Team ongoing mentoring and support
You’ll join a community of like-minded and passionate people.
Our greatest strength is our volunteers - who are passionate, driven and inspired to create change. We all bring different and unique skills, experiences and quirks to the table and you’ll learn from the role and from the people around you. Together we share the common unshakable belief that we are all equal, that we can work together to change the status quo for the good of all.
This is a leadership role, managing 4- 6 volunteers locally. You will work closely with other Group Coordinators in the leadership teams across the country and with the partner organisations in the Aid & Development sector, civil society and churches, to coordinate events to engage the public and increase participation.
A typical week of a Group Coordinator may looks like
- Implement campaign actions such as organising MP meetings, project planning and managing roll out of events, and presenting to community groups.
- Holding weekly Team meetings, setting priorities, fostering a healthy team culture and troubleshoot with the team.
- Attend fortnightly Group Coordinators Huddles, share learnings and contribute to discussions on team health and expansion strategy.
What we’re looking for:
- Someone passionate about ending poverty, and committed to taking action to build the political will to end poverty.
- A “people person”, who is excellent at building relationships and who loves to inspire, develop and motivate others.
- Someone with excellent verbal and written communication skills.
- A logistical mastermind, all about event organisation and time management with great attention to detail.
- You love creating something that encourages efficiency and ensures high-quality results.
- You have a creative mindset and are willing to experiment, fail fast and fail often.
- You love solving problems, big and small, and are relentless in getting to solutions.
If any of the above qualities speak to you we encourage you to apply!
We know our capacity to create change is amplified by diversity. We want to ensure everyone's individuality can thrive because you’re at your best when you can be yourself. We encourage applicants from a diverse range of genders, cultures, language groups, abilities, and experiences to apply.

- Build meaningful relationships across the country with volunteers, staff and partner organisations, who will see and be impacted by your work.
