  • Work for one of Australia's best known environmental not-for-profits, which has over 30 years of experience.  

  • Enjoy a 9-day fortnight working with a passionate and enthusiastic team to drive change in business, government and the community. 

Positive actions are at the core of every decision we make. We are defined by what we are for, not by what we are against. Our goal is to build a better world – one where humans not only live in balance with nature, but help it to thrive. 

About the role 

We are looking for a passionate, energetic and experienced Partnerships Communications Specialist to join the Planet Ark team. Reporting to the Partnerships Manager, you will work with the Partnerships Team to plan, provide and evaluate marketing strategies for Planet Ark’s partners and sponsors. 

The role involves planning, developing and implementing campaign and marketing assets across a variety of channels, including social media campaigns, articles and newsletters, and undertaking website updates. 

You will also be tasked with maintaining relationships with sponsors through reporting/evaluation and providing insights on deliverables. 

This is a full-time 12-month contract position. The salary for this role is $65k per annum + super + benefits. 

After a recent trial we now offer all full-time employees a 9-day working fortnight (67.5 hours). These hours are worked with alternate Fridays as a non-working day: staff are still paid at the rate for their full contracted hours. This is a staff health and wellbeing initiative, and we are striving to implement a 4-day working week in the future. 

How we support our staff 

  • We offer flexible working arrangements, remote working and a 9 day fortnight. 

  • Access to a range of meaningful benefits to support their mental wellbeing, including an Employee Assistance Program. 

  • A high level of support to grow their careers through learning and development. 

  • An organisational culture that rewards and recognises innovation and values, not long hours.
