Position Vacant

IEU Organiser Lismore

The Union is currently seeking applications for a full time (or part time 0.8 position would be considered) Organiser to be based in Lismore. The successful applicant will ideally commence duties in Term 2 2019. Members from all sectors of non government education are invited to apply.


Duties will include school visits, industrial representation of members and the implementation of IEU campaigns. Familiarity with issues affecting early career teachers and a capacity to relate to them is highly desirable. Some weekends and evening work will be required. Overnight travel may also be necessary and a current driver’s licence is essential.


The successful applicant will be appointed under contract by the Executive of the Union and accountable to the Secretary in the first instance.

Salary will be in accordance with the IEU Officers’ salary scale that has links to the Sydney Catholic Schools teachers’ rates. Starting salary is usually one incremental step above that which a member would earn in 2018.

IEU Organisers retain their membership of the Union and are non voting members of the IEU Council.

Organisers are required to obtain a Right of Entry Permit for the Registered Organisations Commission. Applicants should be aware there are certain convictions which could prohibit gaining the permit.


Applications must be made in writing, setting out background, experience and other relevant material, including union involvement, that might support the application and forwarded to:

The Secretary
