Dream Job Ready

Dream Job Ready with Dane Sharp and Jason Olive (Marketing Director, Movember) | Dream Job Ready EP43.

2020 has been one for the history books, but it's been a pivotal and important year for non-profit organisation and charity, Movember.

Our mental health has been pressure-tested even more than usual, with Covid-19 disrupting and impacting life as we know it.

Movember is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health on a global scale, focusing on mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

Across the world, men are dying six years earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons. Movember's mission (by 2030) is to see the number of men dying prematurely reduce by 25%. Lofty goal, but so critical.

Since the first moustaches were grown in 2003, Movember has raised over AUD $1 billion for men’s health, funding more than 1,250 innovative programs ranging from groundbreaking clinical tests and trials to game-changing mental health studies and programs.

Jason Olive is Movember's Marketing Director and has a dream job with the organisation. After building a healthy career working in advertising agencies, he jumped to the non-profit in July 2019 and hasn't looked back. Awarded CMO 50's 'One to Watch' in 2020, Jason is proud of the work his team and the organisation at large has done this year, but knows its the diverse community of supporters that need the praise.

If your dream job is working for a charity, this episode is a must listen. Jason shares great advice about how to find the right organisation and cause for you and gives a rundown of what responsibilities his role has. I also asked Jason about the impacts that Coronavirus has had to mental health this year and what trends Movember has seen. We discuss the impacts (positive and negative) of working from home, the readjustments we'll need to make again in the new year and about work-place mental health in general.

If you're going through a tough time or know someone who is, remember you're not alone and there is help available.

Keep a lookout for your friends, family and co-workers. If it’s your mate, dad, brother, partner who is struggling, these conversations can be tough. To build your confidence, check out Movember Conversations, a free online ‘conversation simulation’ tool created by Movember and guided by an international team of mental health experts https://conversations.movember.com/.

For instant assistance, you can call Lifeline 24 hours a day and have a chat with someone. The phone number is 13 11 14.

If you're not in Australia, please lookup a similar organisation in your area.
