Applying for these positions

These roles will require commitment of between 4-6 hours per week. Applications for the positions close on 3 November 2015. To apply, please email a copy of your CV and a cover letter of up to 350 words addressing the necessary skills for the role to [email protected].

Both roles are open to young people from Australia or Indonesia who meet the selection criteria outlined.
