Communications Coordinator - Melbourne


We’re looking for a Communications Coordinator!

  • Are you a communications guru who wants to see more Australians ride a bike?

  • Are you as comfortable working behind the desk as you are out in public meeting people?

  • Do you want to make Australian communities healthier and more sustainable?

Bicycle Network believes that physical activity & sustainable transport is vital for a happy, healthy community – that’s why we make it easier for everyone to ride a bike. We support and service the needs of nearly 50,000 members, thousands of event participants and the general bike riding community across Australia.

As the Communications Coordinator, you’ll be delivering messages through our on line newsletters, web site, social and traditional media that will make a significant contribution to making Australia a nation of bike riders.

We’re looking for a progressive thinker, someone who’s always striving to improve and try new things to stay ahead of the pack. In this role, you’ll be playing a big part in our public affairs messaging by understanding the needs and motivations of people who do and want to ride bikes. You’ll also work with the wider Bicycle Network team to move towards a happier, healthier and more sustainable community.
