Today, our world is experiencing more disasters, in more complex environments, than ever before. Disaster affected communities need help, and Australians want to respond.
The Project Director will be responsible for leadership, coordination and implementation for the Emergency Action Alliance. Reporting to the EAA’s Board and engaging with the membership, the Project Director will motivate a small project team and engage seconded expertise from member agencies to achieve desired outcomes.
Success in this role requires a dynamic, motivated individual with significant experience and a strong commitment to supporting communities affected by disaster through leadership, management, operations, and fundraising. An entrepreneurial mindset and strong operational expertise is essential.
About the organisation
17 of Australia’s top emergency response agencies have collaborated to form the Emergency Action Alliance with the purpose of mobilising the Australian public’s response to the world’s largest disasters through a coordinated appeals mechanism. EAA members have prepared a ‘minimum viable product’ model, and we are now in the process of registering the EAA as a legal entity. The EAA has the support of the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and the interest of a major media outlet. ChildFund Australia is the hiring entity for the Project Director and will manage the EAA’s finances until such time as the EAA’s legal entity is established.
