Communications Coordinator

Friday, 24 Nov 2023

The Centre for Policy Development is seeking a communications coordinator to work across both digital and traditional media and PR communications channels, building support for practical, collaborative solutions to some of the most pressing challenges Australia and our region are facing. We believe our team is our key asset and we are committed to recruiting and retaining talented, ambitious individuals. The successful candidate will be based in CPD’s Sydney or Melbourne office, with hybrid and remote work practices available.

About you
You have at least two years experience in professional communications work, perhaps in an NGO, government, agency or in house role, and you are looking for your work to make a difference. You are comfortable working with a variety of tools to produce content that connects with the audience you’re talking to. 

You’re probably happiest learning new things, you’ll be comfortable asking questions when things aren’t clear, and you’ll want to make measurable and recognised contributions to work that’s in line with your values. 

You’ll be developing reasonably sound judgment in how you manage stakeholder relationships, and will be eager for support in extending that development.  You will understand plans change when there’s a good reason, and will be comfortable making trade-offs to ensure the best outcome when that’s needed. 

You’ll be looking to combine a role that extends your skills with providing critical support to maintaining and enhancing our communications approach, output and impact.
