directly influence the broader work of a small, committed and highly effective team. We require people who are passionate about LGBTIQ+ rights and who will contribute energy, enthusiasm, adaptability and lots of good ideas to the team. The ACT Public Service supports workforce diversity and is committed to creating an inclusive workplace. As part of this commitment, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people with disability, culturally diverse people and those who identify as LGBTIQ are encouraged to apply.
Eligibility/Other requirements: Qualifications and/or experience in law, public policy and research, and/or LGBTIQ+ interests are highly desirable.
Note: Permanent and temporary opportunities available. This position will be moving to a new workplace designed for activity-based working (ABW) in 2020. Under ABW arrangements, officers will not have a designated workstation/desk. Selection may be based on application and referee reports only. An order of merit will be established from this selection process and may be used to fill future identical vacancies over the next 12 months.
