The Wilderness Society

Who We Are

The Wilderness Society is an independent environmental advocacy organisation. The work we do leverages our strong base to build a mass movement for nature conservation in Australia. Since 1976, we've stood at the forefront of the country's most historic campaigns, including the Franklin River, Fraser Island, Tasmanian Forests and James Price Point in the Kimberley. Today, we're training a new generation of environmental leaders with a sophisticated community organising, ‘Movement for Life’, program and building support for effective and lasting change to our environmental laws. The Wilderness Society exists to protect Australia's natural environment and the life it supports.

The Position

The purpose of the Wilderness Society's Community Organising program, 'Movement For Life', is to build a grassroots movement and the people power required to deliver our vision.

The Community Organiser role is focussed on building a bigger and more diverse movement for nature protection and climate action. The role involves recruiting, retaining and inspiring volunteers, developing and training community leaders, and engaging target communities in meaningful dialogue and action for nature.

Note: This is a part-time position (30 hours per week) and will often require work outside of standard 9-5 business hours.

The Benefits

Be part of one of Australia’s largest environmental advocacy organisations with over 40 years of success. We’re committed to looking after our staff by offering fair pay and fantastic benefits, including:

  • Flexible working conditions
  • Work-life balance
  • Five weeks annual leave (pro-rata)
  • Ongoing career and professional development
