About the role

Who we are: at Action for Happiness Australia (AfHA) we aim to create a happier and more compassionate society by helping individuals and communities take practical action to improve their own wellbeing and make others happier too. We are part of a global movement of people from all walks of life who are taking action in their personal lives, communities, workplaces and schools to help create a happier and more caring society. We apply the growing wealth of scientific evidence of what really works.

We’re entirely volunteer-run and we’re looking to grow our team so we can have more impact.

  • Ideally, experience in projects, events, volunteers or admin will be helpful
  • A passion for wellbeing, psychology or health is preferred

Hours and Resources:

  • This role is very flexible and is done completely remotely; there are no set hours although we ask that you attend a bi-monthly operations meeting (in the evening) in person or via Zoom
  • We’re looking for someone who can invest at least 2-hours a week, if you’re able to contribute more, that’s fantastic!
  • To do this role, you’ll need access to your own computer and phone
