About us ✨
The Creative Co-Operative is Australia’s first startup agency 100% owned, led and operated by Black Women and Women of Colour focused on lifting the economic and social access barriers faced by our communities. Whilst new kids on the block, we’ve already achieved a lot including winning the SmartCompany Smart 50 Awards Community Hero of the Year Award for 2021: https://www.instagram.com/creative_cooperative/
To achieve our ambitious goal of getting $700M into the pockets of Bla(c)k Women and Women of Colour in the next 10 years, we look for the following Values in candidates:
- High performance (the goal’s a big one – we don’t take shortcuts when it comes to serving our community)
- Flexibility (we’re not a 9 to 5 because we know that that isn’t how community works! However, the beauty of working in a high performance team means everyone is pulling their weight, so no one should need to pull late hours)
- Community (we measure our value by the happiness of our community. If we’re getting >80 NPS scores – which we are, in fact 87.5% for our last event – it means we are doing the job correctly)
- Accountability (if we f*ck up, we own up and fix it on time)
- Responsibility (the work / projects are under our care and we go above and beyond to ensure we’ve covered all bases and acted diligently at all times – we are strict with deadlines and take pride in exceptional quality)
If you’re tired of your hard work making rich institutions richer and looking for meaningful work – then come join us in our mission to be the century’s greatest tech driver in racial equity.
As a social enterprise focussed on employment of the communities we serve, we strongly encourage self-identifying Bla(c)k Women and Women of Colour (including Non-Binary and Trans People) to apply for this paid contract position.
If you do not identify with any of the above identities and would instead like to participate in this project Pro Bono as a Co-Conspirator, we would welcome your application as outlined above. Please outline your intention in the email subject line.
