CURRENT RECRUITMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Meridian values diversity in the workplace and encourages applications from suitably qualified Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and other sexuality and gender diverse people.
All recruitment is based on proven experience, qualifications and/or training and the person’s potential to most efficiently undertake the responsibilities of the position. As an LGBTIQ+ peer-based organisation, and an HIV service agency, we recognise that LGBTIQ+ people and people with HIV/AIDS bring unique perspectives, skills and knowledge that are important to Meridian’s work. Meridian, therefore, promotes the recruitment and continued employment of LGBTIQ+ people and people living with HIV/AIDS.

STUDENTS PLACEMENTS AND INTERNSHIPS
The ACT is fortunate to have so many high-quality learning institutions. We value the opportunity to assist students at a variety of levels across a range of disciplines to gain experience of a functioning workplace as well as increasing understanding of how a community and HIV organisation works.
We are particularly interested in working with people who are passionate about working with communities impacted by HIV, including but not limited to the LGBTIQ+ community, sex workers, people from high prevalence countries and people who inject drugs.
Meridian can work with students looking for experience in Counselling, Social Work, Health Promotion, Community Development, Policy Development and Business Studies. All student placements and interns are required to become volunteers of Meridian to do their placements.
We encourage students who would like to work with Meridian to approach us with their learning requirements. You can contact us on 02 6257 2855 or by emailing us at email@example.com
