Alumni Relations Coordinator – Australia Awards in Indonesia

The Program
The goal of Australia Awards in Indonesia (AAI) is to enhance Indonesia’s development through the contribution of internationally qualified professionals and a strong and positive relationship with Australia. This will contribute to the overall objectives of the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) development cooperation program in Indonesia.

Key to the success of AAI is engagement with Indonesian alumni of Australian higher education institutions. AAI is supporting DFAT and the Australian Embassy in Jakarta with the development and implementation of a five-year enhanced Alumni Enhance Engagement Strategy for Indonesia. This strategy moves beyond previous efforts to solely engage recipients of Australia Awards scholarships to also include those alumni who self-funded their study, short course award participants, and recipients of Government of Indonesia scholarships.

The objectives of the strategy are to:
· Promote the quality and competitiveness of Australian education and research;
· Support Australian-Indonesian business, trade and development cooperation linkages and initiatives;
· Help build networks of active ambassadors and provide more opportunities for alumni to stay
· connected to their Australian experiences and to share these with others ; and,
· Provide the right platforms and opportunities for alumni to connect and build enduring personal and
· Professional networks and institutional links in the region.

To contribute to the AAI, Coffey is currently seeking applications for an Alumni Relations Coordinator to be based (fulltime) in Jakarta, Indonesia.
