Please note: This is an identified role for Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander peoples and people of colour. The role includes participation in the Racial Justice Senior (Climate) Program run by Democracy in Colour. The Program offers an on-the-job training, mentoring and leadership development program for First Nations and People of Colour organisers and campaigners.
Tipping Point’s mission is to help foster, scale and support grassroots networks championing the transition beyond fossil fuels to 100% clean energy.
We believe that climate change disproportionately hurts the most marginalised people in society — including First Nations people, people of colour, people from working class backgrounds, women and LGBTQIA+ people.
We believe that these communities must be centred in the work we do. Hence, we strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or who are members of other marginalised communities.
We are a national project of Friends of the Earth Australia. For more information: www.tippingpoint.org.au.
Whilst we are a self-managing team, we do still offer the following supports to all team members:
Tipping Point is a collective of Friends of the Earth Australia and works differently to most not-for-profits, drawing principles from a range of communities operating in the ‘Teal paradigm’ of organisations.
Our values are what enable us to keep evolving and responding to each other’s needs, and the needs of the organisation. These values are trust, transparency, responsibility and accountability, equal worth, a safe and caring workplace, self reflection, openness to feedback and change, connecting with our individual purpose, and humility.
Tipping Point is looking for an organiser and mobiliser to join our work on the Move Beyond Coal campaign, to phase out coal exports in Australia by 2030, tackling Australia’s biggest contribution to climate change, and building a big, bold, diverse climate justice movement in the process.
Experience with electoral organising and/or working on political campaigns
NB: Given Tipping Point is a self-managed organisation, all roles include a mixture of public-facing (ie campaigning and/or organising) and internal responsibilities.
This is a full time position, ideally commencing in April 2023, for 12 months, with extension subject to funding. We are open to flexible working arrangements and 4 day weeks or 9 day fortnights.
This is an employment contract with Friends of the Earth Australia with an annual salary of $83,928 for a full-time position. All Friends of the Earth employees are paid the same amount.
Salary automatically increases by CPI every July.
