Femili PNG hiring in Canberra

Femili PNG is advertising for a new position in Canberra. Till now, Femili PNG has only been operating in Lae, but it is now planning on opening an office in Port Moresby. This has led to an increased workload, and the need for this new position in our Canberra support office. Working with our Canberra-based Development Manager, the new Development Officer (DO) will provide help across the board in getting the Port Moresby office up and running, and with other ongoing tasks across the organisation.

The DO position provides an exciting opportunity to work on an innovative and pioneering project, with an organisation that is making a real difference on the ground while also contributing to the development of PNG civil society. We require an individual with practical problem solving skills, who is patient, organised and hands-on, and who combines a considered approach with a strong commitment to improving services for survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence and child abuse in Papua New Guinea. You’ll provide support to our new project as well as existing operations.

In the first instance, we are planning to fill the position on a full-time basis for six months, but part-time offers and/or availability for shorter periods will be considered for the right candidate. The position will be reviewed after this initial period.

This is a salaried position, with superannuation. Details on remuneration will be available to short-listed candidates. We are working to a tight deadline, so get your application in as soon as possible: the sooner the better, but no later than 16 March 2018. Please indicate when you can start.

A full job description is available here. More detail on Femili PNG at www.femilipng.org.
