Interested in working for the Epilepsy Foundation?

We’re searching for three new staff members to assist us with the Epilepsy Smart Australia Pilot Program:

  • ICT Project Manager
  • Project Coordinator
  • Administration Officer

The Epilepsy Foundation is responsible for managing the 4-year Epilepsy Smart Australia Pilot Program. The purpose of the Program is to develop and test a national framework for delivering high quality and consistent information, support, services and training for people living with epilepsy and the communities in which they live.

  • The Federal Government has committed $5m per year for four years to support the development of a nationally consistent framework for the delivery of evidence-based, high quality and consistent services for people living with epilepsy. 
  • This initiative is known as the ‘Epilepsy Smart Australia Pilot Program’ and will be managed by the Epilepsy Foundation.   
  • Services will be delivered in partnership with relevant organisations in order to achieve national reach.  
  • The Epilepsy Foundation will work collaboratively with a wide range of service, sector and industry partners to ensure that all Australian people no matter their background, age or where they live, can benefit from the program. 
  • This is a much-needed and very exciting opportunity to better support Australian people and families whose lives are impacted by epilepsy.
