Each year the RHSV engages a project officer/s to work on History Month (October) and the Victorian Community History Awards (the key event of History Month). Both projects require similar skills and the fee is $5,000 per project. Both projects could easily be worked concurrently by one person or they could be handled by two different individuals.

The closing date for applications is 5pm Monday 24 April 2023. With a mooted start around Monday 15 May 2023 – see disclaimer below. The projects run until the end of October with some report reporting in early November.

Please note that the Victorian Community History Awards are waiting on their funding to be approved in this year’s State Budget which comes down in early May so at this stage we are, strictly speaking, calling for Expressions of Interest in that role as we will not be able to confirm the position until we know that funding has been approved.

The position descriptions are linked below – please remember to indicate whether your application is for one or both of the positions.
