You love attention to detail, you are confident with IT, you excel in a complex environment, you love responsibility, you love to impact nationally, you love to be relied on, you prefer a tiny team!

Meaningful Ageing Australia is a membership-based not for profit, focussed on improving the lives of older people. We are currently mainly working with the aged care sector, with 80 diverse member organisations nationally (and growing). We have a small, dedicated team who are largely part time and/or based outside of Melbourne, as well as students and volunteers. We produce practical resources and run education to assist our members with high quality pastoral and spiritual care; and advocate with government and key agencies about the importance of spirituality – meaning, purpose and connectedness – for people to thrive. We work with a contemporary understanding of spirituality: it may or may not have a faith expression.

We are located in beautiful Parkville, co-located with the National Ageing Research Institute. The parrots will greet you on your way to the office. Our work environment is friendly and professional, but without corporate bells and whistles. You will have a great laptop; and there is excellent coffee and public transport within 5 minutes walk.
