Results International (Australia) is a not for profit organisation that is part of a global network of organisations working to bring an end to poverty. Results has been operating in Australia for 35 years through a combination of staff led and volunteer driven advocacy at a grassroots, national and global level.
We work with parliamentarians, the media and members of the community to influence political decisions that will bring an end to extreme poverty. This includes pushing for an increase in Australia’s overseas aid budget and increased pledges to multilateral bodies that work on global health and poverty alleviation.
At the global level we work closely with our partners at ACTION to improve equitable access to health and within Australia we act as the Secretariat to the Australian TB Caucus.
We are highly respected for our policy and advocacy work and have a high profile within the Australian Federal Parliament and within the international development sector.
Reporting to the CEO, this is a key leadership position within the organisation with campaigns being the core function of our work. The Head of Campaigns is responsible for leading Results’ campaigns strategy development and implementation. The role oversees campaign staff, including our volunteer program, so has a prominent management component. It also involves liaising with a wide range of stakeholders, from parliamentarians to the media, donors and other not for profit partners as well as being a key point of contact with our international network.
This is a diverse and challenging role covering a range of organisational functions. Success in this role will be measured by the establishment of a high performing team, high impact, highly visible campaigns, strong relationships with parliamentarians and a diversified and growing base of volunteers.
As Results is currently building a high performing campaigns team, you will have the opportunity to select staff. Once complete, you will manage a team of four people, covering grassroots engagement, campaigns, research and communications.
We are looking for someone who is flexible and adaptable, able to work at a strategic level and in a hands-on capacity as required.
Due to the nature of our work and the fact that we work as part of an international partnership the ability to work outside of normal office hours on occasion is a must. The role also involves some domestic travel and will involve occasional international travel once borders open again.
We’re looking for an enthusiastic self-starter who is passionate about the work of Results and aligned with its values, goals and objectives. An experienced influencer with political prowess, you know and thrive on politics and the ability to create change at all levels and know what makes people get on board with a social cause and take action.
A strong people person, you will have the ability to engage and lead a team, inspire volunteer advocates across the country, and build and facilitate a strong and supportive staff culture.
Results advocates for positive policy change and resourcing with the Australian Parliament, Government agencies, as well as international bodies such as the World Bank and UN agencies, so we are looking for someone who is able to move seamlessly between high level thinking and engagement, and promoting creative local actions to meet strategic goals.
Competitive salary plus superannuation. This is a full time position based at our office in North Sydney with some time working from home (Results has a flexible work arrangement). As a registered charity, Results employees are entitled to salary packaging, thereby reducing their tax liability and increasing their take home pay.
Results is an equal opportunity employer and encourages anyone who meets the selection criteria to apply.
