Australia for UNHCR is the UN Refugee Agency’s national partner in Australia, raising awareness and funds to support UNHCR’s global emergency response to humanitarian crises. It achieves this through the generosity of Australian individual donors, trusts, foundations and other organisations who donate to and partner with Australia for UNHCR to support its goals. Established in 2000 as part of a global fundraising network, it has now raised more than $330 million from a broad network of individuals, community and corporate partners.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and dedicated customer service specialist to join our busy Donor Care team providing a high quality, timely and positive donor experience, to fill a 9 month parental leave position.
