The Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia is an equal opportunity employer comprised of professionals dedicated to supporting and advancing the social sciences in Australia.

Program & Administration Officer

Generous conditions, flexible and meaningful work, and great team environment. Full-time, part-time, or job-share.

The Academy is seeking an energetic and experienced administrator to join its friendly and professional team.

Our ideal candidate (or candidates, if interested in a job-share arrangement) will be someone with solid administrative experience and an efficient approach to coordinating multiple committees, diaries, programs, systems, contracts and reporting requirements across a busy not-for-profit organisation. They will be a consummate organiser; someone who thrives on detail and has the ability to quickly get up to speed with projects and processes and to identify and act on opportunities to improve organisational systems.

As the Academy’s virtual ‘front desk’ for members and other stakeholders, the successful candidate will have a friendly and professional approach and genuinely enjoy interacting with lots of different people. They will also benefit from a background or interest in the social sciences and in the many social policy and equity issues that the Academy works on day to day.
