Policy & Projects Officers – 2 Positions

The two persons we are seeking will join a team of passionate individuals who are committed to making Australia a more inclusive and supportive country for young people, and to building a stronger youth sector.
As Australia’s non-government youth affairs peak body, the Australian Youth Affairs Coalition (AYAC) provides an independent national voice for young people and the sector that supports them through advocacy, lobbying, research, media representation and professional support for the youth sector.

The two persons we are seeking will join a team of passionate individuals who are committed to making Australia a more inclusive and supportive country for young people, and to building a stronger youth sector.

The Policy and Projects Officers are responsible for liaising with and supporting our stakeholders including AYAC members, young people and the broader community sector, and to developing and advocating on AYAC’s policy positions in relation to youth affairs in the federal jurisdiction.

One position will report to the Deputy Director (Young People) and the other position to the Deputy Director (Youth Sector), and will be part of a small team. Some inter and intra-state travel will be required for these roles.
