Who is the ACF?

When it comes to our environment, the Australian Conservation Foundation has been leading the way in protecting our living world for over half a century.

We are the national environment organisation committed to caring for Australia’s unique and beautiful wildlife and natural world. We’re inclusive, non-partisan and funded by the Australian community.

Whether it’s advocating for the Great Barrier Reef, koalas snoozing in big old trees or for strong climate action, our dedicated community of over 700,000 supporters are constantly working to create a world where forests, rivers, people, and wildlife thrive.

What’s the gig?

Community Organising is a key part of ACF’s theory of change to create a sustainable future for generations to come. Our job is to build an unstoppable people powered movement that can help change the story on what’s possible and fix the underpinning systems that are locking us into environmental degradation.

The Organising Operations Assistant will be in the thick of ACF’s People Power Program, working with our Organisers to support our community groups. You’ll use your logistics superpowers to contribute to well-run, impactful trainings and events. Together with others in the Organising and Mobilising teams, you will make sure ACF have the data we need to facilitate brilliant volunteer experiences for ACF supporters.

About you!

You are highly relational with a passion for supporting volunteers. You’re able to keep many plates spinning and work to tight timelines. You love a good checklist and can clearly communicate priorities. You are digitally savvy and able to quickly pick up new digital platforms. You work collaboratively with others and build team momentum.

Why work for us?

You’ll do important work with one of Australia’s most impactful organisations, and with our world-class organisational culture and great team, we guarantee you’ll have fun along the way.

ACF is proud to offer our staff a supportive workplace with excellent conditions, including:

  • Genuine flexibility in working hours and location
  • Four weeks of annual leave a year plus an additional three days off over the Christmas / New Year period
  • Thirty days of personal leave a year (pro-rata) available to use immediately upon commencement
  • Superannuation contribution of 11%
  • Access to Long Service Leave after five years of continuous service
  • Eighteen weeks paid parental leave for parents (regardless of who is the birth parent) after 12 months of service
  • Ongoing professional development opportunities tailored to your individual career goals
  • Regular team and whole organisation retreats so we can plan, learn and grow together
  • Access to our Employee Assistance Program and wellbeing support

People are at the heart of everything we do to protect our planet. To achieve the bold change we seek, we must represent the richness of diversity within our communities so that all of us who care about nature can step up and lead.

ACF is committed to providing an environment of mutual respect where equal employment opportunities are available to all applicants. We actively encourage First Nations people, people from CALD backgrounds, LGBTIQA+ people, people with disability and others who have diverse experiences of our world to apply for this opportunity.
