Your prospective employer:

This innovative and fast-growing retailer operates within a product category that is dear to the hearts of many Australians.  Delivering a superior product and service offering across a significant, national store network, the business continues to lead the market and command the attention of a loyal and growing customer base.  The organisation has enjoyed the privilege of leveraging its commercial success and customer loyalty to form a Charitable Foundation that makes a tangible difference within the community.  As such, this unique opportunity to manage all aspects of philanthropic activity for the business as the Partnerships and Fundraising Manager could well be considered a ‘pinnacle’ career move.

  • Fundraising: You will co-ordinate all aspects of capital fundraising, including identifying innovative ways and channels to capture new donation opportunities.
  • Relationship management: You will develop and maintain strong internal cross-functional relationships to effectively execute your plan.  Equally, your external relationships with charity partners and donors will be fortified by your development of processes and systems to facilitate and streamline communication.
Here’s what it will take:
