Are you passionate about social justice? Do you believe in respect and dignity for everyone? Do you want to fight against the 1%’s greed and control of Main Street?


We are seeking 3 energetic and passionate individuals interested in starting social justice careers in union organising.

To combat this trend, we are creating a special projects organising team that will take on the most powerful finance sector employers in Australia. We are looking for 3 organisers who will be responsible for building power from the bottom up through grassroots organising rank and file members.
