      • Generous employment conditions

ACOSS is the leading, national advocate for action to reduce poverty and inequality and the peak body for the community services sector in Australia. It works at the national level to influence change to federal policies and laws, collaborating with its members and enabling the voice of people directly affected by disadvantage to be heard. With an uncompromising commitment to human rights and equality, ACOSS is dynamic, determined and strategic.

Working in our fast-paced environment, you will enjoy being part of a dedicated team who know how to have fun as well as work hard. We all appreciate the important work that ACOSS does and like being part of it. We offer generous employment conditions as well as the opportunity to participate in a mentoring program.

Your New Role

As Diary Manager, you will manage all aspects of the diary of the CEO. Your excellent communication skills and interpersonal skills will be fully utilised as you act as the principal point of contact for key ACOSS stakeholders including politicians, organisational members and Board Directors. Day-to-day you will receive and process invitations for the CEO and Senior Team, coordinating responses, diarising confirmed meetings, and ensuring attendees have all they need ahead of meetings. In addition you will coordinate ACOSS’ key political and member meetings and provide high level executive support to two Deputy CEOs (job share).
