PHILANTHROPY & BEQUESTS COORDINATOR – Gold Coast
Develop your fundraising career by stepping onto this amazing & pivotal learning ground at an iconic & sophisticated Foundation.
- Ideally, bring experience as a coordinator in a fundraising office.
- Enthusiastic hands-on, can-do + customer service in are important in this role.
- Based northern Gold Coast. Full time.
This time-proven business is (almost) all-systems go to enter an exciting new phase of growth. But there are still a few important gaps to be filled before its Foundation is fully staffed. And one of those pivotal support roles is this one.
It’s here (in your hands?) that all of the activity of the Philanthropy and Fundraising team is brought together into the cohesive resource that helps support the core business of emergency care and medical retrieval in Queensland.
It’s a great get-in-and-get-it-done job
For an enthusiastic, pro-active, emotionally mature co-ordinator who’s thrives on this type of work and is keen to learn, grow and develop in fundraising, this is a rare opportunity to learn from the best.
To be considered for this rare opportunity, you’ll need to have had at least a couple of years in a fundraising team or office where you’ve been involved in putting together fundraising campaigns and (ideally) delivering campaign analysis and reporting.
A natural born organiser, you love order and systems and your pragmatic plans always have a safe fallback in-built. You also take great pride in your ability to ensure that all ‘i’s are appropriately dotted and the ‘t’s’ are crossed. But, in spite of this systematic, fine-detail approach, you’re by no means rigid. In fact, your colleagues would probably describe you as a flexible, friendly team player who’s always willing to pitch in and help without needing to be asked.
By now, it’s expected you will have developed some pretty special expertise in writing grants and other forms of the written ‘Ask’ – and hopefully can show us a record of returns that attest to that. If you haven’t had the opportunity to master that yet, your skills across other types of proposals and presentations will provide a great platform from which to build this capacity. Needless to say, your computer capabilities in CRM database and Microsoft Office should be wide and well advanced.
A cheerful ‘people person’ who is happy to take phone calls and enter conversations with donors (you are not involved in actually asking for funds), you’re equally willing to help with events. This support could mean getting the invites out, processing responses and donations and making absolutely sure that everyone who needs to be thanked has been – and beautifully.
If you can bring all (or most) of the above and genuinely care about helping make life easier for the executives whose work brings sorely needed funds to support lifesaving medical retrievals, please apply today.
