About the role

Who we are

Social Ventures Australia (SVA) is a not-for-profit organisation that works with partners to alleviate disadvantage and 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.

The Programs team works with partners to pilot, prove, refine, and scale effective approaches to tackling disadvantage. Our current portfolio of 9 programs mainly focuses on improved outcomes for people and communities ‘cradle to career’. Each program promotes ‘systemic change’: intentionally nudging, changing, influencing, and incentivising complex social service systems to support better outcomes for the people who need them most to overcome the challenges they face in order to live a life of dignity.
SVA’s Programs portfolio includes emblematic programs such as Evidence for Learning which works to promote wider adoption of evidence-based practice through the Australian education system
The Programs team works in close collaboration with the Fundraising and Partnerships, Marketing and Communications teams and other staff across SVA.
The position
The Administration Coordinator plays a key role in ensuring the smooth operation of the business using a range of effective and high-level administrative skills and providing efficient, professional, and confidential support to the Programs team. Being effective in this role means providing key information and focused support to the Executive Director, Programs and Partnerships and the Director, Evidence for Learning, including the provision of secretariat support for several advisory groups.  Support for the rest of the team will usually be for major or complex scheduling and administrative items.
The position includes liaison and coordination within the team and other SVA teams while assisting with special projects to improve operational efficiency and contributing to the overall objectives of Social Ventures Australia.
