Seeking Expressions of Interest for Knowledge brokers in carbon farming and ERF, bushfire recovery, landscape resilience
Location: Canberra, ACT (negotiable)
Salary: $100-120,000 (pro rata) – part time role(s)
NRM Regions Australia is seeking Expressions of Interest for knowledge broker roles from people committed to natural resource management and making a difference for the environment and regional communities. These are national, part-time roles for people with initiative plus great relationship and communication skills. The goal of these roles is to facilitate knowledge transfer and application to improve decision-making in NRM (in on-ground practice, program design and policy development).
This will be achieved through working with topic based national NRM Communities of Practice; facilitating collaborative efforts of NRM practitioners, partners, researchers and knowledge holders (including Indigenous partners); and developing, tailoring and sharing knowledge through appropriate knowledge exchange and capacity building approaches.
The brokers will individually or collectively cover a range of topics particularly carbon farming, NRM and the Emissions Reduction Fund; bushfire recovery; and landscape resilience – with the potential for other fields.
The 12 month positions (with potential for extensions) can be multiple part-time or there is the possibility to knit positions together as full-time to cover the range of topics. Please note that the roles are approximately 0.5FTE (equivalent to a $40-60k salary)
Ideally the positions are to be based in Canberra at the ANU, though we are open to alternative proposals.
How to apply:
Written Expressions of Interest should be 2-4 pages.
Please submit to:
Deadline: Sunday, 7th February 2021.
As indicated, we are willing to consider a range of delivery options, but you should discuss these with Kate Andrews before submitting your EOI.
