20 hours per week, 12 months parental leave cover
Oxfam is a global movement of people working together for a future without poverty. We give a hand up, not a hand out – to create positive change that lasts.
Oxfam works in three ways: we respond to emergencies, saving lives and helping survivors recover; we provide people with the skills and resources to lift themselves out of poverty; and we campaign to change the unjust policies that keep people in poverty.
To raise the funds necessary for this important work, we rely on the skills of a talented marketing and fundraising team.
We currently have a vacancy in our Relationships Fundraising team. You will be providing parental leave cover in the key role of Major Donor Fundraiser and will be expected to hit the ground running. Key responsibilities include maintaining relationships with high net worth individual donors, attracting multi-year funding through a range of mid level major giving products and by providing an outstanding supporter experience to new and existing major donors.
The role will suit candidates with a strong results and client orientation, excellent communication, influencing and relationship management skills, relevant major giving or relationship fundraising experience, as well as proven analytical and time management skills. A good knowledge of Microsoft applications, international development issues and a demonstrated commitment to Oxfam’s values and mission are equally important.
This is a fixed term post working 20 hours per week, commencing in late August 2013 for a period of 1 year. We are able to offer a starting salary of $58,000 per annum pro rata (and potentially more depending on the skills and experience of the successful candidate). We also offer inspiring work colleagues, a friendly work environment and the opportunity to gain valuable experience in major giving fundraising with a reputable INGO.
