About the Role
We’re looking for an experienced individual to manage the due diligence process for potential social investments; this will ensure the icare Foundation invests its significant funds on the basis of thorough analysis and information.
You’ll be working with a diverse mix of creative, curious and smart people who really care about making a difference for people and the NSW community. You will have a mind for getting things done and a heart for people and you will set the bar high through the quality of the work you do and the people-oriented decisions you make.
You’ll bring your significant experience with assessing requests for funding and screening organisations for reputational and project risk to the role. You will be skilled in program design, measurement, planning and budgeting as you analyse and manage a program of potential investments worth $20-30M so that $5-10M in funding can be approved and acquitted by end June 2018 to support financially astute decision-making. You’ll be highly collaborative, have outstanding communication skills and also maintain the highest standards of professionalism in a fast-paced environment.
It’s an exciting workplace where no two days are the same. But on a typical day you might find yourself:
- Reviewing, analysing and recommending potential investments against preliminary selection criteria, identifying and addressing any gaps, and make a recommendation for the investment to progress, or put on a development path for long term opportunity
- Liaising with potential partners to gain insights and understanding of their business and the nature of the social investment which icare is being asked to support
- Working with internal and external stakeholders to develop a robust program logic and measurement approach so the investment is well designed to have successful outcomes
- Developing and coordinating inputs to a complete funding proposal with project plan and budget so that the investment can be approved
