Jobs - 11 November 2021
Community Organiser - Melbourne
It all started in Tasmania in the 70s with the successful campaign to stop the damming of the Franklin River. Forty five years later, the Wilderness Society is still here. We’re here for remarkable places like the Kimberley, the Great Australian Bight and our biodiverse forests and bushlands. We’re here for endangered critters like the greater glider, swift parrot and numbat. We’re here with the power of nature-loving communities across Australia.
Join us to support the life that supports us all.
The purpose of the Wilderness Society's Community Organising program, Movement For Life, is to build a grassroots movement and the people power required to deliver our vision.
The Community Organiser role is focussed on building a bigger and more diverse movement for nature protection and climate action. The role involves recruiting and retaining volunteers, developing and training community leaders, and engaging target communities in meaningful dialogue and action.
Note: This position will often require work outside of standard 9-5 business hours.
Be part of one of Australia’s largest environmental advocacy organisations with over 40 years of success.
We’re committed to looking after our staff by offering fair pay and fantastic benefits, including:
- Flexible working conditions
- Work-life balance
- Five weeks annual leave
- Ongoing career and professional development
