Who is the ACF?

When it comes to our environment, the Australian Conservation Foundation has been leading the way in protecting our living world for over half a century.

We are the national environment organisation committed to caring for Australia’s unique and beautiful wildlife and natural world. We’re inclusive, non-partisan and funded by the Australian community.

Whether it’s advocating for the Great Barrier Reef, Tasmania’s forests or koalas snoozing in big old trees, our dedicated community of over 700,000 supporters are constantly working to create a world where forests, rivers, people, and wildlife thrive.

What’s the gig?

The Mobilisation Coordinator ​plays​ ​an essential​​​ ​role​ ​in​ building and strengthening our movement at this critical time to address the climate and extinction crises.

Developing ​integrated online and offline mobilisation ​strategies​ ​across​ ​ACF’s campaigns, they work to build people’s skills in leading actions that effect change nationally – influencing decision makers and shifting the national debate.

They design and implement hard-hitting tactics to demonstrate community power at key campaign moments. They inspire people to become powerful advocates, developing the content and systems we need to deepen and scale leadership within our national community. They run transformational trainings and events, and foster community digitally to connect people in action right across the country.

Behind the scenes, they coordinate systems and processes for a streamlined experience for volunteers, and for ACF to accurately measure its impact. They are a key collaborator across teams within ACF, and with others in the environment movement.

About you!

You know how to bring people together, build rapport and shared purpose within a community, and inspire action towards shared goals. You are a confident facilitator who knows how to get the most out of a group, and can inspire people through written communications to step up their involvement in an activity and/or campaign.

You thrive in a working environment where priorities shift quickly, and can jump into action to make the most of any moment. You quickly pick up new digital tools and love building systems that can scale and be easily adopted by others. You have a sharp eye for detail, and a dedication to coordinating projects from conception through to evaluation.

You’re curious, driven by the search for exciting and effective ways to engage people in advocacy and create bold, inspiring moments in campaigns. And you’re committed to building an inclusive and equitable movement where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.

If this is you, we want to hear from you! Don’t miss this exciting opportunity.
