Job Description

  • The Society of Jesus in Australia
  • Lead Communications – Historic Organisation
  • Influence & Engage to Strengthen & Optimise

Due to continued and future growth, The Society of Jesus in Australia (also known as the Jesuits) are looking to appoint an experienced and dynamic communications leader to further strengthen and optimise engagement with their loyal members, and beyond.

This newly created role will not only provide strategic advice and counsel to the leadership team, it will be responsible for creating a shared vision as a contemporary and relevant organisation, together with positioning individuals, as a leading voice for social justice in Australia.

Adopting an integrated approach, this position will be the custodian of brand and reputation, issues and crisis management and above all, raising awareness and understanding of what the organisation does and offers to communities throughout Australia.

With the quest to optimise the effectiveness of digital channels, to reach and engage, this position will be a catalyst to establishing and building reporting, guidelines, policies, and governance that will further contribute to the organisation’s high performing culture and reputation.  Whilst this role will ensure the organisation effectively communicates and engages with members of the community and beyond, experience and understanding of media landscape will be required.

As a communications leader, you are known for driving actions to enable outcomes, as well as maintaining key stakeholder relationships, facilitating collaboration, and establishing and chairing a bespoke Communications Advisory Committee.

Tertiary qualified, and with an openness of the Catholic faith, you arrive with demonstrable experience in developing sophisticated communications and stakeholder engagement strategies, but equally managing their implementation and delivery.

This is a rare and unique opportunity to lead, shape, build and optimise this valued and relied upon function.  This position is based in Melbourne at the Australian Province of the Society of Jesus.

It is kindly requested your application is complete with a cover letter outlining your candidacy for this position.
