The AMIEU Victorian Branch is seeking expressions of interest from union members who wish to apply to become an Organiser.

The successful applicant will be required to:

  • Make applications and represent members in Fair Work Australia hearings and WorkCover conciliations.
  • Travel extensively to workplaces in metropolitan and regional areas, including overnight trips where required.

  • Together with members negotiate EBAs with employers.

Applicants must hold a current driver’s license with few or no demerit points.

They will need to be able to work collectively with the Victorian Branch Executive, but will also be responsible for managing their time productively and conducting themselves in an honest and respectful manner.
