    • Have experience in project management — working with and managing committees, and establishing and working to a project management plan meeting clearly negotiated timeframes and within the set budget.
    • Have awareness of HIV and the role of community-based organisations in the Australian HIV response, and an understanding of the diverse populations of people with, and affected by HIV including those from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
    • Be someone who enjoys working autonomously and collaboratively within a small team — that is, the ability to take instructions and quickly implement them, work independently and be a collaborative member of a small team.
