The Atlantic Fellows for Social Equity (AFSE) is an Indigenous-led social change mid-career fellowship program established at the University of Melbourne in 2016 and funded by the Atlantic Philanthropies. Informed by Indigenous perspectives and grounded in Indigenous community engagement, the program is designed to support social change leaders and collaborative leadership. AFSE is one of seven Atlantic Fellows Programs around the world, supported by Atlantic Institute at Oxford University.

The University seeks an Executive Director who will be responsible for the overall management of AFSE, and who brings a depth and breadth of Indigenous knowledge, and experience working with Indigenous people and communities. Leading and coordinating the Program and Team, the Executive Director will guide the development and implementation of strategic, operational and fiscal planning and delivery of the AFSE Program.

This is a broad and exciting role with responsibilities ranging from the development, delivery and regular review of curricula for the Program, to oversight of the Program’s administration, fiscal integrity and reporting requirements to ensure the sustainability of AFSE over the next 20 years and beyond.  In addition, the ED will create a supportive environment for AFSE staff, and bring exemplary communication and stakeholder engagement skills to the role.

The Executive Director will maintain strong relationships across the University, with AFSE Fellows and Senior Fellows, AFSE Program partners, The Atlantic Philanthropies, Atlantic Institute, the University’s Indigenous Knowledge Institute and the broader network of Atlantic Fellows programs globally. They will lead the AFSE team in actively engaging communities of Indigenous knowledge holders (at a local, regional and global level), government, industry, philanthropic organisations, not-for-profits and academics.
