Supporting the independent education community

Position Vacant - IEU Organiser Sydney

The Union is currently seeking applications for a fulltime Organiser to be based in one of our Sydney offices (Ultimo or Parramatta). The successful applicant will ideally commence duties in Term 1 2018. Members from all sectors of non government education are invited to apply.


Duties will include school visits, industrial representation of members and the implementation of IEU campaigns. Familiarity with issues affecting early career teachers and a capacity to relate to them is highly desirable. Some weekends and evening work will be required. Overnight travel may also be necessary and a current driver’s licence is essential.


The successful applicant will be appointed under contract by the Executive of the Union and accountable to the Secretary in the first instance.

Salary will be in accordance with the IEU Officers salary scale that has links to the Sydney Catholic Schools teachers’ rates. Starting salary is usually one incremental step above that which a member would earn in 2018.

IEU Organisers retain their membership of the Union and are non voting members of the IEU Council.


Applications must be made in writing, setting out background, experience and other relevant material, including union involvement, that might support the application and forwarded to:
