Project and Award Coordinator - Flexible location

Save The Children

Save the Children's global presence is huge and growing. We want to enhance our reputation to deliver high-quality programs to support the most vulnerable children in the Pacific and internationally. We will do this by working with our global colleagues and offices to ensure our programs are consistent, effective and achieve positive enduring impacts for children and their communities. We need you to join our Project and Awards team to coordinate international and Pacific awards and grants, working with Country Offices and implementing partners to provide programs that meet our high standards.

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 to live a life free from violence. We run programs around the world and, if there's a disaster such as an earthquake, drought or conflict, we are there on the ground.

Where you come in:

We currently have two full-time permanent positions available, which can be based in any location within the Australia/Pacific time zone. In this role, you will support our Pacific and/or international programs by ensuring donor and award/grant information is captured and monitored. You will coordinate reporting to donors, ensure compliance requirements are met, and support Country Offices around the world. You will be part of our International Programs Department and report to our Senior Project and Award Manager.

You will make an impact by:

  • Ensuring the data in our Award Management System (AMS) is accurate and up to date
  • Supporting teams at all levels to understand and comply with donor requirements
  • Liaising effectively with Country Offices, Support Services Teams, and other key stakeholders
  • Analysing and reporting on performance, including working with auditors as needed
  • Monitoring and analysing project budgets and forecasts and supporting budget development
  • Supporting emergency responses and preparedness in the Pacific as required

Does this sound like you?

You are technologically savvy with analytical instincts and organisational skills that are second to none. Your exceptional communication skills make it easy for you to connect and work with a diverse range of people. You can plan, manage, and coordinate your work to meet a variety of tasks and responsibilities. You thrive on a challenge and deal effectively with change. You are committed to the mission and values of Save the Children.

This role requires:

  • A track record of experience with project and financial management of grant-funded programs
  • An ability to identify and manage organisational and operational risks
  • Highly developed organisational, time management, and communication skills
  • Excellent interpersonal skills and cultural awareness
  • High level of computer literacy, particularly Microsoft suite of programs and databases
  • Experience working with AMS and/or in the international sector is desirable

Working at Save the Children is more than just a job.

It's the feeling of knowing that your work is contributing to make 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:

  • A friendly and flexible work environment, including working from your preferred location
  • Child and pet friendly work environment
  • Full salary packaging benefits up to $15,900
  • Additional annual leave options available
  • Individual learning plans to assist your career development
