Australian Greens (Victoria)

The Victorian Greens are looking for a great communicator with strong data management skills and user help desk experience. In addition to supporting our small staff team, you’ll be helping support hundreds of volunteers all across Victoria to use our CRMs, GSuite workspaces and other IT systems. Your work will help support our members to grow the organisation and campaign to get more Greens representatives elected to local council and state and federal parliaments.

About the role

Are you a clear and confident communicator who loves working with people and solving problems?

You’ll need strong technical problem solving skills and the ability to quickly master new systems. You’ll be supporting users to gain appropriate systems access and make effective use of the critical online infrastructure that underpins their work.

In addition to running the helpdesk you’ll also be responsible for maintaining the quality of user entered data in our databases. You’ll deliver regular group training sessions (currently online) for volunteers and build a team of volunteer data coordinators who can support users in their local area. You’ll become a power user of our campaign systems and support others to use search building functions to create contact lists and complex contact filters.

About the Victorian Greens

Over the course of the last four decades the Greens have become the third force in Australian politics, with members elected to represent their communities at every level of government. We are a grassroots party that relies on the support of thousands of members and volunteers from across the state.

The Victorian Greens State Office supports party operations and the federal, state and local election campaigns in the state of Victoria. The Greens have 24 Councillors across Victoria and four state Members of Parliament and three Federal MPs in Victoria and are currently starting preparations for the 2021/22 Federal Election campaign.

The Greens are much more than an environmental party. The Greens are also working in many other areas to champion integrity, decency and fairness. As well as representing constituents, the Greens speak on behalf of those who wouldn’t otherwise get much of a say inside parliament: children, refugees, students, individuals and families living in poverty and, of course, our natural environment.
