Director, Fundraising

Location. Brisbane or Sydney

Salary. Competitive Salary and Benefits

Closing Date. Friday 1st June

The Great Barrier Reef Foundation welcomes the announcement of the biggest single investment in a coral reef ecosystem anywhere in the world - a $444m partnership with the Australian Government to build the resilience of our most precious natural wonder, the Reef.

The next five years are decisive for the Great Barrier Reef Foundation (GBRF).  The circumstances that surround the organisation both internally and externally mean the GBRF is poised to undergo a significant uplift. The entire team is united in its desire for GBRF to rise to this occasion and be the change agent to not only stem the decline of the Great Barrier Reef but to unite funders, businesses and the community in the Reef’s pathway to recovery. For this it must be leaders in everything it does, in the projects it enables, in the way it raises money and in how it uses its voice.

With the loss of almost half of the coral cover across the Reef in the past two years, the GBRF has revitalised its vision and refreshed its sense of purpose. This is a moment of truth to signal and demonstrate to everyone that there is hope for the future of the Reef and unite communities in the journey to achieve it.

The Director, Fundraising will be the architect and engine behind a bold, global fundraising campaign to save the Great Barrier Reef. 

You will be responsible for developing and executing a holistic, integrated fundraising strategy to increase income to the Foundation from a range of philanthropic and donor sources, ensuring the strategy is integrated and aligned with the GBRF’s Strategic Plan.

A high-performing fundraising professional or an individual with similar high level business development experience, your excellent interpersonal, verbal and written communication skills and demonstrated experience building effective working relationships will ensure your success in this role.
