Senior Campaigner - Flexible Location

Original Power

Shape and deliver campaigns and projects that support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to build power and protect country.

Original Power is a community-focused, Aboriginal led organisation that builds the collective power of our people and backs our leadership, skills and capacity to genuinely achieve self-determination in our community and on country.

Original Power provides strategic advice and campaign support, facilitates capacity building and connects communities. The demands of climate justice require us to not only confront the climate crisis, but in doing so, build our capacity to ensure we are people who can confront all forms of injustice, determine our own futures and help bring greater control and dignity to our communities.

Your focus will be Original Power’s work in Defence of Country, partnering with communities in the Northern Territory and across Australia to support their efforts to self-determine what happens in their communities and on country. This could include getting behind a community protecting cultural heritage through lobbying decision makers, or supporting Traditional Owners advocating for a renewable energy project.

IN THIS ROLE YOU WILL

  • Apply your experience as a campaigner, community organiser or project manager to build the power of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through collective action
  • Strengthen connections between our people using organising and campaigning as a way of making change, and sharing the tools and resources needed
  • Put into practice your commitment to self-determination and passion to be part of a future powered by community-driven solutions.
