The Organisation
Caritas Australia supports long-term development programs in impoverished communities in Africa, Asia, Indigenous Australia and the Pacific, helping oppressed people to rediscover their dignity by taking greater control over their lives and overcoming poverty.

Specifically you will:
  • Use donor data and segmentation to make evidence-based recommendations and strategies
  • Build rapport with internal and external stakeholders in complex environments
  • Inspire your donors, staff, colleagues and directors
  • Build organisational confidence through the demonstration of fundraising success
  • Be commercially savvy including well-developed budgeting and reporting skills
