Thank you for your interest in employment at Queensland Positive People. We are a team connected by our shared values regarding the response to HIV in Queensland, and foster a respectful workplace with high regard for diversity.
The primary purpose of the Peer Navigator role is to provide client-centred support to PLHIV who are newly diagnosed or re-engaging in care. This will require the delivery of highly structured time-limited interventions that aim to foster personal resilience and improve health literacy. The delivery method of these interventions will primarily involve one-on-one client interactions as well as the coordination and facilitation of group workshops. A key aspect of this role will be to work under the guidance of the Peer Navigation Coordinator to provide an individualised, outcome focused service that offers seamless care coordination with other Life+ services.
Please note, this is a casual role, offering approx. 15 hours per client engagement which could be scheduled over 1-4 weeks, based on the client’s needs. The number of client engagements is dependent upon the number of new referrals in your area that match your background and demographic profile. This role is designed to be flexible, to fit around other commitments such as work, study, family or other activities.
We are looking for PLHIV from diverse demographic and cultural backgrounds, such as women, heterosexual men, trans men and women, CALD, co-infection with HEP-C, younger and older MSM and those with lived experience of AOD and mental health are encouraged to apply.
We are also seeking applicants from regional locations including Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Rockhampton, Bundaberg, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Toowoomba and the greater Brisbane area. Interviews will be conducted in these locations from 5th to 22nd September. Successful applicants would need to be available to travel to Brisbane for training during the week of 26-30th September.
Applications close Sunday 28th August
