We focus primarily on international aid and development - on protecting and helping those who are marginalised, mistreated and oppressed in developing countries.

Operating since 1943, WorldShare is an established organisation and is currently going through an exciting period of change and evolution and this has seen new structure, systems and processes introduced. This next phase presents an opportunity to build on the foundations which have been developed, and your experience in the sector and in particular in fundraising and marketing will be highly valued.   You enjoy and look forward to occasionally having to rolling up your sleeves to get the work done.

Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Chief Executive Officer will give sound leadership and direction towards the achievement of the organisation’s mission, strategy and objectives.  The CEO will oversee a team of eight in Sydney and will be responsible for building on the newly-created solid foundations to sustainably grow and develop the organisation. You will raise the reputation and profile of WorldShare among supporters and with the Christian faith and NFP sectors and be accountable for all aspects of operational management. 

About you

We are looking for a strong leader with a proven track record of success in senior leadership roles where you have built, led and nurtured highly effective and co-operative teams.  You will have the ability to inspire, influence and coach the newly built team. You will possess integrity, excellent leadership skills, be highly organized, have sound business and financial acumen, be tertiary qualified and have the ability to engage people in the work of WorldShare.

You will be passionate about the vision and mission, driven to lead an organisation effectively and efficiently in order for hope and life to be restored for the most marginalised around the world, in the name of Jesus.

This is one of those great opportunities for someone who is looking to make a difference in their work. While being an interim role, you will be empowered to continue to drive the organisation forward. You will play a critical role in the development and future of WorldShare.

Jodie's Story

I began my association with Worldshare in 2013 when I went on an English teaching pilot mission to UKRIM in Yogyakarta with a wonderful group of volunteers. I chose this mission as I have some background in both Indonesian and teaching and also because my sister Lisa was going, but mostly because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of people less fortunate than myself.

It was such an amazing, life altering experience and a privilege to be part of. I have now taken the opportunity to help develop the teaching curriculum for UKRIM camps and lead camps in recent years.
