The Senior Campaigner will lead and effectively project manage the implementation of the existing Raise the Rate for Good campaign strategy at ACOSS. The Raise the Rate For Good campaign is a national campaign aimed at securing a permanent and adequate rate of JobSeeker, Youth Allowance and related payments so that people can cover the basics and rebuild their lives. The campaign strategy spans four pillars, including changing the story about people who are unemployed, mobilising the community to take action, securing the support of key influencers & stakeholders, and persuading key political decision-makers to support the campaign.
This position will coordinate a cross-organisational team of communications, campaign, policy and operational staff to drive the campaign forward and ensure it succeeds in its goal to reduce poverty and inequality in Australia.
We know our work is stronger with a diversity of backgrounds and experiences across our team, including lived experience of the issues we work on. People from diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people with disability, people of colour and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
The position is a fixed-term contract to Monday 30 June 2021.
