About the role
Stella is currently recruiting for a part-time Development Director (0.6FTE) to help drive our fundraising efforts.
The ideal candidate will bring compelling communication skills, creative thinking, and an innate ability to build relationships. With a focus on individual donors, major gifts, and trusts and foundations, the Development Director makes a vital contribution to Stella’s vision of a vibrant and equitable national culture that values women’s writing.
This opportunity is ideal for a passionate and ambitious fundraiser with a proven track-record, who will work closely with a highly committed Board and ED to achieve extraordinary impact through philanthropy.
The Stella team currently works remotely with key staff members located in both Melbourne and Sydney.

About the organisation
Stella is a small not-for-profit cultural organisation that was founded in 2012 with the first Stella Prize – a major literary award celebrating women’s writing – awarded in 2013. Through a series of strategic initiatives for women writers, Stella champions outstanding literature, supports greater participation in the world of books, and strives to ensure that women’s writing has a prominent place in Australian culture.
With no recurrent government funding, Stella relies on a loyal community of donors, sponsors, and philanthropic trusts and foundations to achieve our cultural change goals. Approximately three-quarters of Stella's revenue comes from private giving and the generosity of our dedicated major donors. In Stella’s tenth year, philanthropic development is a major strategic priority. Stella aims to celebrate our milestone birthday with an expanded suite of initiatives that are contingent on securing appropriate funding.
Stella comprises a small-but-mighty team, who are passionate about literature, equality, and feminism. To succeed in this role, you will be strategic, self-motivated and a keen collaborator. Bringing compelling communication skills and creative thinking, the successful candidate will have an innate ability to build relationships and will be energised by Stella's vision of a vibrant and equitable national culture that values women’s writing.
