You will have accountability for developing and integrating diverse and inclusive people initiatives across Beyond Blue and generating valuable workforce insights and analytics to guide senior stakeholders including the Executive to inform strategic people priorities, improve productivity and enhance the employee experience.  You will deliver sustainable change and value through a deep understanding of the people levers to drive change both strategically and operationally.

Ideally you will be tertiary qualified with a bachelor’s degree or post graduate qualifications in Business, Human Resources Management, Leadership or Diversity and Inclusion, or other relevant discipline.
