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.

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.
The Regional Landcare Coordinator outcomes will be measured against key performance indicators including the delivery of strategic regional initiatives, collaboration and regional scale participation.
Landcare NSW is an equal opportunity employer, with employment under the organisation’s standard employment agreement or as negotiated. Attendance at meetings outside of normal work hours and travel around the region will be required.
