Every-one in Australia is a migrant or a descendant of a migrant. Even our first peoples migrated here. And no matter how short or deep our roots are, most of us had to work hard to survive, find a job, put a roof over our head and feed our family. Times may have changed, but the challenges remain the same. Do you agree that even today newcomers are not easily accepted by existing communities, that ignorance, arrogance and racism still exist and that migrants have to work harder, be smarter and much more determined to get a job and prove themselves?

AMCCU (Australian Multi-Cultural Community United Ltd) is supporting the social and economic integration of migrants, fostering reconciliation, acceptance and co-operation between the different races, ethnic and religious groups and bond them into one Australian community. And we also celebrate the enriching multi-cultural diversity of our beautiful food, film, music, dance, fashion, art & craft that makes this community so unique.

Being the new kid on the block ourselves, we intend doing all of this a bit different to traditional charities. We don’t door-knock anymore, but build cloud-based service platforms and online communication networks with passionate volunteer teams. We even have our own TV Production Team. However, no team can excel just by itself. It needs support.

That’s where you will come in.

You and other members of the Grant Team will work together to identify exciting Grant Opportunities and turn them into a funding source to assist migrants and their communities. Grants require the ability to answer questions in the way the funder wishes them answered, whilst giving us the biggest flexibility to fulfil our purpose. It’s both formal AND creative.

What do you need to bring to the team?

Any and all of the skills, knowledge and work experience you have gathered as a creative writer or editor. Having grant writing experience would be of benefit, but it is not a prerequisite as we can teach you the skill required. However, excellent written communication, research & organisational skills are a must. Besides these skills, just bring in Yourself.

You would work from where-ever you want and whenever you want. Your time commitment will depend on the grant application itself. There might be little to do between applications and lots during an application. Whilst you are not alone and part of a larger team, expect it to be a couple of hours in between grants and 10 hours per week during an application.

The impact of your work will be far reaching. By obtaining grants for the wider migrant community, you enable them to bring projects in to life that they otherwise would not be able to. And the more projects we can implement the higher the chance of making Australia the world's most inclusive society!

So if you have the passion and the desire to create a meaningful legacy, then express your interest and tell us a bit about you.
