About this opportunity
Everyone in Australia is a migrant or a descendant of a migrant. Even our first peoples migrated here. And no matter how short or deep our roots are, most of us had to work hard to survive, find a job, put a roof over our heads, and feed our families. Times may have changed, but the challenges remain the same. Do you agree that even today newcomers are not easily accepted by existing communities, that ignorance, arrogance, and racism still exist, and that migrants have to work harder, be smarter, and be much more determined to get a job and prove themselves?
AMCCU (Australian Multi-Cultural Community United Ltd) is supporting the social and economic integration of migrants, fostering reconciliation, acceptance, and cooperation between the different races, ethnic and religious groups and bonding them into one Australian community. And we also celebrate the enriching multi-cultural diversity of our beautiful food, film, music, dance, fashion, art, literature, design, and crafts that makes our community so unique.
Being the new kid on the block ourselves, we intend to do all of this a bit differently from conventional charities. We don’t door-knock anymore but build cloud-based service platforms and online communication networks with passionate volunteer teams. We even have our own TV Production Team. However, no team can excel just by itself. It needs support.
That’s where you will come in.
You will assist us in developing and implementing strategies that will benefit our individual, business and corporate members as well as our not-for-profit partners. Besides, you understand that our organisational capability to make a valuable impact grows with the number of alliances we build with like-minded organisations and hence develop and foster these as well.
What do you need to bring to the team?
Any and all of the skills, knowledge and work experience you have gathered in business and membership development or related marketing roles over the period of at least 3 years, particularly -
- Knowledge about creating marketing funnels, automation platforms and databases.
- Demonstrate experience in prospecting, developing, and closing leads
- Experience in customer service and relationship building
- Excellent communication, writing and presentation skills
- Exceptional organisational skills
You need to be entrepreneurial and willing to take the initiative. Having self-esteem is beneficial, but ego won’t bring you anywhere in a community environment. Leadership is great, if you don't try becoming the boss. It doesn’t matter if you are an introvert or an extrovert as long as you are a reliable communicator and team player. Importantly, don’t leave any part of your personality at home, be all of you all the time.
In AMCCU we offer you to learn and acquire new skills. At the same time, you can bring in all your experience and contribute as much as you like.
You would work remotely from wherever you want (you don’t need to be based in Victoria), being connected with all teams via phone or video-conferencing whenever required.
The impact of your work is far-reaching. By creating more awareness about AMMCU's purpose & services, we can achieve more. And the more we can help migrants to succeed in Australia the more we can become the most tolerant, diverse, and happy nation on Earth.
So if you have the passion and the desire to create a meaningful legacy, then express your interest.
