About the role
This is a key moment of transition for SeeBeyondBorders as it looks beyond COVID19 and develops its structure to provide greater local autonomy and sense of purpose. Through its International Alliance, the Charity is developing the capabilities in Donor countries (Australia, the UK and Ireland to date) and maximising opportunities to fund its work in Cambodia while further strengthening the organisation.
SeeBeyondBorders Australia is a signatory to the ACFID Code of Conduct and is accredited to ‘Base’ level with the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). It aims to extend this accreditation to ‘Full’ with an application in September of this year, 2021. Under the terms of the Alliance Agreement, SeeBeyondBorders Australia retains the independence necessary to make its own decisions and maintain accountability to its membership while engaging effectively with the other governing, strategy setting, and policy making bodies of the Alliance.
The purpose for this role is to lead and develop a small team in Australia focused on increasing revenue while representing SeeBeyondBorders to all Australian based stakeholders. A key part of the role will be to manage the relationship with the Australian Government while ensuring that SeeBeyondBorders Australia meets its compliance obligations. Working collaboratively with the international operations of SeeBeyondBorders including counterparts in other Donor countries, will also be essential for success in this role. The Chief Executive Australia will be a member of the International Leadership Team, and the budget holder for Australia.
About the organisation
SeeBeyondBorders’ primary focus is to improve education standards in Cambodia, providing children with access to quality teaching and learning at school. SeeBeyondBorders entities are grouped in an International Alliance with registered charities in Australia, the UK and Ireland (“Donor” countries) and in Cambodia where it operates as a registered international non-government organisation.
From its Cambodian offices in Battambang & Siem Reap Provinces, SeeBeyondBorders conducts programs to teach and guide teachers, while engaging parents and communities to support and encourage their children to get to school. In the work we do in schools, with education systems, and in the way we run the organisation, our aim is to build capability within Cambodia so that ultimately SeeBeyondBorders becomes the professional development provider of choice.
