Job Description:


We’re looking for a talented, energetic marketing and communication professional who wants to use his or her skills to help us develop and manage our communication strategy.

This is full-time role split between Gymea Baptist Church ("GBC") (24 hours/week) and Southern Community Welfare ("SCW") (12 hours/week).

Southern Community Welfare is a ministry of GBC that provides professional community services (e.g., counselling, case management, and community education). It is governed by a separate constitution and board, but remains a vital part of GBC’s vision to see lives changed by Jesus.

The essentials of the role would be the same for both organisations, but with a greater emphasis on communicating with and expanding the donor base for SCW as well as raising the profile of their social enterprise.


The Marketing & Communications Manager formally reports to the Senior Pastor of GBC but will receive day-to-day direction from the Senior Pastor and the Director of SCW for the respective components of the role.
Start Date: January 2019.

Key Outcomes

There are three primary objectives of this role that are true for both GBC and SCW.
1.         Brand consistency across all communication.
2.         A strong and growing social media presence.
3.         Increasing engagement with our wider community and donor base.
Primary Responsibilities
  • Develop and implement new branding for GBC and SCW that is consistent and effective.
  • Serve as the brand manager, responsible for safeguarding how both brands are portrayed in all communication pieces.
  • Create a system of quality control (e.g., style guide) for all the communication the organisations produce.
  • Identify, develop, and deploy volunteer writers to create content.
  • Create and maintain a church wide social media strategy that supports the vision of both organisations.
  • Oversee the publication of regular communication: E-news, website, Facebook, Partnership Newsletter, podcasts, annual reports, etc. and develop others as required.

Job Requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree in marketing, communications, journalism, or equivalent work experience.
  • Excellent communicator (both written and verbal) and creative thinker with the ability to use data to inform strategy.
  • Strong attention to detail.
  • Keen understanding of modern branding and marketing techniques.
  • Ability to effectively utilise social media.
  • Demonstrated understanding of communications to a Christian church community.
  • Growing Christian faith and character.
  • A commitment to the mission of the church.
  • Additional skills that are desirable include: graphic design, web design.
    It is desirable, but not absolutely necessary, that the successful candidate become a part of the GBC community of faith.
