Employment opportunities

Senior Campaigner

The Fair Agenda team are looking for an experienced and driven campaigner of colour to join our team as a Senior Campaigner!

Fair Agenda is a community of 42,000 people campaigning for a future where our gender doesn’t determine our safety, financial security or agency over our lives and bodies.  

The successful applicant will be involved in driving major campaigns, mobilising tens of thousands of Australians for justice, and persuading political, corporate and community decision makers to put fair on the agenda.

They will join a small but mighty team, drive campaigning in a nimble and impact-focused organization, and advocate for change across a range of issues, including: gendered violence, reproductive justice, and financial security.

This role is part of Democracy in Colour's People of Colour placement program. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to participate in a 10-month program of professional development (on paid work time) with a cohort of other campaigners of colour, and have access to a network of mentors to help them deepen their expertise.

While Democracy in Colour's placement program has traditionally focussed on creating entry level roles for people of colour, the 2021 program is focused on tackling the lack of diversity at senior levels within the non-profit space. This role will be part of a more senior cohort of campaigners of colour and will have access to advanced, tailored training. 

Access the full details and position description here.

The role is being offered on a full-time basis - but reduced loading and flexible working conditions are negotiable. The ability to work from home and with flexibility outside normal hours of operation are also possible.

Applications are open to candidates in any state. There is some preference for the successful applicant to be located from Fair Agenda’s office space in Melbourne. One staff member already works remotely from Sydney, so the team is set up for remote interstate working.  

Applications close midnight Monday 12th April 2021. The application form is available here.
