We are seeking a Storyteller to develop and run a range of creative writing and storytelling workshops, from our one-off bookmaking and script-writing workshops through to term-length programs. S/he will both deliver already devised programs and be involved in developing their own programs tailored to the diverse needs of our students. Engagements could be at our centre in Parramatta, but are more often in schools and community groups across Sydney and Western Sydney.
A completed or nearly-completed teaching qualification is essential, as is experience working with young people, ideally from diverse backgrounds. We are looking for someone with a passion for words and for improving the lives of marginalised young people. The ability to be creative and adaptable under pressure is also crucial.
The full position description and selection criteria is attached HERE.
We strongly encourage people from Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, or culturally diverse backgrounds, to apply.
Please send a cover letter addressing the selection criteria, your resume and two referees you are happy for us to contact to firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing Date for Applications: Our intention is to appoint someone to the role as soon as possible. Applications will be assessed as they are received.
