eSafety Summer Volunteer Project

Who we are

The Office of the eSafety Commissioner (the Office) is committed to helping all Australians have safe, positive experiences online.

We provide online safety education for Australian children and young people, and complaints services for young Australians who experience serious cyberbullying, and for Australians who wish to report illegal online content.

Our remit has recently expanded to include providing support and resources to victims of image-based abuse (so-called 'revenge porn'), older Australians and women experiencing technology-facilitated abuse.

Our stakeholders include law enforcement agencies (LEAs), educators, parents, students, not-for-profit organisations and various other groups across Australia and internationally.

What we're looking for

We're seeking volunteers with requisite skills to join a small dynamic team to participate in a pilot—the eSafety Summer Volunteer Project. Successful candidates will join the project to help produce informative, engaging video content targeted at LEA stakeholders, raising awareness of the eSafety Office's functions in supporting the law enforcement community.

To join the project, you will have skills or experience in some (or all) of the following:

  • screenwriting and script development
  • directing and/or producing video content or short films
  • advanced video editing 
  • advanced camera operation
  • audio recording and production
  • lighting for video production
  • Adobe After Effects, motion graphics and/or animation
  • working in multiplatform media, including social video platforms such as YouTube and Facebook.

Successful candidates will be:

  • passionate about storytelling through film
  • driven to create the very best product
  • ready for the challenge of creating compelling videos for a range of audiences
  • willing to communicate openly and honestly with team members and others involved in the project
  • able to respond professionally to feedback from the eSafety team
  • committed to meeting agreed deadlines
  • currently enrolled in a media course in video production, multimedia or relevant field.

What’s in it for you?

The eSafety Summer Volunteer Project offers successful candidates the opportunity to participate in an unpaid, short term video production project.

In exchange for your time and skills, you will receive meaningful, relevant experience to complement your studies. You will also receive mentoring in project management and work closely with our dynamic marketing and communications team.

Upon completion of the project, you will also receive a letter of reference from the eSafety Office.
