About the Role

Major Gifts Fundraiser

  • Vision Australia is growing: Full Time Opportunity in both Kooyong, Melbourne & Parramatta, Sydney
  • Raise the bar in Major Gifts
  • Over 384,000 Australians live with blindness or low vision

Vision Australia – incorporating Seeing Eye Dogs – is the largest national provider of blindness and low vision services in Australia. We help members of the community who are blind or have low vision, to live the lives they choose.

As part of its ongoing strategic plan, the Philanthropy Team has developed a sophisticated, evolutionary and ambitious approach to Major Gifts Fundraising – which includes methodically growing its team.

Reporting to the Philanthropy Manager, you will develop and manage a portfolio of major gift prospects, build a strong pipeline and play a key and integral part in the Major Gifts program achieving its ambitious 5-year plan.

Vision Australia has a superb career opportunity for an energetic, positive and highly motivated self-starter – a person with demonstrated success in relationship-based fundraising with a genuine ambition and determination to reach and exceed agreed-upon targets, and who:

  • Enjoys making the ASK – and setting aspirational goals for themselves & others
  • Embraces change – demonstrating an openness to creative & innovative thinking

The role is unique and rare – embracing real meaning and a sense of purpose that offers challenge, reward, personal growth and ongoing professional development. An abundance of high-net worth prospects and an energised, committed and enthusiastic Philanthropy Team and Fundraising Division is what distinguishes this opportunity from others and what defines Vision Australia as a true employer of choice.

Working as part of Vision Australia you will enjoy a values based organisation with benefits including:

  • Friendly values-based working environments
  • Generous salary packaging options
  • Exciting career paths
  • Exceptional professional development opportunities
  • Flexible working arrangements

We’re always on the lookout for energetic, motivated people who share our values to be Person Centred, Accountable, Collaborative, Commercially Focused and Agile.

As part of Vision Australia’s commitment to being an inclusive employer and embedding a culture where staff, volunteers and clients can be themselves and feel safe, and to protecting the best interests and safety of children and vulnerable people, successful applicants will be subject to a number of pre-employment checks including criminal history and working with children.
