At GetUp, we know our capacity to drive progressive change is increased when our team has a diversity of backgrounds and experience. We are always actively looking for applicants from a diverse range of genders, cultures, language groups, abilities, and experiences to apply.
GetUp is looking for a Copywriter to work with our campaigns teams to deliver high-quality communications across all GetUp platforms, especially email.
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 Environmental Justice, Human Rights, Economic Fairness, First Nations Justice 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 Campaigns Team of talented campaigners lead the organisation’s work running campaigns that help create a more progressive Australia. The team prides itself on deep strategic thinking as well as the ability to seize crucial moments when taking immediate action can make a massive difference. We recognise that affected communities are at the heart of our work and we are always looking for ways to apply a strong rights and social justice lens to our campaigning.
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, 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.
You can apply via our website.
Please apply ASAP as applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
