CERES Community Environment Park is an award‐winning, not-for‐profit, environment park and urban farm located by the Merri Creek in East Brunswick, Melbourne. Once a landfill site and wasteland, today CERES is a thriving, vibrant community. With over 450,000 visitors a year, CERES is the most visited environmental centre in Australia.
Fair Wood is a social enterprise operating under CERES’ umbrella that sells transparently sourced timber from a wide variety of sources.
CERES Fair Wood acts as an “honest broker” between Australian agro-foresters and local sawmillers and an emerging market of green architects, builders and consumers demanding socially & environmentally responsible timber.
As well as serving the green-buying market already served by CERES’ existing social enterprises Fair Wood seeks to enter the growing social procurement space being fostered Victorian State Government.
Seeking to keep growing strongly in its second year Fair Wood is ready to move into its own dedicated warehouse.
We are seeking a motivated and self-starting manager with broad experience in the timber industry who is looking to step up to a senior management role. Marketing is a focus of this role, however we are looking for someone as comfortable docking timber as they are working on an ad campaign.
