About this opportunity

About Corethics

Corethics is an independent not-for-profit organisation dedicated to creating sustainable and thriving communities in the developing world. We are an all-volunteer-run organisation based in Newcastle, Australia. Our Bali, Indonesia program addresses the devastating issue of water depletion and pollution through two projects.

  1. By partnering with IDEP Foundation we support their Bali Water Protection to help build recharge wells, provide stewardship education to school children, and build public awareness on water conservation to address Bali's depleting water supplies.
  2. In partnership with Kopernik, we are designing an innovative research and pilot project to address chemical pollution from factories in Bali, Indonesia.

About the role

We are looking for a self-starter in this role. All relevant information to support Grants will be provided. This is a remote position and we welcome applicants from across the world.

We hope this experience will either catapult you into the not-for-profit sector or give you the satisfaction of sharing your skills to benefit local communities in Bali and help them overcome their water crisis. Maybe both!

We are seeking volunteers who are skilled in writing, editing, and research. Experience or knowledge of marketing would be advantageous. You will be required to volunteer up to 10 hours per week and be able to meet grant deadlines.
