Program Facilitator 
Casual (NSW, VIC, ACT, QLD, SA)

About you:

Your dream job lets you chat to people about the stuff that you care about, and jumping up to chat to 150 teenagers gets you pumped up. You’re the first person to make a speech at a friend’s birthday or jump on the microphone at karaoke, even if it’s a disaster – hey, it’ll make for a good story. You’re confident, passionate and authentic. You can read a room, adapt to any situation and make people feel comfortable.

You know how to connect with young people, and having meaningful chats is something that comes naturally to you. Basically, you’re an amazing human looking for an opportunity to use your skills to have a massive impact on young people. If any of this resonates with you, you’re what we’re looking for!
