Are you passionate about shaping the future of Australia through impactful policy reform and community engagement? Join us on our journey to build a better Australia.

We are a dynamic startup committed to revolutionising how the community is involved in politics and policy-making. We are a non-partisan organisation on a mission to inform, inspire community engagement, and drive faster and better reform to address Australia’s most critical challenges.

We are seeking a new Director of Philanthropy and Partnerships to join our growing team, who will play a pivotal role in driving our organisation’s financial sustainability and growth. Our Director of Philanthropy and Partnerships will work with our Board and Leadership team to define and execute our fundraising strategy. The initial focus will be on corporates and high net worth individuals, broadening out to community and others streams as our organisation matures.

This is an incredibly rewarding opportunity to be part of the foundational stages of a small organisation set to make a big impact. We are seeking interest from candidates with significant experience in philanthropy program management and strategic leadership, with a track record of securing major gifts from a variety of income sources which will have been gained in a nonprofit environment.

In return, you will have the opportunity to learn every day from the best in the business – we have an impressive lineup of people joining us on our mission. Our small startup nature means everyone is exposed to interesting, meaningful, and collaborative work – all voices can be heard. This is a genuine opportunity to make a significant impact.
