Ninti One is a professional services firm that works collaboratively with communities, relevant agencies and businesses to achieve social and economic development. Ninti One draws on its long history of working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and has developed the capacity to translate learning from this experience to a range of development contexts. The National Best Practice Unit Tackling Indigenous Smoking (NBPU TIS) is funded by the Department of Health to support regional tobacco grant recipients across Australia in their efforts to reduce the rates of smoking among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Based in Adelaide, but with extensive national travel required, the Program Manager is responsible for the day-to-day management of the Unit, including all operating and outreach activities and liaising with NBPU consortium partners and grant recipients. The successful candidate will supervise a medium-sized team including Project, Communications and Support Officers and work collaboratively with other Ninti One corporate support staff and consortium partners to achieve the project work plan.
Applications are encouraged from appropriately qualified professionals with a project management, community development, policy development or related background. Demonstrated experience working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the cross-cultural skills required to communicate effectively and sensitively will be essential. People of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent are strongly encouraged to apply. The successful candidate must be a non-smoker. While Adelaide is the preferred location, flexibility may be negotiated for the right candidate.
