The Yarra Riverkeeper Association is a not-for-profit community organisation formed in 2004 by a group of citizens who love the Yarra River (traditionally called the Birrarung, downstream of where it flows from the hills into a floodplain) and care about its future. Our vision is to ensure the Yarra River is healthy, protected and loved. The work of the Association springs from a strong sense of place and an effort to understand the river as an ecosystem.
The Riverkeeper is the primary spokesperson on behalf of the Association and principal public advocate for the Yarra River. As the ‘storyteller of the river’, the Riverkeeper commits to building deep understanding through learning about the ever-changing nature of the river and its tributaries, people, Traditional Owners, and sharing that knowledge with others. Within an evidence-based framework they educate the public by sustaining and further developing a public presence on behalf of the Association. Each Riverkeeper will shape the role by sustaining, consolidating and building networks of influence to support the organisation.
The role is full time or part time by negotiation and will have an attractive remuneration package.
