About Us

EthicalJobs.com.au is working to change the world, one job at a time.

We bridge the gap between thousands of not-for-profit organisations that strive to make our world a better place, and all the passionate, values-driven job-seekers who want to “work for a better world”.

As a for-profit social enterprise and one of Australia’s top job-search sites for the not-for-profit sector and beyond, our platform supports the work of more than 7,000 for-purpose organisations around the country, and has a passionate community of 320,000+ unique users using the site each month. And we’re growing!

You’ll be joining a friendly, passionate and successful team of 29 people who share a vision of a more equitable, just and sustainable world.

When we’re not working from home (as we are for the moment) our spacious office is just off Smith St in Collingwood, including a large outdoor deck for lunch in the sun and drinks after work, and great food and coffee just around the corner.

About the Role

In support of our continued growth we’re embarking on a GCP transformation project and you’ll be key to its success. While we’re not an enterprise scale environment, we do have complexity and your skills will be key in ensuring we can scale effectively.

  • Weeks 4-6: design and test an implementation plan that encompasses all approved GCP changes, change/risk management, cost forecasts, rollback and training.

  • Weeks 6-10: this is where all your expertise, experience and hard work is put into practice - you will deliver the implementation plan. For the final 2 weeks you will provide support services to any post implementation issues that may arise.

  • Work remotely up to 3 days / week

  • A beautiful office, close to public transport and great food on Smith St

  • A light- and plant-filled work space, with beautiful outdoor deck for outdoor meetings and drinks
