SHAPE THE FUTURE OF DIY

Join the Kommittee

Create social change and help shape the future of the community

Kustom Kommune is offering Kommittee positions to its current members to become the team responsible for shaping the growth, diversification and expansion of offerings to its members and the greater motorcycling community.

Our goal is to become a global mentor and inspiration to assist more communities to come together, work collaboratively, share knowledge and create new networks to improve mental health for those that need support.

Since 2013 Kustom Kommune has been offering DIY Motorcycle services to the Victorian moto-community and has both inspired and mentored numerous spaces around the globe to launch similar projects. We want to give our members more opportunity to play a role in shaping the future of the space and help create a truly world class community.

Kustom Kommune is a Social Enterprise; an idea that became a movement. Kommune does not currently employ any staff (but does employ contractors where needed such as Trainers and Service Providers) and currently all profit is invested back into the community to further our social impact. With members supporting the space by contributing time and skills, we’ll be able to grow our tool and service offerings, reduce cost barriers allowing more people to get involved and remove the time and resource issues, that spaces like ours often face.

The Kommittee will make up the team that both strategises and implement projects that will directly impact the organisation and its members. Each Kommittee member will have a dedicated role and will be a part of all key decision making processes such as:

 

  • How we improve our space for members
  • How we grow our membership base
  • How funds are spent
  • What and how programs are implemented (such as We Kare & Konnections)
  • How we expand as the community grows

 

We are looking for passionate, dedicated and skilled individuals to fill the following Kommittee roles. Some roles maybe split into multiple parts dependant on final scope.

 

 

 

Why join the Kommittee?

 

You’ll become a key part in the defining the direction of the Kommune and will help shape the future of moto-culture.
 
You’ll be a part of a highly social group working towards creating an inclusive, supportive and efficient space open to everyone.
 
Renumeration, benefits and rewards for the team, including volunteers, will be decided by you, the Kommittee.
