About You

Lung Foundation Australia is looking for an enthusiastic and compassionate individual with a clinical background in the health or primary care sector, ideally with an understanding of the Victorian healthcare system in particular.

Although you will not have any direct reports in this role, you will need a demonstrated history of leadership, and providing mentorship and support to peers. You will also need proven project management experience, and any additional experience in strategy implementation will be highly regarded.

As such, you must display excellent interpersonal skills and high emotional intelligence, including the capacity to present to diverse groups of people and to communicate appropriately under difficult circumstances. The ability to communicate in various writing styles is also crucial.

Due to the project nature of the role, you will be working in a predominantly independent manner day to day and as such, must be a self-starter with strong initiative. However, it is equally important you be an effective team player who brings a positive approach to collaboration.

Lung Foundation Australia is seeking an individual who is passionate about, and committed to, developing meaningful and productive relationships in order to achieve national growth, raised organisational profile, and most importantly, positive outcomes for people suffering from lung disease and their loved ones.

Please note: A National Police Check and Blue Card are requirements of this position.
