About the role

As a youth run organisation, Oaktree is always looking for innovative ways for young people to lead, demand and create a more just world. To do so, Oaktree is broadening its strategies so we can gain access to more resources that will allow us to turn our vision into a reality. The role of the Director of Grants and Philanthropy is an integral part of this success, as Oaktree looks to apply for grants as well as engaging philanthropic organisations and major donors.


As the Director of Grants and Philanthropy, a typical day might look like:

  • Creating, implementing and communicating strategy for the Grants and Philanthropy portfolio;
  • Developing pitches for ongoing, scaled up and new programs and initiatives at Oaktree;
  • Ensuring strong internal communication and organising team priorities;
  • Making first point of contact introduction with funders and major donors as well as managing ongoing relationships;
  • Supporting the grant seeking and writing processes;
  • Growing new and sustainable sources of revenue for Australia’s largest youth-empowerment organisation.


What you will get out of it:

  • Experience in the not-for-profit sector;
  • Access to training, networking and mentoring within the not-for-profit sector;
  • Experience in liaising with corporations, foundations and levels of government;
  • Leadership and management skills and exposure to high level organisational strategy;
  • The opportunity to be across both Oaktree’s international and domestic programs and initiatives;
  • The opportunity to play an important role in the movement to create a more just world.
