The Organisation

The Australian Conservation Foundation is Australia’s national environment organisation – over half a million-people creating a world where forests, rivers, people and wildlife thrive.

A handful of people formed ACF 50 years ago when mining first threatened the Great Barrier Reef. Now the ACF community has grown into a powerful force for nature.

We bring together people from community, government and business. Our community advocates against pollution and destruction, and for our living world. We hold decision makers to account. We champion big ideas and find common ground with unlikely partners.

We love and protect the web of life right across our continent, from the Kimberley to the Reef, the reef down the Great Dividing Range to Tasmania’s forests.

People power our campaigns. We are proudly independent, non-partisan and funded by donations from our community.

The Role

The Community Mobiliser works closely with ACF’s mobilisation and organising teams to engage people to participate in ACF’s election campaign to raise climate change as a key issue. You will help recruit and support volunteers and community leaders to take action, run events, have conversations, advocate to decision makers and work with others in their community.

Your Skills

Do you have experience in engaging and mobilising people to take action? Have you worked on a community campaign or organised volunteers? Are you quick to learn digital tools for collaboration and communication? Are you confident speaking on the phone and in online meetings? Are you passionate about making a difference on climate change and do you believe people power is the answer?
