Media Adviser

Are you a media specialist with a passion for environmental justice? We are seeking a Media Adviser with 3+ years’ experience to work with our dynamic team.

The Media Adviser works collaboratively to lift EJA’s media presence, ensures the work that EJA does reaches our target audiences and helps shape the public narrative on the environmental issues we work on.

This exciting opportunity will suit an experienced media specialist with a strong grasp of campaigning and a genuine interest in the power of people to make change. This role will allow you to make your mark in environmental and public interest law fields, working in a small but dynamic organisation.

This role will see you continue to build the profile of the legal and advocacy work done by EJA by leading on our media strategy and engagement. Working collaboratively with our lawyers and other staff, you will develop and implement organisational and campaign-specific media strategies.

Reporting to the Communications Director, you will provide expert advice and strategic direction on media opportunities, train and support EJA’s spokespeople, develop and execute media activities and monitor, evaluate and report on media goals.

The position is a 4–5 days per week fixed-term position for 12 months, with the possibility of extension beyond this date depending on funding. The position is based in Melbourne at EJA’s head office but working elsewhere in Victoria or NSW would be considered for the right candidate prepared to travel.
