About the organisation

Organisation Name : Foundation for Young Australians

We’re the largest independent nonprofit in Australia dedicated to backing the capacity, voice, and power of young changemakers. With a team of more than 50 strategists, advocates, facilitators and researchers (to name a few) our headquarters are in Melbourne (Naarm) but our teams work remotely around the country.

Our values

  • We respect and back First Nations young people and their communities
  • We back young people
  • We shift power to young people with lived experience
  • We dream big
  • We care about each other
  • We are always learning 
  • We have fun

Our work is guided by a commitment to beating injustice and we strongly encourage applications from Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people, young people, people of colour, women, people with disability, people from LGBTIQA+ communities, and more. We acknowledge our sector has systematically excluded these communities.

About the role


You’ll play a vital role in Australia’s leading organisation backing young people to create change. Working with the CEO, Executive Team and Board, you will coordinate our team and help drive forward key initiatives.


You’ll keep our Executive Team and Board processes humming and ensure our CEO is optimally prepared for engagements throughout the week. You’ll support a broad range of organisational priorities through research, document preparation and and review, stakeholder management, scheduling and logistics. You’ll also play a key role in internal organisational communications.


You bring senior experience in executive-level coordination & support such as in Senior EA or Chief of Staff roles, a succinct and collaborative communications style, a positive attitude and an ability to prioritise and refocus. Experience in the non-profit sector is welcome but not essential.


FYA is backing young people to make change from their local area to national policy. We’d love to have you on the team!
