  • Play a critical role in transforming lives around the world
  • Full time permanent role, based in Chatswood NSW (with hybrid WFH)

Are you a dynamic leader, passionate about inspiring Australians to partner in God’s call to transform lives and restore hope around the world? Are you a strategic and driven relationship builder, fundraiser and communicator? Do you thrive in building teams and making impact?

If so, this could be the job for you!

The Opportunity

We pursue our mission by connecting Australians with the work of our overseas ministry partners, so that they can provide financial support, volunteer their time and pray for the ministries.

In this leadership role, you will be responsible for managing the experience of our fantastic supporters as they partner with WorldShare. Driving acquisition and retention, you will lead the Supporter Engagement team to inspire individuals and churches to financially support our overseas ministry partners. You will work collaboratively with the team to implement and track engagement activities and communications.

You will strategically manage our various programs, such as sponsorship, major gifts, bequest, volunteer and events, integrating WorldShare supporter engagement, fundraising, marketing and communication initiatives.

You will help identify and build relationships with significant stakeholders and drive partnership development of our innovative new business model, WorldShare Connect.

You will have the opportunity to build upon effective systems and processes recently implemented, through which we’ve seen great improvements in our supporter engagement and financial growth. It’s a great starting point for you to be able to take the team even further and make a strategic impact.

When you join WorldShare, you will lead a motivated and ambitious team, and play a critical role in transforming lives of vulnerable people overseas.

About Worldshare

WorldShare is a Christian aid and development organisation passionate about showing and sharing the love of Jesus. Our purpose is to see lives transformed and hope restored across the world through education, health and sharing the Gospel.

We work in Africa and Asia and our approach is partnership-driven. We come alongside locally-run Christian organisations that are creating life-changing opportunities for the world’s most vulnerable and marginalised people. We listen rather than lead, providing resources, expertise, and prayer support to help bring their God-given vision for their community to life.

Our goal is to combine best-practice aid and development with passionate Christian faith so that Christian organisations around the world are effective, resilient, and can bring about lasting change for their communities.

Does this sound like you?

  • You are passionate about the role and mission of Christian aid and development and in caring for the vulnerable around the world.
  • Your experience in fundraising, sales, and/or marketing roles will help you thrive in this role, as you are supporter-focused and results-oriented.
  • You are a people-person, able to engage in strong and strategic partnerships, and thrive in developing connections and managing stakeholders.
  • You relish the opportunity to lead and work with a high degree of autonomy and ownership. You love being able to think strategically, but also to operationalise concepts through developing efficient systems and processes.
