About us

Illawarra Christian Education is a non-denominational, non-profit organisation with a desire to see families of the Illawarra able to access high quality Christian education.

Our educational model enables parents to be directly involved in the direction of their school through their participation in the Illawarra Association for Christian Parent-Controlled Education.

Our schools (Illawarra Christian School and Calderwood Christian School) are founded on solid evangelical Christian principles and a desire to bring parents and teachers together to instruct and lead our children with exemplary education which views the world through a biblical lens.

About the role

We are seeking an innovative, creative, energetic, and enthusiastic Content & Marketing Assistant to join our Communications and Marketing team.  This unique opportunity will span both Illawarra Christian School and Calderwood Christian School and cover all aspects of life in both our schools.

As part of the Communications and Marketing team, the Content & Marketing Assistant is responsible for finding and telling the stories of our schools through the creation and curation of compelling written and visual content for use in print, digital and social media channels.

This is a fast-paced role which will require skill in juggling the competing demands of multiple stakeholders and the ability to quickly turn out high quality and engaging content which aligns with the schools’ respective communications and marketing plans.

The successful applicant will have a passion for storytelling, and will enjoy taking a design brief and creating marketing assets across a range of formats (social media/website/print media).

  2. Link to (or uploaded file of) a short video reel you have produced (up to approx. 1 minute) accompanied by a paragraph explaining the background behind its creation: Was it created in response to a specific event, or in response to a brief asking for something in particular?
