Availability: Business hours, Mornings, Weekends
Time involved: Varied hours
Location: Hobart

  • Ongoing position
  • 5 hours per month (12-month commitment)

The program

The Australian Red Cross International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Program seeks to prevent and alleviate suffering in times of war and conflict and promote non-violence and peace by working towards the following outcomes:

  • Australians in war and conflict understand that wars have laws and apply them;
  • Australian law and policy reflects IHL and humanitarian principles; and
  • the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement has maximum global impact in IHL, and Movement members achieve their local humanitarian objectives.

As a member of the International Red Cross Red Crescent Movement, Australian Red Cross has an obligation to promote awareness about IHL (the laws of war). In this work, the organisation is supported by IHL Advisory Committees which operate in most States and Territories and provide IHL expertise to the IHL Program.

The IHL Community Engagement Network (CEN or the Network) is an Australian Red Cross volunteer group which will provide logistical support in the organisation of IHL dissemination events and activities prioritised by both the IHL Advisory Committees and Network members.

The opportunity

This role will suit someone who has a strong interest in IHL and is passionate about disseminating IHL throughout the wider community. The ideal candidate must have experience in project or event management.

The impact

You will work with the CEN Convenor to coordinate, manage and implement IHL dissemination events and activities developed by the IHL Advisory Committee and aimed at increasing awareness of IHL, humanitarian action and the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. 

Please note: you will be required to upload a recent copy of your CV to submit this application. In addition to that, please provide a written answer to the following question: What is your motivation for being on the Tasmanian IHL Community Speakers Network?
