Join the 350.org Australia team

350 is a global grassroots movement taking on the fossil fuel industry. Our vision is for a future that is just and equitable, with our communities and ecosystems thriving and protected from the impacts of climate change.

We believe that the only way we’ll see meaningful action on climate change is if we can counter the power of big fossil fuel companies with the power of people taking collective action. We work with the global 350 movement and in solidarity with people on the frontlines of climate change.

Right now, we are running campaigns to stop the flow of money for new fossil fuel projects and amplifying Torres Strait Islander voices as they fight to protect their island homes from climate change.

350.org Australia is a supportive, small team with benefits including professional development and training, an Employee Assistance Program, the ability to work flexibly and from home, and cultural leave provided to employees.

350.org Australia is an equal opportunity employer, and we strongly encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people living with a disability, LGBTIQ+ people, and people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities to apply for this role.

Volunteer Positions

Fossil Free Sponsorships Team

Fossil Free Sponsorships

To undermine the social license of fossil fuel corporations who are wrecking our climate and pillaging our land, we are on a mission to sever as many partnerships between these companies and community, arts, sports and education institutions as possible.

A coalition of artists, athletes, activists, parents, researchers and more are part of a coalition working on this issue, and this volunteer role and team would support this work.

About this Role

The Fossil Free Sponsorships team will provide vital backend support for the campaign to end fossil fuel sponsorships across a range of community institutions. You’ll be part of the MST cohort and training program but play a distinct role in support 350’s campaigners to roll out the Fossil Free Sponsorships campaign.

Key projects include recruiting organisations to take the pledge to not take fossil fuel money, reaching out to organisations that do take fossil fuel money and asking them to cut ties, creating content for the website and social media, and contributing to overall strategy and direction for the campaign.

Movement Support Team

About this Role

The Movement Support Team (MST) exists to grow, support and build leadership within our network of volunteers and to create the scale of people power and skills that we need to stand up to the fossil fuel industry.

Through helping identify and coaching grassroots leaders, welcoming new volunteers to our network, rolling out activist training and campaign tactics we create a powerful and resilient grassroots movement that will help us achieve our shared goals.

Our goal:
Activists across Australia will work together to shift the big 4 banks away from oil and gas investments, making it harder for big gas projects like Scarborough, Beetaloo and Barossa to secure Australian finance and approvals.

How we will achieve this: By building up communities and activists that can lead coordinated campaigns to put brand, staff and customer pressure on the banks and pressuring them to update their oil and gas lending policies.

Movement Support Team: Roles Description

We’re looking for 20 volunteer activists to join these teams and help build a movement for climate justice! MST members lead on various tasks including welcoming and inducting new activists, campaign support, training and events. Min 6-months commitment (fortnightly meetings and on average 1-2 hours per week).

Feel free to contact lavanya@350.org.au, using the subject line: Movement Support Team Members (voluntary) enquiry if you have any questions or want to chat about the role before applying. We will be interviewing from mid-January to early February on a rolling basis.
