This is an exceptional opportunity to make a very real contribution to the protection of Australia’s unique wildlife and their habitat.

Bush Heritage Australia, an independent, leading conservation not-for-profit, is seeking a Media Coordinator to work within our Marketing and Engagement team.

Our vision of Healthy Country, Protected Forever sees us work where we are needed most: in areas of high conservation value with low levels of protection. With the help of our donors, we buy and manage land, so we can protect our irreplaceable landscapes and our magnificent native species forever.

Currently we own 37 reserves and we protect and help manage 11.3 million hectares of land across the country. In our mission to return the bush to good health, we provide habitat for 6,700 native species, including at least 226 threatened species. Two proven approaches underline what we do: we carefully select, purchase and manage landscapes of high conservation value; and we work in partnership with Traditional Owners and others to achieve key conservation outcomes.

About the role

This role is part of the Engagement Team and, within in it, the Marketing & Communications Team, and works closely with a wide range of stakeholders to tell our stories in a way that engages the right audience, at the right time, to ultimately increase our brand awareness and support from our donors.

Reporting to the Communications Team Leader, the role focuses on our traditional and social media, sharing our stories of the land and our work with the right audiences at the right time.

The Media Coordinator is responsible for all media liaison, from pitching stories to liaising with internal and external stakeholders for comments and content and organising media trips. In addition to this, the role is responsible for our social media channels, managing the content calendar and curating content from team members, BHA colleagues and partners.   

The role works closely with the rest of the communications team, who are key content contributors to our social channels. The role also supports copy writing needs for other projects.

The Incumbent will work between Monday and Friday, with flexibility around hours.
