About the ACF Fellowship

The Australian Conservation Foundation is Australia’s national environment organisation – 700,000 people creating a world where nature, people and wildlife thrive. In 2021 we are again running the ACF Fellowship program – a structured training and volunteering opportunity for emerging campaigners, community organisers and communicators. Excitingly, we are now recruiting in Gladstone, QLD!

Through the ACF Fellowship, you’ll be part of a supportive workplace where you can:

  • Learn from cutting edge campaigning, organising and communications experts;
  • Develop and apply your skills in a volunteer placement; and
  • Regularly reflect on your practice with other fellows in your cohort.

The volunteer commitment is two days per week from July to December, 2021. You'll be working on some of the most exciting environmental campaigns in Australia, like securing a stimulus package for green jobs in regional Queensland or getting a new generation of nature laws that actually protect the places we love.

The role could see you coaching our groups on environmental campaigns, leading a national team onboarding new volunteers, collecting powerful stories, evaluating our people-power efforts or supporting new Community Groups as they get up and going.

Placements will be offered to candidates who demonstrate the following criteria:

  • Passion for nature, the climate and justice.
  • Paid or volunteer experience in social change.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Strong organisational skills.
  • Approachable and friendly nature.
  • An ability to work independently and efficiently.
  • Familiarity with technology and the ability to quickly learn new programs.
  • A commitment to the values and mission of ACF.

The Fellowship is suited to driven, passionate and committed people who reflect the diversity of backgrounds and experiences in our communities. If that’s you, but you’re worried you don’t have all the skills outlined in the position descriptions, please apply anyway!
