About You

To be successful in this role you will need a demonstrated understanding of digital health initiatives, with experience in a similar Public Health organisation highly regarded. Any qualifications in Information Technology or relevant areas will be beneficial, but are not essential, provided you have a strong background in solutions architecture, data governance, and business analysis/improvement related roles.

Straddling multiple disciplines, you will be highly flexible and able to adapt quickly to shifting priorities or unscheduled changes in funding or community needs. It's crucial that you are both a strategic thinker, but also willing to 'roll up your sleeves' and guide a project delivery end-to-end with exceptional attention to detail. You’ll be willing and able to help out where and when needed as part of a strong collaborative culture.

Whilst you won't have any direct reports, you will be a key member of the senior leadership team, and therefore need to be able to lead by example, encouraging teamwork, acknowledging input from others, and celebrating their achievements. You'll be capable of presenting technical material to non-technical audiences, tailoring your approach as needed.

Your ability to identify areas for improvement and genuine passion for innovation will help you to drive real change and support better health outcomes for HNC's communities. With strong problem-solving skills and a commitment to evidence-based approaches, you'll be comfortable self-directing and keen to really make this role your own.

Please note: You will need a current 'C' class Driver's License, and be willing to undertake a criminal history check.

About the Benefits

This is a unique opportunity to be involved in a diverse range of projects and truly make your mark with an organisation that's genuinely passionate about making change and innovating. Staff are seen as individuals, not numbers, and encouraged to have a voice and be involved in supporting the organisation and the communities they serve.

With the freedom to identify key areas and work towards solutions, you'll not only enjoy the variety this role entails, but be able to finish each day knowing that you've made a genuine, tangible difference to North Coast communities.

Healthy North Coast is offering an attractive remuneration up to $109,000 plus super, based on your skills and experience. They also offer salary packaging up to $16,000, plus additional meals, entertainment and holiday packaging up to $2,500 per annum. Relocation assistance is negotiable depending on your needs.

Flexible working arrangements are available, where possible, including current work from home arrangements in place due to COVID-19. It's a fantastic time to join, with a recent restructure to support their already fantastic workplace culture. HNC are genuinely committed to ensuring their staff really do enjoy coming to work.

Bring your problem-solving skills and digital health/IT experience to a key, newly-created role with an innovative not-for-profit organisation — APPLY NOW!
