Business and Community Supporters Manager

Great Barrier Reef Foundation

Are you purpose driven and wanting to make a difference? Do you love working with smart and passionate people who are dedicated to creating impact for Australia’s most recognisable natural wonder? Do you long to work in a flexible and fun-loving workplace? We have the role for you!

At the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, we think big. We know the threats to coral reefs are too complex for one person or one solution to solve. That’s why we built a collaborative organisation to raise funds, invest in innovative ideas and design real-world, scalable conservation programs. We work in close partnership with communities, scientists, businesses and governments to do our work, in Australia and in the Pacific.

Our mission is to create a better future for coral reefs.

We collaborate with more than 500 dedicated partners on conservation projects in Australia and the Pacific. Our work is broad, but falls under our three overarching pillars: restoring coral reefs, protecting ocean habitats, and working with Traditional Owners and communities. This is the critical decade for the world’s reefs. We cannot achieve our mission alone.

You could be the right fit for our team.
