The City of Yarra has a proud history of environmental action and leadership. Yarra was one of the first local governments in the world to declare a climate emergency, recognising urgent action is required by all. We are now employing our first Climate Emergency Officer, to help respond to the climate emergency across the municipality and within the organisation.

More specifically, the position will:

  • Lead the design and delivery of key engagement, behaviour change, and mobilisation campaigns related to climate emergency, to increase long-term buy-in and action across Yarra.
  • Design, deliver, and/or promote climate emergency information, programs and events in Yarra, to increase awareness and action.
  • Work in partnership with the community, key partners and stakeholders, supporting action on the climate emergency, and actively participate in joint sustainability projects.
  • Support the delivery of staff engagement programs to increase and embed climate emergency awareness and action within the organisation.
  • Investigate, prepare, and support applications for relevant grant programs to secure funds to enable delivery of climate emergency action and engagement programs.
  • Support the ongoing delivery of Yarra’s Climate Emergency Plan (in development).

The climate emergency is fast-paced, growing global movement. We are seeking a passionate candidate who has relevant understanding and experience in developing and implementing community sustainability campaigns and projects, strong communication skills, and a demonstrated ability to undertake complex projects with many stakeholders.

Yarra city council is a dynamic, progressive, and sustainable organisation. We pride ourselves on our diversity and aim to make a positive difference in people’s lives.
