About MoneyMob Talkabout

MoneyMob Talkabout is a not-for-profit organisation delivering a range of financial and community support programs with and for people in remote Indigenous communities.

Our Money Hub in the APY Lands, which has operated since 2012, provides a one-stop shop for local community members to interact with the broader economy in a safe and supportive environment. Teams also visit other communities in South Australia from Pipalyatjarra to Indulkana providing services on an outreach basis.

MoneyMob Talkabout is actively committed to being an Aboriginal run and led service, as such we strongly encourage experienced and qualified Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to apply for this position.

About the Future Sustainability Education Project

In April 2020, MoneyMob was chosen by the South Australian Government to deliver the Future Sustainability Education Project, which is aimed at providing energy education and support to Anangu Communities in Yalata, Oak Valley and the APY Lands as they transition to paying for electricity supply. This change is being introduced from 2021.

About the Opportunity

MoneyMob is looking for a Project Support Admin Officer to join their Future Sustainability Education Project team, based in Alice Springs, NT on a part-time (0.8 FTE) fixed term contract to 31 December 2022.

Reporting to the Future Sustainability Project Manager, you will be responsible for providing a range of project administration support duties to the Project Manager and Trainer/Mentors as well as assisting the wider MoneyMob team.

Your day to day duties will include, but will not be limited to:

  • Assisting with remote travel and community work logistics;
  • Using project management software and ensuring that information is current and up-to-date;
  • Answering project enquiries and providing general energy advice via telephone;

About You

To be considered for this position you must have prior experience in a general administration/office support role. While not essential, any experience working with Aboriginal communities will be considered highly desirable, as will any ability to speak and understand Pitjantjatjara/Yankunytjatjara.

A self-starter, you will be confident working completely autonomously at times in support of remote project members, demonstrating the initiative necessary to remain productive under your own self-direction. You will also provide administrative support to other Money Mob staff and teams as required including covering office reception, answering phones and undertaking additional administration tasks.

As the link between remote communities and the Future Sustainability Education Project, your ability to communicate effectively and clearly, and quickly establish rapport with diverse people from varying cultural backgrounds, creating positive experiences in the process, will go a long way to ensuring your success.

Operating as the glue connecting the project team, your ability to prioritise the success of the team as a whole will be key as you fulfill a varied range of project support functions. Moreover, you will be flexible and adaptable, able to go above and beyond to meet changing project circumstances and COVID restrictions, should they present themselves.

Most importantly, you'll be highly empathetic and culturally competent; able to understand the needs and concerns of the communities you will be communicating with.

Please Note: Employment will be subject to a National Police Clearance. 

About the Benefits

This is an incredible opportunity to bring your skills to a passionate not-for-profit organisation supporting some of the most remote communities in Australia.

In return for your hard work and dedication, you will receive an attractive remuneration circa $64,000 (pro rata) plus super and salary sacrificing options, and a GREAT range of additional benefits to help you enjoy life within the local community including:

  • 6 weeks annual leave;
