Save the Children is no ordinary not-for-profit.

We’re ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children’s rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We run programs in Australia and overseas and, if there’s a disaster - like an earthquake, drought or conflict – we are there on the ground.

You will be part of our International Development Programs team. In these two (2) permanent full-time positions based in East Melbourne (relocating to Carlton in Q4 2016), you will be a key escalation point for SCI Country Offices while working on identifying and nurturing relationships with key institutional donors, tracking new business development opportunities and winning new program funding.

  • Supervising, coaching and developing a team member
  • Securing new program funding through key relationships and business development opportunities
  • Representing SCA at events and meetings to build our brand awareness
  • Collaborating effectively with the High Value Consulting and Improved Business Development Teams, and Technical Assistance resources
    Working at Save the Children is more than just a job.
We want you to be successful.

Therefore, as a minimum, you'll need:
  • Demonstrated planning and organising skills, including financial skills
  • Exceptional experience proactively identifying and winning new business opportunities
  • Very strong relationship building experience
  • Experience in effective negotiation, problem solving and managing change
  • Tertiary qualifications in a relevant discipline
Working at Save the Children is more than just a job.

It’s the feeling of knowing that your work is contributing to making the world a better place for children and working with others who feel the same. We offer a competitive salary including generous salary packaging benefits, a friendly and flexible work environment, and great career opportunities – both locally and internationally.
