Transport Workers' Union of Australia

18 hours left to apply

Our Campaigns Team is looking to grow and recruit into two Campaign Organisers - one senior position and one junior position. We have an ambitious agenda and we are looking for experienced, skilled, and dynamic staff who have worked in either union organising and/or campaigning.

The Transport Workers’ Union (TWU) is one of Australia’s leading campaigning trade unions, holding some of the biggest companies in the world to account over their treatment of workers, such as Qantas, Amazon and the supermarket giants.

Earlier this year, we won a groundbreaking legal system to set minimum standards in road transport, including world-first rights for gig economy workers like food delivery riders, rideshare drivers and AmazonFlex parcel couriers. This is an exciting time to join our union as we activate our membership to utilise these new precedent-setting laws and lift standards right across the industry.

The TWU has also cemented its role as a powerful voice for aviation workers, playing an integral role in rebuilding the industry, fighting for a reset of decent jobs above and below the wing, and getting Virgin Australia back in the air after administration. Our members achieved a historic victory against Qantas in the Federal Court, Full Court of Appeal and High Court over the illegal outsourcing of 1700 workers.

Are you interested in fighting multinational corporations, organising the workers who carry our country and ensuring safer roads and skies for everyone in Australia? We run comprehensive campaigns to give transport workers a powerful voice in the workplace, in Parliament, and in the community.


The team is made up of experienced organisers, campaigners, and educators who work together to create and implement national campaigns across the union. We are looking to add two organisers to the team, so if you think you meet the criteria below we would love to hear from you:


  • Support the development, coordination and execution of strategic national campaign plans.
  • Drive organising and growth strategies, plans and projects across branches and nationally.
  • Support the training and development of delegates and members across the campaign.
  • Support, develop and mentor organisers and other campaign officials.
  • Identify campaign leverage and opportunities to advance the interests of members.
  • Undertake and assist with research, planning, communications, and event management for campaign activity.
  • Liaise with staff in other departments of the union to achieve success for the campaign.
  • Build and manage relationships with staff in TWU state branches.


  • A proven track record as a union organiser or campaigner. Experience with supply chain campaigning, training or development a plus.
  • The ability to work both independently and as part of a team.
  • A willingness to understand and implement union growth strategies.
  • Strong communications skills, including demonstrated ability to write reports and draft internal and external communications.
  • Good IT communications skills, including experience with Excel and digital communications.
  • An interest in learning how to lead other team members.
  • A commitment to labour values.
  • The role will be based in our national office in Sydney, with interstate travel.
  • Applications welcome from candidates with the required experience and a passion for human rights.
