Relationship Manager, Pride in Health + Wellbeing

Join the Pride in Health + Wellbeing team and help Australian health, wellbeing and human service organisations deliver best practice LGBTQ inclusive care.

Pride in Health + Wellbeing is an ACON Pride Inclusion Program, specifically designed to assist organisations of all levels with making their services more LGBTQ inclusive to break down the barriers the community face in accessing services, and to eventually improve the overall health of sexuality and gender diverse communities.

Pride in Health + Wellbeing sits within ACON’s Pride Inclusion Programs alongside Pride in Diversity and Pride in Sport.

ACON is Australia’s largest LGBTQ health organisation, focusing on inclusion, diversity, health and wellbeing, HIV prevention and support services. We are a fiercely proud community organisation. For our entire history, the work of ACON has been designed by and for our communities. We provide a range of services designed to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities.

About you:

  • Highly engaged, motivated, and proactive
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Passionate about LGBTQ diversity and inclusion in the health and wellbeing sector
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team
  • Exceptional influencing and stakeholder management experience

Reporting to the Pride in Health + Wellbeing National Program Manager, our new Pride in Health + Wellbeing Relationship Manager will have a strong track record in relationship and stakeholder management and support as a trusted advisor.

This role will initially be a 0.6 FTE position, working three days per week, for a 1year contract. It is anticipated that as the program grows the role will also extend to 1.0 FTE (full time) with possibility of a contract extension beyond the original 1 year.

This is a busy and highly rewarding role for a person with an interest in inclusive care, removing barriers to accessing services and the health of the LGBTQ community. We encourage people with lived experience of mental health, alcohol and drug use, family violence, homelessness, receiving disability support, or other care services to apply. We also encourage Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people, as well as people who are gender or sexuality diverse to apply.
