About this opportunity

Our Organisation

Queensland Conservation Council (QCC) is the leading independent voice for the environment in Queensland. QCC brings together Queenslanders who care about our natural environment and climate change. We use our position to advocate for action that protects the environment and builds ecological sustainability. By working together we can make our voices heard and create a better future.

Together we need to stand up and get organised to protect nature, climate and communities. It will take everyone doing what they can, no matter how big or small, to deliver meaningful action for our environment.

The Opportunity

Climate Action Now (CAN) signs and stickers send a clear message to decision makers and political candidates that their community wants climate action and they want it now. The Volunteer CAN Sign Coordinators oversee the distribution of all CAN signs for QCC. Working under the guidance of our Climate Organiser, the CAN Sign Coordinators play a critical role in smooth operations and effectiveness of coordinating the distribution of CAN signs to ensure that as many signs are put up and registered across Queensland for maximum impact. The CAN Sign Coordinators are responsible for the management of CAN sign inventory and orders, and assist in process improvement to enhance the effectiveness of distribution.
