GetUp is looking for a Lead Organiser to lead our team of organisers to work with a distributed network of thousands of GetUp members and volunteers around Australia and drive progressive change.
SCHADS Classification Level 6. Salary range is $84,788.60 - $88,509.20 per annum (pro-rata) + superannuation, determined by relevant experience and qualifications.
This is a fixed term contract ending on 31 March, 2020. This role was conceived on a fixed term basis to cover a short term capacity gap. Sydney is the preferred location, however Melbourne and Brisbane will be considered for the right applicant.
Applications will be considered on an ongoing basis.
At GetUp, we know our capacity to drive progressive change is increased when our team has a diversity of backgrounds and experience. We are always actively looking for applicants from a diverse range of genders, cultures, language groups, abilities, and experiences to apply.
The GetUp movement is powered by the values and hopes of one million members, movement partners and a central team of expert strategists. Working together, we have an extraordinary impact.
We focus our campaigns on the areas our members care about most in the fields of Environmental Justice, Human Rights, Economic Fairness and Democratic Integrity. From making sure hundreds of thousands of people are able to vote in elections, to successfully stopping major projects threatening the Great Barrier Reef, or securing billions of dollars in new funding for mental health – we have a decade-long history of taking on powerful interests, and winning.
The GetUp organising team works across Australia to build and wield the people power to radically redefine what is politically possible in Australia. Together, we develop and support a network of thousands of volunteers, mobilising members and voters to change public opinion and target political & corporate decision-makers across the country.
This is a huge mission, that is rewarding, demanding, challenging and creative.
Our team is an open and collaborative crew who have clear goals, are accountable to each other and work in ways that foster creativity, honesty, learning and innovation.
If even a couple of these criteria speak to you, you could be the perfect person for the job. Formal education, qualifications and extensive experience matter less to us than excellence, initiative and drive.
