Current Vacancies

First Nations Listening and Truth Telling Project Consultant

ACON is currently seeking a consultant with experience (lived and professional) in working with LGBTQ+SB First Nations communities to lead ACON’s First Nations Listening and Truth Telling Project.

The project seeks to strengthen dialogue, promote collaboration, and inform the development of ACON’s programs and services for LGBTQ+ Sistergirl and Brotherboy Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in NSW.  

The aim is for ACON to conduct, and participate in, a community listening and truth telling process across NSW to better inform ACON of the health needs and priorities of LGBTQ+SB Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people so we can better serve these communities. The outcomes of the project will inform decisions about appropriate governance structures to strengthen strategic directions in the delivery of programs and services for LGBTQ+SB Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across the state. 

Description of the tender for consultants interested in the Project: 

The project will consist of two separate phases, and applicants are invited to submit an EOI for one, or both phases, depending on their professional and lived experience: 

Phase 1 will involve the conducting of a listening and truth telling process designed to enable meaningful listening, including the convening and hosting of community meetings across NSW, aimed at improving ACON’s understanding of the key health priorities of LGBTQ+SB Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, including any who may be living with HIV.  

Phase 2 will include the hosting of strategic meetings across the sector with experts, researchers, funders, and other relevant stakeholders aimed at engaging ACON, and the sector more broadly, with the issues raised in the initial phase, and facilitating discussion on strategies to address them. 

ACON welcomes any interested applicant to propose a unique approach to the process of each phase, as we understand the journey through a listening and truth telling process must be driven by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander design. We welcome innovative approaches, and we encourage interested applicants to engage with us to discuss their ideas. 

How to apply: 

If you are a prospective applicant, please first register your potential interest by sending an email to policy@acon.org.au to briefly introduce yourself to us, regardless of whether you go on to submit a full expression of interest or not, by Monday 8 July 2024. Include a brief overview of your experience. We want to know who you are, even if you don’t end up putting in and EOI.

Then, when you’re ready to submit a completed expression of interest, follow the instructions here and submit all documents to policy@acon.org.au.

The deadline for submitting a completed expression of interest is COB Monday 5 August 2024.
