Are you a dynamic self-starter, able to build new initiatives with positivity and an entrepreneurial mindset? Are you passionate about responding to God’s call to care for the vulnerable and developing Christian partnerships in Australia and overseas?
If so, this could be the right job for you!
For over 75 years, WorldShare has existed to transform lives and restore hope around the world, by connecting Australians with people in need overseas, so that together, we love like Jesus.
We are a Christian aid and development organisation which takes God’s mission seriously in loving and helping those in need, particularly the most vulnerable and marginalized. We love and empower the outcast and forgotten through education and training, so they can have hope for the future.
We work through local Christian partnerships overseas to bring lasting change to communities; particularly to vulnerable children, disempowered women and those excluded from their communities.
In the past year WorldShare conducted a strategic review and as a result, in 2020 WorldShare will be implementing a new connections strategy to address contextual developments and take advantages of opportunities in the Australian environment. This strategy is an evolution of WorldShare’s conventional business model and will allow WorldShare to use its strengths and unique attributes to expand its impact and continue to carry out its vision of connecting people to transform lives into the future.
Through this innovation in our partnership model, WorldShare Connect, we will connect with Australian churches and NGOs and provide tailored support for Christian ministries overseas and their engagement with integral mission. Worldshare will come alongside Christian communities in Australia, leveraging its systems and skills to provide services in supporter engagement, overseas partnership management and compliance, and operations.
The Manager, WorldShare Connect will be responsible for leading the development of this
new initiative, developing relationships with Australian partner organisations, and managing projects and partnerships with overseas partner organisations.
Although you will work closely with the CEO, this position is expected to exercise a high degree of autonomy and take on significant responsibility. An ideal candidate will have broad interests and knowledge in nonprofit operations management.
You are passionate about the role and mission of Christian aid and development and in caring for the vulnerable around the world.
You relish the opportunity to build a new initiative 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.
Your prior experience in partnership or account management and in implementing business development strategies, as well as your own drive to meet targets and succeed, will assist you to excel in this role.
You are able to engage in strong and strategic partnerships, and thrive in developing connections. You work well with people, having strong stakeholder management skills and being able to negotiate and achieve consensus. You are truly collaborative, able to work flexibly and develop positive partnerships which bring out respective strengths of all partners.
Your experience in international aid and development will help you to not only manage the international partnerships and ensure good practice and Australian government compliance, but also to share your knowledge and expertise with Australian supporting organisations.
If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you!
