The ideal candidate will have strong Microsoft Office skills, and enjoy building relationships with a wide range of stakeholders.  You will have experience in coordinating and prioritising a range of tasks, including project plans, reports, meetings and administrative tasks.  You will be confident working autonomously as well as within a team, be able to convert tasks into action and be good at closing the loop.


Previous experience in a project support/coordination role within the health or government sector would be highly beneficial.
