The working environment is engaging with a constant agenda of interesting issues. The Union has offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.

They're also responsible for staying up to date on industry trends.
The role will lead a team in an agile environment to deliver projects, support campaigns and develop best-practice communication.
The marketing management side of the job involves the development and refinement of marketing plans, pricing strategies, promotional activities and branding in consultation with staff, members and prospects.
