Positions Vacant

Marketing & Communications Executive

Based in at our Sydney offices. 

The Hunger Project is a global, non-religious, non-profit organisation working to end world hunger by 2030. We believe that hunger can end, and ours is the generation that can eliminate it once and for all. In Africa, South Asia and Latin America, The Hunger Project empowers people to lead lives of Self-Reliance, meet their own basic needs and build better futures for their children. We believe people who currently live in poverty are not the problem – they are the solution. We don’t see a billion mouths to feed, we see a billion human beings who are enterprising and resilient. Our work is to unlock their leadership, creativity and capacity so that they can be the key to ending their own hunger. Our programs provide training and services to village partners covering health, education and adult literacy, nutrition, improved farming techniques and food security, micro-finance loans, water and sanitation and HIV/AIDS prevention.

The Hunger Project is an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) employer and strongly encourages people from all backgrounds, abilities, and identities to apply for any vacancies.
