Landcare Facilitator and Regional Landcare Coordinator Extension to 30 June 2021

Landcare Facilitator and Regional Landcare Coordinator Extension

The Victorian Government is extending contracts for existing Landcare Facilitators and Regional Landcare Coordinators to 30 June 2021.

These contract extensions for existing Landcare Facilitators and Regional Landcare Coordinators will ensure continuity of employment for the facilitators and coordinators who play a vital role in supporting the work of Victorian Landcare and environmental volunteer groups.

An application process for organisations that want to employ a Landcare Facilitator beyond 30 June 2021 will be run by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planningin early 2021. 

To help prepare in advance of the formal invitation for applications, Landcare Victoria advises groups and networks to:

  • Plan and document your need for a facilitatator and what you intend they will achieve, considering State and regional policy objectives
  • Consider and clarify the geopraphic scope of your proposal for a facilitator – be clear about which groups will they support and over what area of land
  • Coordinate your proposal with neighbouring groups and networks to avoid gaps and overlaps and to ensure your proposal is as inclusive as possible
  • Ensure you have all the necessary governance arrangements in place to ensure you can discharge your role as an employer – consider consulting the Employee Referal Service through Landcare Victoria if you need clarification
  • Ensure you have all necessary insurances in place – your Landcare Victoria membership should be sufficient in most cases
