EcoNet is a unique player in the volunteer conservation space. We are developing a special system called CAMS (Conservation Activity Management System) using world class software. We are looking for a Weed App Coordinator who is passionate about protecting native bush and other significant ecological areas from environmental weeds. You have a passion for the environment and some experience with getting new systems and processes up and going. You enjoy working with volunteers and community groups and would like to develop these skills to help protect our beautiful native biodiversity. You will have great communications skills face-to-face, in writing and via social media. Your background may include some project planning and coordination, some environmental work, maybe some systems implementation and rollout. Working in this role will not only help the environment - it will introduce you to other people who are also keen to protect nature and to share their skills.
