An exciting opportunity exists for a finance professional to join the EFFA team and support the festival in a key area of financial sustainability. Responsible for maintaining and administering the Festival’s bookkeeping and accounting (including compliance, regulation and reporting), this role also assists with operational tasks related to finance and accounts and supports the organisation in making informed financial decisions.
The Environmental Film Festival Australia (EFFA) is an entirely volunteer-run organisation, operating in Naarm (Melbourne) since 2010.
EFFA is more than a film festival – we're a catalyst for positive and sustainable change. We inform, inspire, entertain and educate audiences of all ages, sharing films from around the world. Our key mission is to showcase great cinema and art that celebrates nature, flora, fauna and wildlife, champions the people, organisations and projects protecting our environment, and illustrates the unprecedented global threats our world faces, such as climate change, food sustainability, habitat loss and pollution.
Following record attendance in 2019, with the festival hosting more than 20 screenings, alongside panel discussions, parties and special events, 2020 saw us turning digital. In October, we hosted our first ever science/fiction based online festival, with participants zooming in from across the world. This year, our festival is set to take place in October.
EFFA has a passionate, values-driven and diverse team who were attracted to the festival for a multitude of reasons: from bringing unique perspectives to the big screen to harnessing their unique skill sets to enact social change. EFFA provides an opportunity to gain experience in a leading arts festival and to help contribute to a better world. With 76% of volunteers staying year-on-year, and with many people leaving to pursue new festival-related roles, you’ll be joining a group of fun, dedicated, like-minded people.
By being part of EFFA, you’ll:
With a knack for numbers and a passion for the environment and/or the arts you are looking to use your bookkeeping skills to be part of an event that really makes a difference. You will get satisfaction working for a values-driven not-for-profit, not only helping to manage the organisation’s day-to-day financial accounting but to help implement best-practice procedures to ensure financial sustainability into the future.
