Positions Available

Seeking expressions of interest for positions with Why Warriors

We are seeking expression of interest from people who would like to fill the following roles:


Location: Galiwin’ku, Elcho Island, NT.
Applications close: 26th May 2014

Why Warriors works for the empowerment of Yolŋu (the People of NE Arnhem Land, NT) and other First Nations people to live out their full potential. To this end, we conduct cross-cultural training nationally and run a not-for-profit community development project in Arnhem Land, the AHED Project. We are seeking an individual discerning a call to work with Indigenous people, who would put our mission before financial gain, and join the Why Warriors team to deliver AHED services, to develop and direct company operations and strategy.

The Why Warriors team operates with a commitment to independence from Government funding and a commitment to being permanently available to help Yolŋu people to transform their own communities. The team shares in the financial limitations this commitment creates for us and each member volunteers part of their time.

This is an exciting role that provides the opportunity to lead a small, passionate, highly committed and experienced team. The General Manager will have the opportunity to live in an Indigenous community and interact directly with clients, and become an integral part of groundbreaking grassroots projects. The successful individual will have a passion for empowering Indigenous people, a willingness to learn and engage with Yolŋu people and culture, and to work towards calling Arnhem Land home for the medium to long term. The successful applicant will have skills and experience in business management, community development, and team leadership.
