Since we launched the AIYA website last year, we’ve had a great response, with more than 4,500 visitors so far and a huge number of subscribers on social media and email. Since February, we’ve also been publishing an AIYA Blog, which has already collected a range of interesting articles presenting a youth perspective on the Australia-Indonesia relationship. Going forward, we’d like to continue growing – which is why we’ve decided to advertise for a volunteer website editor.

Working with me and AIYA’s operations manager Rachelle Cole, your main responsibility would be sourcing and posting content for the AIYA website. Besides this blog, we run semi-regular career champions profiles, share advice on working and studying in Indonesia, and have begun to share job opportunities through our own jobs board.

If you have a background or experience in writing, research, or particularly journalism, we think this role would be a great fit. Candidates should have excellent written English, ideally with some proficiency in Indonesian, too.

Besides access to an audience of more than 3,000 young Australians and Indonesians, you’ll have the opportunity to work with AIYA’s partner organisations, our national executive and chapters around Australia and Indonesia.

If you’re interested in applying for the role, just send an email through to [email protected] introducing yourself, explaining the sort of content that you’d like to see on the AIYA website, and setting out how you’d go about creating it. Don’t forget to attach a copy of your CV, too.

About AIYA

If you haven’t heard of us before, we’re a non-government, youth-led organisation that aims to better connect young people in Australia and Indonesia to each other and to Indonesia-related opportunities. AIYA’s objectives are threefold:

  • connecting young Australians and Indonesians to each other, and to opportunities to develop careers on or in Indonesia;
  • informing young people about avenues for engaging with Indonesia and Australia;
  • inspiring business, governments and other organisations to facilitate youth engagement between Australia and Indonesia.

We have active communities on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
