Brotherhood of St Laurence: Cross Cultural Consultancy Coordinator (Melbourne)

An exciting opportunity exists within the Brotherhood of St Laurence Multicultural Communities Team to drive the expansion of its cross cultural consultancy.

Given our extensive specialist expertise in the multicultural sector, the Brotherhood plays a role in fostering culturally-responsive practice and/or culturally tailoring material to be more accessible to multicultural communities. This takes the form of both fee-for-service cross cultural consultancy as well as training, as a way to build the capacity of mainstream services to be more culturally responsive to the communities they serve. It currently takes the form of training to internal and external teams in their own workplaces and/or at Brotherhood sites. Our training workshops are intimate groups with interactive activities aiming to build on existing knowledge and skills, delivered by staff with first hand practical experience and we are keen to build a pool of community leaders with diverse cultural backgrounds to co-facilitate training, adding a further unique dimension to our training. The triple focus of this role is to undertake business development to drive the expansion of MCT’s suite of cross-cultural consultancy, as well as play a part in both the content creation and the delivery of its training.

You will be a highly motivated and organised person with lots of initiative, chutzpah and motivation for conveying your passion of making our community more friendly and responsive to multicultural communities. You’ve got well developed sector networks, as well as experience in writing and pitching proposals. Together with having a reputation for facilitating dynamic and interactive training, you’ve ideally got heaps of wisdom you can share from your own career in working with people from refugee and migrant backgrounds. The growth of this enterprise’s potential is only limited by your networking, cold-calling and business development skills. We would love for your role to grow with the enterprise.

This is a part time, maximum term position of 10 months (with the possibility of extension) working 22.8 hours per week.

Salary will be in the range of $63,448 to $69,420 per annum (pro rata), based on skills and experience plus superannuation. Attractive salary packaging provisions are available to increase take home pay.
