Office of Adam Bandt - Volunteer Program

Greens MPs

Your chance to be part of democracy in action in Melbourne.

Are you passionate about social justice? The environment? Local community issues? Workers' rights? Looking to be part of the solution? Here’s your opportunity to gain first-hand experience volunteering with the Leader of the Federal Greens and make an impact in Melbourne.

Adam Bandt MP is looking for volunteers to join his team in Melbourne in the first half of 2024.

The volunteer program is an opportunity to develop your skills and contribute to the community.

We know skills can be built quickly. Initiative and a thirst for knowledge are the most important qualities we are looking for.

What will I be doing?

You will be contributing to one of the work areas of Community and Sentiment Mapping, Communications and Social Media, Constituent Casework, Community Campaigning and Policy.

Each work area has a different scope and will be working with a direct mentor.

  • Community and Sentiment Mapping: You will map the community (schools, community groups, issue groups) while using voter contact data in those electorates to map the interest.
  • Communications and Social Media: You will be trained in working with our socials materials, understanding how to target their socials and how we use sounds and trends to communicate key Greens campaigns and messages.
  • Constituent Casework: You will work closely with constituents to assist them in accessing support services and advocating for governmental services to act on their issues.
  • Community Campaigning: You will be working with the local community to identify issues within the community, conducting community listening posts and setting up mutual aid programs from the electorate office.
  • Policy: You will undertake data-driven research, including compiling data from various sources, identifying patterns and summarising key findings.

How does it work?

  • Four months, two days a week;
  • The position is voluntary. No financial remuneration is available, and no employment positions are on offer;
  • Volunteers will be offered six training sessions and regular mentoring;
  • Costs incurred during project work will be reimbursed as negotiated;
  • Electorate Officers and Leaders Office Staff will mentor volunteers;
  • Expressions of interest are welcomed from students seeking a placement or internship for course accreditation;
  • Our office is open 9 am-5 pm, Monday to Friday, so some availability during business hours is necessary. However, we can negotiate flexible hours to ensure a convenient arrangement.
