About the role
Who we are
Social Ventures Australia (SVA) is a not-for-profit organisation that works with partners to alleviate disadvantage – towards an Australia where all people and communities thrive. We influence systems to deliver better social outcomes for people by learning about what works in communities, helping organisations be more effective, sharing our perspectives and advocating for change.
SVA’s Consulting team supports leaders to make hard decisions, galvanise teams to sustain success and share insights with the social sector. We have more than 40 staff in our consulting team with offices in Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. Since 2007, we have developed unique, on-the-ground experience supporting over 300 clients through 900 engagements. We work on society’s most challenging issues including housing, employment, education, mental health, disability, and Indigenous disadvantage.
Analysts work on client projects as part of a broader project team managed and supported by senior members of the team. While no two client projects are the same, Analysts are typically responsible for a stream of work which may require research, data modelling and analysis, and development of presentation or report to communicate their findings. A typical project lasts between two to three months and in the position, you will typically work on two to three projects at a time.
Who you are
This stimulating opportunity will best suit a self-motivated individual who shows initiative with a proven ability to ensure key tasks and requirements are taken through to completion.

You will have strong interpersonal skills and work well in a team environment. Previous experience in research, data modelling and analysis, building presentations and report writing will see you be successful in this role.
This fantastic opportunity provides exposure to challenging and rewarding opportunities across the social sector working on society’s most important challenges.
