The Organisation

The Nationals have a proud record in representing interests across regional NSW. With over 150 branches across the state, their passion is to ensure a fair deal for all regional communities.

As the largest political party across regional NSW, The Nationals believe in openness, fair play and the decentralisation of power to our local areas. They are not a party of big business, or of the trade unions. They are a party of ordinary people working hard for their communities.

  • Managing the large scale annual general conference, plus smaller regional events
  • Generate a new portfolio of supporters, individuals and corporate sponsors
  • Be involved with both state and federal campaign funding


Skills Required

You will have a good understanding of NSW and Federal systems of government and be able to engage at a senior level. You will be confident around event management, building relationships face to face and have a strategic approach. You will have a track record in generating significant funds via new donors.

Your experience will also include:

  • Developing effective soliciting and stewarding tools, mapping the donor journey
