About the Science Party

The Science Party is an Australian political party and not for profit organisation. We believe that our quality of life is improved primarily through technological developments, sourced through a scientific approach to knowledge in the context of democracy and peace. The Science Party believes in a positive future for all people. A future where people are healthier, wealthier, longer lived and more free.

The Science Party is a federally registered political party but is now looking to also secure state-level registration in NSW. To do this we will need to expand our fundraising efforts outside our membership base.

  • Design and implement fundraising campaigns targeting mass audiences
  • Work closely with the communications manager and attend branch meetings to ensure fundraising activities and outcomes are aligned with branch activities

The right candidate will have a strong interest in fundraising and marketing, ideally with relevant experience and/or qualifications. They will be excellent communicators, both written and face to face. They will also be well organised and able to work unsupervised for much of the time. Basic computer skills will be necessary.
