GetUp is looking for a Human Rights Campaign Director to lead the organisation’s Human Rights campaigns work.
SCHADS Classification Level 8, salary range $101,527.40 - $105,665,04 per annum (pro-rata) + superannuation, determined by relevant experience and qualifications.
This is a permanent full-time contract based in Sydney or Melbourne, however we may be open to flexible arrangements for the right candidate. Please indicate if you have special requirements in your application.
At GetUp, we know our capacity to drive progressive change is increased when our team has a diversity of backgrounds and experience - and especially comes from a background of lived experience on the issues we work on.
The GetUp movement is powered by the values and hopes of everyday people. We combine the power of over one million members, movement partners and a central team of expert strategists to make extraordinary impact.
We focus our campaigns on the areas our members care about most in the fields of First Nations Justice, Environmental Justice, Human Rights, Economic Fairness and Democratic Integrity. From making sure hundreds of thousands of people are able to vote in elections, to successfully stopping major projects threatening the Great Barrier Reef, or securing billions of dollars in new funding for mental health – we have a decade-long history of taking on powerful interests, and winning.
GetUp’s Human Rights Team focuses on campaign areas relating to the rights of people seeking asylum, women’s rights, LGBTQIA+ rights, migrant rights and more. The Human Rights Team also drives GetUp’s Colour Code platform, which brings together migrant, multicultural and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to organise around issues of racial justice.
Our days are filled with analysing the political state of play, developing long-term and rapid-fire strategy, engaging with politicians, media and affected communities, liaising with sector partners, spotting the right moment to intervene, running impactful tactics including everything from protests to undercover investigations, writing hard-hitting copy, and coming up with creative ways to give our members the best chance for impact.
If even a couple of these criteria speak to you, you could be the perfect person for the job. Formal education, qualifications and extensive experience matter less to us than excellence, initiative and drive.
Applications will be processed on an ongoing basis.
