About TEAR

TEAR is a Christian development, relief and advocacy organisation responding to global poverty and injustice. We work in partnership with our supporters toward a just and compassionate world in which all people have the opportunity to achieve their God-given potential.  To work at TEAR is to live out your vocation; a space where your faith, passion for justice and skills intersect.  TEAR offers generous salary packaging benefits, a friendly and flexible work environment, and will challenge you on your faith and justice journey.

Your Job

Work with TEAR’s community engagement team to connect with and empower Christians in Australia to engage in prayer, giving, advocacy, living justly, and/or learning. This role is a challenging mix of volunteer management, supporter mobilisation and community organising

Is this you?
  • You love the church and social justice; your goal is to make sure that every Christian in Australia is challenged and empowered to make biblically-shaped responses to poverty and injustice.
  • You’re a change maker; you can empower others on a massive and strategic scale to ignite volunteer action on social justice issues.
  • You have excellent negotiation and relationship building skills; you value others and work collaboratively to balance campaign goals with the limitations of technology.
  • You love working with people and enjoy getting out and about, networking with a variety of key stake holders.
  • You know the difference between mobilising volunteers and community organising; you can develop contextualised strategies that empower people for action.
  • You are a digital native; you are able to utilise a broad range of digital tools to get the job done.
  • You’re a multi-tasker; used to managing multiple priorities, taking care of large and small details from running a training event, telling a story, writing copy for an electronic direct mail or taking a volunteer for a coffee. Making sure things get done is your forte.
  • Your previous experience in a Community Organiser role gives you an advantage.
