Position Details

The Country Fire Authority (CFA) is one of the world's largest, and most highly regarded community based emergency services organisations. We respond to fire and other emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whilst our firefighters are the cornerstone of CFA services, what goes on behind the scenes is just as important in helping to protect lives and property.

As a member of the Volunteer Sustainability team, the incumbent will work collaboratively with other teams within CFA and externally with key stakeholders, in the provision of specialist programs and events that directly strengthen the sustainability of brigades and the growth of volunteerism.

This exciting role aims to understand the varied needs of brigades, volunteers and our communities with the aim to develop and deliver flexible solutions to support sustainability for volunteer fire brigades.  The role has the flexibility to operate across the District or Regional level based on local needs.

Ideally applicants will demonstrate both experience and a good understanding of volunteerism, community engagement techniques and the complexities often associated with working within a community based organisation.

The successful applicant will have:

  • Tertiary qualifications in a social sciences, humanities, or related discipline; or equivalent experience in the field of volunteerism.
  • Demonstrated ability to facilitate and deliver successful outcomes in complex environments.
  • Demonstrated experience working with small groups including mentoring and coaching.
  • Strong proven experience and expertise in the field of sustainable volunteerism and an understanding of working with community based organisations.
  • Demonstrated ability to identify and analyse risks and develop relevant mitigation strategies and solutions.
