Take the lead in designing, implementing and evaluating our #SomethingForSlavery campaign. This exciting, new role will suit someone with plenty of initiative, who enjoys the challenge of being innovative, grappling with some ambiguity, and is passionate about growing and strengthening a movement to end slavery!
Applications close Monday 27 July, 9am AEST
#SomethingForSlavery inspires action to end modern slavery through our voices and everyday actions.
The 2020 campaign, in partnership with Australian NGO Be Slavery Free, calls on T2 to commit to a living wage for tea workers in Assam. Workers in Assam currently receive around AU$0.06 per 100g of bagged black tea, while T2 sells the equivalent for AU$12. Low wages are directly linked to human trafficking and modern slavery. Trapped in poverty with limited future prospects, workers are vulnerable to traffickers’ deceptive offers. The campaign asks tea lovers to:
Send a message to T2, using an email template on our website.
Host a tea party sharing information about the issues and encouraging others to send a message to T2 (for those looking to get more involved).
The campaign is in its third month and is gaining traction! T2’s CEO has responded and we’ve met with T2’s parent company, Unilever, to progress the campaign concerns.
Work with the Project Didi board and Be Slavery Free to progress the campaign strategy and come up with creative and impactful ways to achieve its goals.
Pursue opportunities to expand the campaign’s reach and engagement, including preparing media releases, organising online events and exploring opportunities to work with relevant partners.
Manage the campaign’s social media and communications, taking the lead on developing all campaign content.
Track and report on the campaign’s engagement and outcomes.
What are we looking for?
The capacity to work on the campaign 5-6 hours a week and make a 6 month commitment, at minimum, to the role. As a 100% volunteer-run organisation, reliability and consistency in our volunteers is critical.
A keen interest in and understanding of key human rights issues in global supply chains.
A strong belief in the power of consumer voices and actions, with demonstrated experience inspiring and mobilising action for a cause.
A creative, persuasive communicator, with experience using social media and digital communication platforms, including MailChimp, Weebly and Canva.
Strong research skills and the ability to translate complex, confronting topics into clear, compelling and balanced content for diverse audiences.
Excellent self-motivation and organisation skills, with the ability to work effectively remotely and independently.
What can we offer?
Join a growing and dynamic organisation tackling issues of gender-based violence, inequality and human rights.
A platform to translate your ideas into action, driving change on one of the greatest human rights issues of our time: modern slavery.
Challenge yourself, taking a leading role on a key campaign with the support of engaged and experienced volunteers, board members and advisors from other not-for-profits to back you.
Work from anywhere, joining a team of 20+ volunteers, working all over Australia.
We’re looking for volunteers able to commit 5-6 hours a week, for a minimum of 6 months. Ideally, we hope to start the role in August.
We are strengthened by the diversity of our team at Project Didi Australia. We welcome applications from people of all cultures, backgrounds and experiences, and are committed to providing reasonable adjustments so that all team members are able to fulfill the essential functions of their roles.
