Caring for our Bays Coordinator (pt)
Bellarine Catchment Network
Bellarine Peninsula, Victoria
Part-time (0.6 FTE, 3 days per week). $55,000 - $75,000 p.a. (pro rata)
The Bellarine Catchment Network
The Bellarine Catchment Network (BCN) is a network of local environmental organisations. The BCN Vision is “The Bellarine Catchment Network region will work towards healthy, well connected and resilient wetlands, waterways and native vegetation ecosystems; sustainable agricultural and land management practices; and a community which is engaged and involved in protecting and managing the natural environment.”
The Bellarine Peninsula is 34,000 ha in area with 137 km of bay, estuary and ocean frontage. Only about 5% of it retains its original vegetation cover. It is largely rural, (sheep, cattle and cropping) with 7 growing urban centres and development across all town areas.
This position has the primary function of delivering the Project and Grant ‘Caring For our Bays’, which aims to lift the profile and appreciation of Corio Bay and the Bellarine shoreline of Port Phillip Bay, raise awareness of litter and its impact and reduce the amount of litter, sediments and nutrients that enter the waterways and ultimately bays.
The incumbent will provide strategic leadership, management and support to the operations of the Caring for our Bays program, and will implement and coordinate government and corporate grants, programs and groups in litter and waterway management, community awareness, capacity building and participation that relate to CFOB and linked BCN programs.
