About Us & The Role

The Climate Council is Australia’s leading climate science communications organisation. The Climate Council was funded through Australia’s largest crowd-funding campaign in 2014 and remains an independent Not-For-Profit organisation which houses some of Australia’s leading climate science, policy and renewable energy experts. With the largest media presence of any organisation in Australia on climate change issues and reaching millions through our social media challenges, volunteering at the Climate Council is an unrivalled opportunity to contribute to the public discourse on climate change.

The Cities Power Partnership (CPP) is the Climate Council’s flagship national cities program that works with towns and cities, via local governments, around Australia to ramp up renewable energy, energy efficiency, sustainable transport and working together. The CPP launched in July this year with 35 councils, representing over 200 towns and cities and over 3 million Australians. The CPP is picking up speed and will continue to grow.

The Cities Power Partnership team works in both Sydney and Melbourne, you’ll be working in the CBD located Melbourne office alongside the CPP media advisor and the Climate Council’s Digital Communications Manager.
