Save The Children

Join a national not-for-profit organisation and global movement dedicated to improving the lives of children, families and communities. Channelling your technical expertise in this newly created role, you'll ensure Save the Children programs are of high quality and delivering impact. Your knowledge and experience will contribute to improving the effectiveness of our work, and position Save the Children as a leader in delivering real and measurable outcomes for children, families and communities.

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 safe, living a life free from abuse and neglect. We've been working with families and communities in Australia in every state and territory as a trusted support for children for nearly 70 years. More information on our work in Australia is available here.

Where you come in:

In this full-time, permanent role, you'll have a unique opportunity to apply your business analysis and data governance skills across our Australian Services and reshape how we collect, analyse and learn from data and evidence. You'll work across every business and service delivery team for Australian Services and report to our Head of Practice and Impact Measurement. Based in any capital city of Australia, you'll have flexibility to work from home or from one of our state offices.

You will make an impact by:

  • Facilitating transformational change in our data management and reporting practices
  • Delivering our data governance, data systems and management practices
  • Ensuring our data approach delivers a continuous improvement loop and enables us to demonstrate our impact for children
  • Designing and improving processes and documentation to build the quality of our data across Australian Services

Does this sound like you?

You're an expert in analysing business needs and defining the case for change to enable data management capabilities and outcomes. You thrive in a fast paced, complex environment and work well to critical deadlines. Your empathy and highly developed interpersonal skills give you a flair for engaging differing stakeholders across diverse backgrounds as you act as the interface between our business and IT technical teams. You're able to convey complex concepts in a straightforward manner and build the capacity of others through the way you conduct your work.

This role requires:

  • A proven and applied understanding of data governance and data quality framework and procedures
  • Ability to work across a large and diverse portfolio of projects, with complex interdependencies and critical delivery time frames
  • Experience in the design and operation of databases that translate data to external donor systems and requirements, including documentation and data element mapping across systems
  • Delivery oriented approach with the ability to understand stakeholder needs and mature their data management capabilities
  • Expertise in diagnosing inefficiencies, determining root causes, and recommending solutions to complex challenges
  • A degree and experience in Business Management or related field

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. In addition to a connection to social causes, you will have access to:

  • Competitive salary plus fully salary packaging benefits
  • Friendly, agile and flexible work environment including working from home (WFH)
  • Additional annual leave options available
