Specifically, the Impact Manager is responsible for:

  • the maintenance and integrity of the philanthropic funds register, especially ensuring all specific purpose and donor directed funds are recorded appropriately and used for their intended purposes;
  • informing colleagues about the appropriate use of philanthropic funds and the amount of funding available for each purpose;
  • assisting with the process of applying for funding for projects;
  • tracking approved projects, ensuring they are evaluated and reporting on them and their impact to provide exceptional care for our supporters and to meet our fiduciary obligations; and making sure all supporters are appropriately acknowledged and recognised upon completion of projects.

You will have a track record of effectively managing and reporting on grant funding and working with a diverse and complex group of stakeholders. You are passionate about philanthropy and feel strongly about providing a rewarding experience for donors. With well-developed interpersonal and communication skills you will work collaboratively to deliver results for the immediate and long-term goals of UnitingCare.

You will have:

  • A high degree of competence in Microsoft Office including advanced Excel skills
  • Demonstrated experience in the use of database systems. Salesforce experience would be desirable.
  • Experience with project evaluation and translation.
  • The ability to work independently and as part of a team.
  • Excellent priority-setting, planning and time-management skills with the ability to simultaneously manage multiple projects and meet deadlines.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, including the ability to use negotiation and collaboration skills to deliver outcomes.


The Benefits

This position will offer you the opportunity to impact the exciting new direction for UnitingCare and all of our customers across our services in Queensland and the Northern Territory. You will help drive impact and innovation and make a difference that will improve the lives of our customers and take our organisation into the future.
