Program Manager - Verification and Training
Location - Cairns (however can be negotiated)
The Aboriginal Carbon Foundation (AbCF) was established in 2010 as a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee. The AbCF has a majority Aboriginal Board and staff. The AbCF has a strong culture of innovation and collaboration, we take risks and invest in the development of carbon products and services and community development initiatives that benefit Indigenous people and address climate change nationally and internationally.
AbCF operates on the cutting edge of ideas and community-based solutions. It brings together people with fresh ways of working, professional experience and a desire to achieve outcomes that promote Indigenous prosperity and tackle climate change challenges through strengths-based approaches. AbCF openly seeks to collaborate with fellow Aboriginal organisations, carbon companies, non-government organisations (NGOs), conservation organisations, universities, and government agencies.
About this Role
The AbCF is seeking a multi-skilled Indigenous person with a proactive personality, who rolls up their sleeves and gets stuck into complex projects that often involve juggling multiple deliverables and working with many different stakeholders that require strategic ways of working and communicating. This person does not need to be spoon fed and is a strategic and creative thinker, able to come up with positive alternatives and solutions to keep a project moving forward, despite any obstacles along the way.
The best part of the job is working with Aboriginal rangers and Traditional Owners spending time on-country. When supporting a verification of environmental, social, economic and cultural co-benefits or leading training in the community this person should feel relaxed and confident. Working in a small team, sharing the wins as well as the challenges is important. Things don't always go according to plan, so being an analytical thinker is required, to figure things out. Being a hard-working, strong communicating team player is essential for a harmonious small team environment.
Closing date COB Monday 27th September 2021.
