Membership Officer

The Australian Republic Movement (ARM) is the campaign for Australia to have an Australian citizen as the Australian head of state. Our growing national office is building a winning campaign team to achieve this great change.

We’re looking for a full time Membership Officer to support our existing members and supporters and attract new ones.

What you’ll do

You will be the face of ARM to our membership and a key member of our digital campaigning team. Member recruitment and retention will be your primary focus, and in time you’ll be able to develop and implement new member engagement strategies.

Who you are

You’re self-motivated and proud of your track record of working with a high degree of independence. You’re curious, confident and a problem-solver. You are as passionate as us about our campaign.

The skills and experience we need

You have a strong client and customer focus, a brilliant phone manner and excellent judgement. You know detail and process are important in this role so you do sweat the small stuff and work methodically to ensure that nothing is missed. You know what it takes to stay on top of relationships, finances, and information and are equipped to do this in the context of a paperless national office with staff in more than one city.

You have experience and knowledge of CRM systems, particularly NationBuilder, and marketing automation tools. Knowledge of modern campaigning techniques is a bonus

  • We’re offering a full time contract until end of 2017, with the potential of an ongoing position at the end of the contract
