About the organisation
We believe all people are created equal, and we should love our neighbours as ourselves. Yet, right now, we’re living in a world of ‘us’ and ‘them’. Divisions are deepening, conflicts are escalating, and climate inaction is placing lives in peril.
It means every day, more of us around the world are forced from our homes by violent conflict and disaster.
For more than 70 years, Act for Peace has brought people together to respond to this injustice. Meeting urgent needs, advocating for change and backing displaced people to reclaim control of their lives.
Founded by the Australian churches, we are a diverse collection of people united by a powerful conviction: to create a just and peaceful society, we must work together. It’s both the right thing to do, and the only thing that will work.
That’s why we work in solidarity with long-term local partners; and collaborate with local, regional and global networks, academics, governments and the UN; to ensure people uprooted by conflict and disaster have a safe place to belong.
About the role
If you’re an all-round communicator and natural organiser with a passion for global justice; then this is the job for you.
With a track record of success in sourcing content for use across multiple channels, you’re able to seek out the stories of the communities we work with and the impact of the projects we support.
Combining commitment to safeguarding and compliance with your attention to detail, you’ll be able to efficiently manage all content sourcing logistics; from planning and organising story gathering trips to curating and managing our multi-media database.
Happy to wear many hats, and with experience of managing multiple concurrent projects, you’re as confident in researching and fact checking as you are in selecting images and video.
Your excellent communication skills mean you can build positive working relationships with collaborative teams, with stakeholders at all levels across the organisation, with media for reactive media opportunities, and with external suppliers, such as freelance photographers.
As a proactive problem-solver, your tenacity will help you to work through challenges, such as how to gather powerful stories from the field while COVID-19 restrictions continue.
In this hands-on role, you’ll leverage your creative and technical skills to support colleagues across the Marketing & Communications department to deliver inspiring fundraising, campaigning and engagement content that brings people closer to our cause and demonstrates the impact our supporters are making.
You’ll be working as part of a motivated and experienced team – and you’ll be putting your passion for global justice into action and make a difference where it’s needed most in the world.
This is a full-time permanent position based in our Sydney CBD office, with flexible working available. The salary will be negotiated depending upon the skills and experience of the successful candidate.
