About Orange Sky
Orange Sky Australia (OS) is a not-for-profit organisation focused on the provision of free laundry and showers to people experiencing homelessness. We're growing, and fast. Since 2014, we've expanded our reach to every capital city in Australia and most recently, we have established Orange Sky New Zealand. Next steps include further growth in New Zealand, urban and remote Australia, and potentially elsewhere across the globe.
We take our work seriously, but not ourselves. We work hard and ‘get it done’, but always make time to celebrate each other’s success.
This isn’t your regular 9-5-desk-job.
As the Major Giving Support Officer, your role is to assist the Donor Impact Manager with effective time management. We need someone who understands how to provide high level admin support, but also how to get creative to make things happen…having your eye on the ball and keeping things running on-track is key, and the cost of any misfires in high.
So, here’s the role in a nutshell…:
Schedules at Orange Sky can get a little crazy, and there’s always a lot to do and not a lot of time to do it. You’ll keep calendars in order when sometimes the time slots move so fast, it feels more like a video game than a calendar. We need someone to make sure it all works, and that optimism isn’t mistaken for impossible.
There are a LOT of moving parts at Orange Sky. Our fundraising team are responsible for managing the relationships with our amazing donors and supporters to enable us to continue supporting our Friends on the street – this role is key in supporting donor appreciation initiatives, researching potential fundraising opportunities, analysing and directing enquiries and requests, and supporting meetings, events and presentations to maximise the Donor Impact Manager’s time and efficiency.
With all jokes aside, this is an important job. It’s almost impossible to detail everything this role includes, but we can say the perfect person will bring a mature, calm, resilient and go-getting attitude to this brand new role.
No two days are ever the same, life at Orange Sky is fast paced and exciting, and you can always count on the support of an amazing team.
Convinced this is the role for you? Tick some boxes!
Professional. Orange Sky is a fun place, but also a serious business with lots of moving parts. You know how to have lots of balls in the air that can’t be dropped and think on the fly. Being super organised is your thing. Communicating with lots of different personalities and building great relationships comes naturally to you. You’re self-disciplined, have inhuman attention to detail, and can turn your hand to a variety of tasks to just get things done. You’ve been an executive assistant or similar for 5+ years in a fast-paced environment, ideally in the not-for-profit sector.
Tech-savvy. We’ve built some amazing tech systems – you’ll be no stranger to internet based applications, CRM databases and project management software.
Unflappable. Crazy things happen. You should be able to pause and laugh at them for a second before quickly taking action to make problems disappear seamlessly. Last-minute changes and random curveballs don’t bother you. Juggling tasks and balancing competing priorities is your superpower. You’re cool, collected and well…unflappable.
Believe in what we do. To be successful at Orange Sky, you need a genuine passion for our cause. We’re proud of our achievements in just five years. We want likeminded, compassionate intrinsically motivated people who’re keen to jump on board, hit the ground running and become part of the Orange Sky community.
