About the role

If you’re a highly strategic, insight-driven, messaging expert with an eye for a story and passion for global justice; then this is the job for you.

Highly skilled in the art of framing, you’re able to act as a bridge between research, strategy and creative. Tech savvy, with experience of brand management, content creation, and CX you have a track record of distilling complex problems into simple, insightful and compelling propositions that have driven results.

In this new and exciting role, you’ll lead the development and delivery of Act for Peace’s brand, messaging and content strategy. Using insights from qualitative and quantitative data, you’ll develop the framing for our portfolio of fundraising, campaigning and education propositions. And you’ll manage the team that delivers the content that brings people closer to our cause and demonstrates to supporters the impact they are making.

By developing our existing products, and launching successful new ones (such as the award-winning Ration Challenge), our fundraising income has doubled and our supporter base grown six-fold in recent years.

However, society is changing rapidly. And the way people take action and engage with charities also needs to change if we are to inspire the public to do more, give more and stay longer in the fight against injustice.

That’s why we’ve recently made a structural and cultural shift to focus on supporter experience, and are developing new ways for people to learn, give and take action. We have invested in the team, the technology and the research insights we need, and now we’re keen to put your communication strategies into action.

You’ll be working alongside a motivated and experienced management team – and you’ll be making a big and growing our contribution to achieving safety, justice and dignity in communities threatened by conflict and disaster.

This is a part-time, 0.6 FTE, permanent position based in our Sydney CBD office. The salary will be negotiated depending upon the skills and experience of the successful candidate.

About the organisation

Organisation Name : Act for Peace

Today, there are more refugees, asylum seekers and displaced people worldwide than at any time since records began. That’s more than 70 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.



A peaceful world where all people share a safe, just and dignified life.



We empower passionate people to work together to achieve safety, justice and dignity in communities threatened by conflict and disaster.




We respond fast to emergencies around the world – local or global, large or small – to reach people with life-saving assistance when they are at their most vulnerable.  We also work with local people on how to identify risks and prepare for the next disaster, which saves lives when an emergency hits.


We’re committed to amplifying the voices of the most vulnerable, empowering them to claim their own rights and hold their own governments to account.  We also mobilise passionate Australians, like you, to demand change.  When we come together to speak with one voice, it sends a clear message that people in power can’t ignore.


Lasting change takes time. We’re committed to long-term development projects that help communities to tackle their own problems – whether that’s through livelihoods and vocational training, health and hygiene programs or psychosocial and educational support.


We believe local people are best placed to respond to and solve problems in their own communities.  By partnering with local organisations, we aim to build on and strengthen local knowledge, people and resources, to help find solutions to complex problems and create solutions that work.
