You’ll be exposed to a wide range of educational formats including live educational events (e.g., face-to-face clinical conferences and symposia, regular webinars, patient forums, high school training workshops) and developing content (e.g., podcasts, videos, interactive learning modules, patient resources).

• Your strong written communication skills are matched with excellent attention to detail.

• You have strong administrative skills, including a basic understanding of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

• Your excellent interpersonal skills enable you to work comfortably with a variety of stakeholders, including senior clinicians, sponsors, patients and vendors.

• You have an eagerness to learn a variety of skills and are happy to pitch in to help your colleagues when needed.

• You take initiative and can work with minimal supervision.

• You are highly organised and have a perfectionist ethic.

• You are able to travel interstate and work outside of usual business hours, when needed.

• You have a Working with Children Check (or be willing to get one to accept the position).

Nice to have, but not essential:

• You have been involved with hosting live online events (e.g., webinars)

• You have basic experience in video and audio editing, and graphic design (using Adobe Creative Suite), or a willingness to learn.

• You have a passion for health or medicine.

This is an outstanding opportunity to develop your career and skills in a globally recognised medical research institute that is making a real difference to lives of patients with melanoma. Knowing your role is contributing to improving outcomes for cancer patients is deeply satisfying.
