Coalition Organiser - Remote / Work from Home

The Sunrise Project


About The Campaign

Australia has all the resources it needs to make the shift to clean, renewable energy. Yet, the shift isn’t happening at the pace and scale required to solve the climate crisis – and the benefits are not yet flowing to those most affected by the transformation.

Renew Australia For All is a new, people-powered collaboration backed by unions, social services, environment and climate organisations and industry. We are united in our belief that Australia must act faster to reap the benefits of the global transition to renewable energy.

Together, we are collaborating to ensure our politicians deliver the policy and investment required to:

  • Repower homes, transport and communities with cleaner, healthier, more reliable and affordable energy and improved energy efficiency,
  • Lock in secure, safe, well-paid jobs by repowering our industries and homes with renewable energy and seizing new opportunities to make things in Australia that the world needs, like green iron and aluminium,
  • Support communities to better prepare, withstand and recover from the extreme weather that climate change is already producing.
  • Future-proof the electricity grid with wind and solar supported by battery storage and a real plan to get the right renewables in the right places, with local community benefits built-in

About The Role

The Coalition Organiser will support a new, ambitious, collaboration of organisations working to Renew Australia for All.

They will engage closely with a diverse group of individuals and organisations to align interests and work towards common goals.

They will be key to ensuring that our collaboration succeeds – by ensuring campaign moments are seized, individuals are supported, and working groups are effective.

The Coalition Organiser will ensure the collaboration achieves outcomes that would not be possible by individual organisations acting alone.
