Our Organisation

The Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) is the peak union body representing over 1.5 million workers and their families.

Since its creation in 1927, the ACTU has spearheaded some of the most fundamental workplace struggles in Australia’s history.

The ACTU’s role as a peak body is to be a national voice for our movement and defending and advancing workers’ rights by co-ordinating union campaigns, representing workers at a range of government and non-government forums and to provide industrial, policy and other support to our affiliates.

The role

The ACTU is seeking passionate and enthusiastic people to join our outbound casual phone organiser team.

You will be working on a variety of campaigns and receive fully paid training and ongoing coaching.

These positions are casual, entry level roles, and are an excellent opportunity to gain experience in working for the Union movement as well as broader campaign experience.

A Union, campaigning or call centre background is preferred, but not a pre-requisite.

These roles will be based in our Melbourne office. Evening work will be required, and weekend work may be required. Please provide your weekly availability in your cover letter.
