Neighbourhood Connect is a national not for profit community organisation. We are helping people across Australia to create neighbourhood groups - to encourage happier, safer and more connected communities. Because life is better when we belong.

We have a national project team and neighbour groups in all States and Territories. Everyone involved is passionate about creating and supporting communities. The project is unfunded; we are all contributing on a voluntary basis.

Position purpose

To expand Neighbourhood Connect through leading a team to get our message out to relevant groups and organisations.

Your challenge is to achieve the following outcomes:

  • People contact us expressing their willingness to initiate a neighbour group (Connectors)
  • Groups that only connect online take up our offer to help them connect in real life
  • Existing neighbour groups join the Neighbourhood Connect Network


  • know how to lead on promotion (ie to drive this area, not just contribute)
  • have good judgement to determine the right message for specific groups
  • are interested in contributing to a community building project aiming to create a connected neighbourhoods movement
  • have good promotion, communication and mentoring skills
  • are self-motivated, goal driven and reliable

Your Role

As our Promotion Outreach Leader you will:

  • Lead a small team who use social media, emailing and other methods to get our message out to the right groups and organisations.
  • Lead on identifying, planning and implementing promotion outreach strategies (such as sending messages to relevant Facebook groups, sending out newsletter items, messages for volunteers at other organisations…)
  • Mentor and motivate team members who contribute to Promotion Outreach
  • Liaise with the Leadership Team
  • Suggest ways of strengthening the messages we use in Promotion Outreach.

What help will we give you?

  • Help and advice from Maureen Maher, Communications Manager, via phone and email
  • Video conference meetings for the Communications Team.

What will you get from this?

  • You’ll be contributing to the success of a national community building project which is making a positive difference in many people’s lives
  • The opportunity to use or develop your promotion outreach skills
  • The opportunity to use or enhance your leadership, mentoring and communication skills
  • Being part of a national project and seeing it grow and develop
  • A reference and referee to assist with your career.

Is this a big commitment?

This can be done on top of a busy life. The amount of time you can contribute and when you do this is up to you, but we would like a minimum of half a day a week. Your work is done from your home (there is no office).

  • why this interests you
