Organisation profile

Landcare NSW is the peak representative body for the community Landcare movement in NSW.

The Landcare movement is a community-based approach to managing and protecting our natural resources – creating more productive and sustainable farms, conserving our environment, and building more cohesive and resilient communities.

With over 60,000 active Landcarers in NSW, Landcare NSW acts as the conduit between local Landcare communities and key decision makers, working to ensure that our Landcarers are supported at every level by providing leadership, skills, resources and representation.

About the role

The Regional Landcare Coordinator (New England) will play a key role in coordinating, expanding and multiplying on the benefits delivered at the local, district and network scale by Local Landcare Coordinators.

The Regional role will work within the needs of the New England region, and be closely tied to the outcomes of the NSW Landcare Support Program. The roles of the Regional Coordinators will be less to do with the empowerment of specific groups and more to do with connecting and supporting Landcare networks and groups in the region.

The Regional Landcare Coordinator will support regional approaches to priority planning, regional collaboration, regional organisation and the capacity for Landcare in their region to participate more effectively in larger scale opportunities.

The position will be guided by a Steering Committee.

The Regional Landcare Coordinator will play an important role in facilitating Community-of-Practice with Local Landcare Coordinators in the region and will link to other key stakeholders including Regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitators, Landcare NSW, Local Land Services and other partners.
