The Quit Coal collective has successfully campaigned with local community groups to secure a total ban on unconventional gas mining, like fracking, in Victoria. We have also helped fight off new coal mines in Bacchus Marsh and Mirboo North and worked as part of a coalition to stop a new coal-fired power station being built in the Latrobe Valley.
But the climate is still changing, communities are still being exploited and deceived by the fossil fuel industry and we’re ready for a new challenge. That’s where you come in! We’ve got plans around taking on energy companies, supporting the fight against fracking and coal around Australia, and we’re seeking a coordinator to help get us on track for more success.
In conjunction with the Quit Coal collective volunteers and the Friends of the Earth team, the Quit Coal Coordinator will work to:
convene and help facilitate an effective collective process;
re-engage our supporter base and drive engagement; and
maintain and grow our financial supporters and foster new relationships.
Please take a look at the Position Description for the role for more details on how to appy.
