Save the Children is no ordinary not-for-profit.
We're ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children's rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We run programs in Australia and overseas and, if there's a disaster - like an earthquake, drought or conflict - we are there on the ground.

In this maximum-term (11 month) part-time position (4 days / 30.4 hours a week) based in East Melbourne, you will support the growth of our South East & East Asia programs. You will provide strategic analysis, program management and operational support across a number of projects. You will be part of our International Programs team and report to our Regional Portfolio Manager for South East and East Asia.
You will make an impact by:
- Fulfilling the role of Project Lead on all assigned projects.
- Managing the targets and outcomes of our South East & East Asia programs.
- Ensuring that all projects are effectively designed, budgeted, implemented and monitored.
- Seeking continuous development of the South East & East Asia program portfolio.
- Building and maintaining strong relationships with donors and stakeholders within Australia and the country teams.
We want you to be successful.
Therefore, as a minimum, you'll need:
- Exceptional project management skills and experience.
- Tertiary qualification/s in relevant and related discipline.
- Strong financial understanding.
- Highly developed verbal and written communication skills (inc. report writing).
- International experience and evidence of understanding INGOs and Australian Government Aid would be highly desirable.
Working at Save the Children is more than just a job.
It's the feeling of knowing that your work is contributing to making the world a better place for children and working with others who feel the same. We offer a competitive salary including generous salary packaging benefits, a friendly and flexible work environment, and great career opportunities - both locally and internationally.
