Join our team as Communications and Digital Co-ordinator
Commonwealth Games Australia is embarking on a program of activities and events that will celebrate Australia’s Commonwealth Games history whilst looking forward to the 2021 Commonwealth Youth Games in Trinidad and Tobago and the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
Two of CGA’s key strategic priorities are ‘Connecting with Communities’ and ‘Presenting a Powerful Brand’. We we are seeking to appoint a Communications and Digital Co-ordinator to work as a member of a small but dynamic marketing, communication and community engagement team in a role that will be critical in telling the stories of Australia’s participation in the Commonwealth Games, celebrating our heritage, whilst also telling the stories of the present and future stars of Australian sport.
Our organisation underwent significant and exciting change in the lead up to the Gold Coast 2018 Games and is now ready to take the next step with an increased focus on our communications and digital channels.
The primary purpose of this role will be to provide timely, accurate and engaging content for the CGA audience, leading to growth across our digital channels. A key component of the role will be to create CGA’s own news channel, providing our existing and new audiences with regular news and information that entertains, engages, informs and educates on Australia’s rich Commonwealth Games history.
Therefore, a passion for and knowledge of Commonwealth Games sports and athletes, along with an interest in the history of the Games is essential. This position will play a key role in building interest, excitement and engagement with the Australian Team in the build up to and during the 2021 Commonwealth Youth Games in Trinidad and Tobago and the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
This role will also be responsible for the activation of CGA branding across all communications and activities, and therefore strong graphic design and multi-media skills will be highly regarded to help bring our stories to life.
