About Us

Children’s Ground is working to create an environment where families realise their aspirations for the next generation of children to be free from trauma and suffering, enjoy equity and safety, be able to grow into adulthood happy and healthy, and have agency over their social, cultural, political and economic life.

About the Job

With a focus on maternal and child health, this position will be responsible for supporting young mothers through pregnancy and building knowledge and confidence in parenting; assisting with referrals and support to access existing clinical and support services; delivering and supporting sexual health education and pre-pregnancy knowledge, particularly with young people; and providing targeted childhood health promotion alongside the broader Children’s Ground team.

The Health Team is committed to creating and delivering responses to population health needs with the local community. The team is integrated within the full Children’s Ground model and will work collaboratively with internal and with external partners. This position will engage First nation communities in the Darwin region and Marlkawo – West Arnhem Land.

About You

We are seeking an innovative, suitably qualified and experienced Health Promotion Specialist with a specific focus on child and maternal health. You will have experience working with First Nations communities and an understanding of the effects of colonisation, disempowerment and intergenerational trauma and a demonstrated commitment to social justice.

To be successful in this position, you will have strong relationship, networking and communication skills – both verbal and written, have a collaborative approach to work and be a self-starter who thrives in an environment that is ambiguous and complex and be a systemic thinker.
