Save The Children

We offer our customers more than just retail therapy! Save the Children op shops offer a unique shopping experience and the chance to support the numerous projects that help to create better lives for children in Australia and overseas. We need you to support our shop network in New South Wales that is run by volunteers. This is a pivotal role in ensuring the success of our existing and future network of shops.

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 live a life free from violence. We run programs overseas and across Australia, where we have been creating better lives for children in New South Wales since we opened our first pre-school in 1962. See here for more information on our work across New South Wales and Australia.

In this full-time permanent position, based in Sydney, you'll work with our passionate volunteers to ensure that the stores in the NSW network are running efficiently and effectively delivering the required results for Save the Children.
