Senior Project Officer – Health Sector Strengthening

AGMP is offering a unique position leading a health-sector governance strengthening project in partnership with the Aboriginal Medical Services Alliance NT (AMSANT) – the peak body for Aboriginal community controlled health services in the NT. Funded through a Northern Territory Government Closing the Gap Sector Strengthening Grant, this is the second year of a 2-year project.

Over the past 12 months AGMP has worked with AMSANT members (Aboriginal community controlled health services) to co-design a good governance manual for the NT Aboriginal community controlled sector. The pilot manual is now complete – providing plain language, visual, culturally appropriate and sector-specific governance information for board members of Aboriginal community controlled health services. Over the next 12 months we are seeking a Senior Project Officer to:

  • pilot the health sector governance manual as a training tool – working with remote Aboriginal health service boards to test the content through practical workshops and training sessions
  • use feedback gathered to refine the manual
  • develop complimentary governance tools and templates for boards to use alongside the manual, in workshops and training
  • build strategic partnerships and secure ongoing investment into the provision of dedicated governance support for the sector in the long term.

We are looking for a self-motivated person with high-level communication skills, the ability to work autonomously and meet tight deadlines. You will have a strong understanding of two-way governance, the Aboriginal community controlled health sector and experience in training and/or resource development for Aboriginal organisations. You are willing to travel remotely throughout the NT and build strong relationships with the AMSANT and their member services in the Aboriginal community-controlled health sector.
