Save the Children impacts the lives of children in Australia, the Pacific, and beyond on a daily basis. But we can’t do it alone; the engagement of our donors, supporters and retail customers is critical to our success.
We’re looking for a passionate Project Coordinator who is ready to join our energetic Supporter Engagement team. This is a great opportunity to learn or further develop project management and facilitation skills in an innovative environment.
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 in Australia and overseas and, if there’s a disaster – like an earthquake, drought or conflict – we are there on the ground.
Where you come in:
In this full-time permanent pos ition, based in Carlton, you’ll be a core contributor to the delivery of projects from within the Save the Children Australia’s Supporter Engagement portfolio, with a focus on fundraising and our retail network. You will have the opportunity to work on a variety of diverse and interesting projects – making this role a terrific opportunity for a keen coordinator or project manager ready to take the next step in their career.
You will make an impact by:

  • Gathering and consolidating background information and requirements using collaborative workshops or written briefs
  • Assisting with the investigation into solutions and opportunities, considering risks, benefits and business impacts
  • Working with team members to plan out project tasks and create a roadmap (timeline) for delivery
  • Driving and monitoring delivery in line with the agreed roadmap
  • Coordinating and facilitating project team meetings including planning sessions, stand ups and reviews
  • Acting as a facilitator for project team members, supporting productivity, prioritisation and iterative delivery

Does this sound like you?**
You’re an adaptable, highly organised all-rounder, with a high level of attention to detail and a can-do manner. You thrive in a team environment where you can facilitate collaboration and support people in achieving their goals. You’re a great problem solver, and you relish the opportunity to bring creative solutions and process improvements to the table.
This role requires:

  • Experience working as a Team Coordinator or Project Manager
  • Experience supporting the successful delivery of projects or initiatives
  • Strong skills in interpersonal communication, collaboration and facilitation
  • Demonstrated skills in planning, organising, and coordinating team members and resources
  • Exposure to and understanding of Agile project management principles

Working at Save the Children is more than just a job.**
It’s the feeling of knowing that your work is contributing to making the world a better place for children and working with others who feel the same. In addition to a connection to social causes, you will have access to:

  • Opportunity to work on additional projects alongside business as usual
  • Individual learning plans to assist in your career development
  • Internal employment and development opportunities
  • Friendly and flexible work environment
