RHSV seeks Project Officer to work on VCHA


The Royal Historical Society of Victoria is looking for a part-time project officer to work approx 1 day per week for about 7 months (April – October 2022) from our 1938 heritage-listed home on Flagstaff Gardens and a short stroll from Queen Victoria Market. The full position description can be read by clicking on the link below. 


We are looking for someone with strong administrative skills to work on the application and judging process of the Victorian Community History Awards (VCHA) which are run annually. Applications open in March and close in early July when the judging process starts which culminates in the Awards Ceremony which is held in October, History Month. The process starts slowly with a couple of peaks. In the early months as applications dribble there is probably only sufficient work to work 1 day per fortnight. Most of the applications will be submitted in early July which is a very busy couple of weeks as entries are logged, sorted and then distributed to the judges. Then there is another lull with very little work until the judging process is completed around the end of August. September and October are spent in assisting PROV prepare marketing material and in preparing for either a live event or a streamed video announcing the winners. Once the awards are announced there is a small amount of work in preparing a report and recommendations for improvements to the process, and archiving any material from the year’s work.

The role should take about 200 hours spread over April – October inclusive.

CLOSING DATE: 5pm, Tue 1 March 2022
