About the role

Humanists Australia helps people live an ethical and meaningful life through humanism. We advocate for positive social change, and provide authentic, heartfelt humanist ceremonies to mark life’s big milestones.

We currently include a list of upcoming events in our fortnightly Enews but we have been struggling to find the time to hunt down all of the great public science lectures, art gallery events, book launches, movie nights etc which humanists might like to attend. We have a small team of volunteers who currently meet online at 6.30pm (AEST) on a Tuesday once a month but we need more people to help. You need to be comfortable with a spreadsheet and using google docs.

We are specifically looking for people in NSW, VIC, TAS, NT, ACT and WA.

About the organisation

Organisation name : Humanists Australia

Humanists Australia is a national organisation which launched in December 2020 in response to the growing number of Australians who don’t identify as religious, and the emerging need to represent this group’s interests and priorities on a broader scale. We are dedicated to helping people live ethical and meaningful lives through humanism. Through our ceremonies, educational resources and awareness-raising, we help non-religious people discover humanism and humanist values, so that they can live an ethical life full of meaning and fulfilment.

Through our campaigns work, we advocate for positive social change. We advocate for rational, evidence-based policies that reduce societal inequalities, advance secularism, advance human rights and improve quality of life.

We also help people mark life’s big milestones by providing authentic, heartfelt humanist ceremonies. Delivered by experienced humanist celebrants, we offer meaningful marriage and commitment ceremonies, baby namings, end of life and funeral ceremonies, and ceremonies for other life events. Humanist ceremonies are underpinned by the values and traditions of humanism, but each ceremony is different and honours each individual exactly as they are.

Humanists Australia aims to grow its work across Australia. Our long-term objectives are:
True separation of Church and State
Secular wellbeing services in defence, hospitals, schools and prisons to ensure equal provision of pastoral care for the non-religious
Excellent access to community help and support for the non-religious
Guidance and support on how to live well and mark life stages as a humanist
