About the Role
You’re looking for a challenging and inspiring role where you can use your skills to design something new, innovative and impactful. But above all, you want a position that will enable you to put your passion for global justice into action and make a difference where it’s needed most in the world.
You are strategic, curious, driven and love using your initiative to solve complex problems. You have a good understanding of marketing principles. And you’re an effective project manager who can bring together key stakeholders to deliver a project on time and on budget.
This is a rare opportunity to work exclusively on the fun stuff! In this role, you will be leading the development of a new fundraising product within the regular/committed giving space. You will be responsible for managing the innovation pipeline, right from the beginning (identifying the supporter insight), through ideation, concept testing, minimum viable product testing, right through to business casing your new product.
While you’ll be leading this project, you’ll be working with and supported by an experienced and innovative team throughout (they’ve won the Fundraising Institute of Australia’s ‘Most Innovative Campaign’ award twice).
This is an eight month contract at 0.6 FTE. This may be extended or a permanent position created to launch and manage the new product, depending on the strength of the business case. The position is based in our Sydney CBD office, and the salary will be negotiated depending upon the skills and experience of the successful candidate.
About the Organisation
Today, there are more refugees, asylum seekers and displaced people worldwide than at any time since World War II. That’s more than 65 million people forced to flee their homes to escape conflict and disaster.
It’s a terrible injustice. And one that we can, and must, overcome.
We believe that when people all over the world work together, big changes really are possible. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to act in partnership with other passionate people, like you, across the globe to achieve safety, justice and dignity in communities threatened by conflict and disaster. We don’t think there’s any task more important.
Since 1949 our supporters have provided food, shelter, education, healthcare and training to help the world’s most vulnerable prepare for, cope with and recover from crisis.
Together we’re tackling the root causes of injustice, and are building a brighter future for everyone. We hope that you’ll join us in this vital mission.
OUR VISION: A peaceful world where all people share a safe, just and dignified life.
OUR PURPOSE: We empower passionate people to work together to achieve safety, justice and dignity in communities threatened by conflict and disaster.
HOW WE WORK:
When an emergency occurs, we respond fast to give people what they need most to survive. We’re in for the long-haul too, supporting communities in protracted crises until they’re able to get back on their feet. We also work with communities at risk to prepare in advance, which saves lives when disaster strikes.
Lasting change takes time. Your support enables sustainable development projects that help communities to tackle their own problems -whether that’s giving girls a brighter future through education, helping farmers grow enough to eat or supporting refugees to return home safely after a conflict has ended.
WORKING THROUGH PARTNERS
We believe local people are best placed to identify the problems faced by their communities and create solutions that work. So we partner with local organisations on the ground to achieve change. We’re also part of the ACT Alliance, a global network of 140 organisations across 100 countries working together to share knowledge and resources, speak with a louder voice, and ultimately, achieve more impact.
ADVOCACY AND CAMPAIGNS
We work with others to mobilise governments and decision-makers to tackle the root causes of poverty and injustice, not just treat the symptoms. When we come together to speak with one voice, it sends a clear message that people in power can’t ignore.
