Work with us, run your own program and make a huge difference for conservation and environment protection at this critical time. This is an exciting opportunity for a talented specialist in major gifts fundraising, with 3 years experience in major gifts (or more), to work with other fundraising experts to support the growth of a leading national environmental organisation. We're on a mission to save biodiversity from invasive species. To do this, we must double our income over the next 5 years and the philanthropy program will play a leading role. You'll be joining a fun and dynamic team that applies a donor centric and data driven approach in everything that we do. In a flexible workplace with a great salary and opportunities for professional development you'll be wrapped you made the change.
This is an exciting opportunity for a driven, ambitious and passionate environmentalist to join Australia’s leading advocacy organisation tackling invasive species.
The Invasive Species Council is about to embark on a ten-year journey of growth as we aim to prevent more invasive species-led extinctions by 2030 in the midst of an extinction crisis. To support this growth ISC is looking for an experienced, talented philanthropy executive with least 6 years of fundraising under their belt, of which 3 years were in a major gifts’ role.
We are looking for a switched on and enthusiastic person to lead a growing philanthropy program and inspire the CEO and others to deliver a best practice program to fund our core mission.
You will have a background in running direct marketing fundraising programs that support your major gift program skills. Engaging with existing or potential philanthropists comes naturally to you and you can transform the smallest of encounters into an opportunity to protect biodiversity. You love data and can confidently navigate a spreadsheet and develop a pipeline, just as much as you can a relationship pathway with a funder. You have a knack for developing a great case for support, writing a compelling proposal and enjoy reporting to feed back on your successes.
The team will love your enthusiastic and flexible attitude and your maturity will allow you to happily work autonomously, complete multiple projects at once and contribute positively to our great team culture.
At a personal level you will have a good work ethic, resilience, tenacity, confidence and compassion. You will also be comfortable collaborating and know how to set yourself and the organisation up for success, and are bold enough to do it.
Preferred in the vicinity of a major east coast city with other locations to be considered. The Invasive Species Council supports decentralised working arrangements.
The Invasive Species Council is a non-government donor-funded organisation that seeks strong and effective action to protect the Australian environment from weeds, feral animals, insects, pathogens and other invaders. Invasive species have been the main driver of environmental loss of Australia’s native animals since colonisation and remain one of the main threats to the future survival of all our unique wildlife on land and sea.
Formed in 2002, the Invasive Species Council is Australia’s only environmental organisation dedicated to strategically tackling this issue and has made numerous interventions that have reduced the environmental impacts from invasive species.
