Source: uWorkin


The Primary Health Consultant (Mental Health) supports Larter’s established work in the mental health, suicide prevention and AOD fields in the context of increasing recognition of the need to both redesign and expand mental health services and community supports. We have experience and networks in Victoria, having undertaken work such as assisting the establishment of HeadtoHelp mental health services; headspace centre establishment support; individual mental health service redesign; mental health regional needs assessments; suicide prevention regional planning support; and mental health training for clinicians.

We are looking for an individual who has experience in both Commonwealth and State-funded mental health services, with skills and experience in mental health policy and reform (for example, mental health stepped care, service planning and service review). We are also interested in candidates with experience in co-design with people with lived experience, and service commissioning. Components of the role will include undertaking needs assessments, data analysis, consultation and stakeholder engagement, and report writing.

Following the induction period, consultants at Larter often work relatively independently, managing projects from lead through to completion. Experienced consultants are primarily responsible for successfully managing a number of client projects and sometimes managing external contractors who collaborate in pieces of work.

  • Undertaking consulting tasks in order to successfully achieve project objectives within timelines
  • Developing appropriate and effective project methodologies - innovating where appropriate 
  • Consulting stakeholders in a variety of ways including interviews, workshops, meeting facilitation, online surveys, other innovative methods
  • Community consultation and co-design with consumers and stakeholders (including people with lived experience of mental illness or psychological distress, the mental health service system, and family / carers / natural supports)
  • Researching and undertaking literature reviews
  • Data analysis and report writing 
  • Presenting project outcomes; presenting to influence (e.g. governance committees, boards)
  • Collaborating with other consultants and client representatives.

All Larter staff work from home offices. Preferred location for this role is Melbourne / inner regional Victoria. Full and part-time employment will be considered (0.6-1.0 EFT).
