The union is currently seeking applications for a full time Organiser to be based in one of our Sydney offices (Ultimo or Parramatta). The commencement date for the successful applicant would be negotiated but preferably no later than the beginning of Term 2.
Organiser’s duties include school visits, industrial representation of members and the implementation of IEU campaigns. Familiarity with issues affecting teachers at all stages of their career and the current educational agenda as it impacts on teachers 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.
In addition to the above position, the Executive may appoint a second Organiser, based in Ultimo, who in addition to the usual organising duties, will also have a role in the union’s professional development program. Duties will include the design and delivery of PD and using social media to engage with members.
The successful applicants 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 2020.
IEU Organisers retain their membership of the union and are non voting members of IEU Council.
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:
