Who we are
CERES is an award-winning environmental education centre, urban farm and social enterprise hub located on Wurundjeri land in Brunswick East, Coburg and two sites in Preston. Once a landfill site and wasteland, today CERES’ Brunswick East site is a thriving, vibrant community. With over 450,000 visitors a year, CERES is the most visited environmental centre in Australia.

CERES School of Nature and Climate consists of three delivery areas: Student Programs, Teacher Programs and Adult Learning. Our education offerings  are designed to develop skills, leadership and resilience. We strive to equip people to think differently, act for the planet and be resilient and responsive citizens. 

What we need done

The CERES School of Nature and Climate is a response to the climate and ecological crisis. 

The CERES School of Nature and Climate teams require the skills of an experienced administrator to respond to customer enquiries, monitor and process bookings and provide operational support onsite. 

This role will engage with our school customers, by responding to queries on multiple platforms. Providing clear communication to CERES educators and school teachers about booked programs and by supporting educators with operational assistance. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn our engaging and inspiring student excursion activities and teach them onsite once you’re trained to do so. 

Who we looking for

Our vision is for everyone to fall in love with the Earth again, so we’re looking for someone who shares CERES’ values and a passion for environmental sustainability.

We’re seeking someone who has excellent problem solving skills with the ability to adapt and prioritise tasks and show initiative in the delivery and coordination of day-to-day operations. 

Integral to this role will be experience providing friendly and timely customer service, working knowledge of Excel, and some experience in the use of cloud-based apps.

 

We are looking for an individual who will thrive in a busy working environment and is passionate about environmental education; and keen to learn and teach our student excursion activities.

In addition to a connection to social causes, you will have access to:

  • Collaborative, values-centred and highly supportive team environment
  • Generous Award/Non – Award entitlements, including paid breaks
  • Access to all CERES’ unique environments, including the park, with strong links to the environment and community
