About the Role

Help shape TEAR’s community engagement work as we seek to build a coordinated movement of Christians seeking a more just and compassionate world for all. This newly created role is an exciting mix of community organising, supporter mobilisation and project management. You will be working alongside a committed team to connect with and empower Christians in Australia to engage in prayer, giving, advocacy, living justly, and/or learning.

Is this you?

  • You love the church and social justice; your goal is to make sure that every Christian in Australia is challenged and empowered to make biblically-shaped responses to poverty and injustice.
  • You’re a change maker; you can empower others on a massive and strategic scale to ignite volunteer action on social justice issues.
  • You pride yourself on your excellent negotiation and relationship building skills, you value others and work collaboratively to balance campaign goals with the limitations of technology.
  • You love working with people and enjoy getting out and about, networking with a variety of key stake holders.
  • You know the difference between mobilising and organising and can develop contextualised strategies that best empower people for action.
  • You are a digital native; you are able to utilise a broad range of digital tools to get the job done.
  • You’re a multi-tasker. You’re used to managing multiple priorities, whist having the utmost care towards both large and small details from running a training event, telling a story, writing copy for an electronic direct mail or taking a volunteer for a coffee. Making sure things get done is your forte.
