Be part of a team that’s secured some of the biggest wins for Australian wilderness and nature: stopping the damming of the Franklin River forty years ago, protecting Waldaman / James Price Point in the Kimberley from a ginormous gas hub, or defending special forests the length and breadth of this continent.


This position is responsible for designing, producing, project managing and measuring the effectiveness of organic content across Wilderness Society campaign and fundraising priorities. Collaboration with people across the organisation will be key in producing creative content for our different audience engagement channels.

  • Generous Paid parental leave (subject to eligibility conditions)
  • Commitment to supporting your professional development
  • Access to Long Service Leave after five years of continuous service
  • Access to our Employee Assistance Program
  • Regular 1:1 meetings for coaching and management support
  • Performance conversations for reflections and growth

  • Can drive your own areas of work
  • Are ready to take up the invitation and the challenge of the role
  • Are comfortable working to rapid response timelines
