Community Fundraiser - Community Relations - Orange

Cancer Council NSW
  • This is a community relationship role with the goal to assist the local community to raise funds for Cancer Council NSWs research, prevention, support services and to build the profile to become the local charity of choice

Cancer Council NSW (CCNSW) is a 94% community funded, community focused not for profit. Our unique combination of local program delivery, community engagement and national influence enables everyone who cares about cancer to make the biggest possible difference.

Summarise the role!

Fundraising for cancer research and information and support is still needed - It's the how that changes. With COVID changing the way we run fundraising events, this role will value your innovative way of thinking and your strategic approach to raising revenue!

Based in Orange, reporting to the Community Lead, you will work closely with our large team of committed volunteers and local supporters ensuring that CCNSW is able to connect with, and understand, the distinct needs of the communities in which we work.

You will build relationships and provide support to a portfolio of key fundraisers, to assist them to build their community fundraising events such as (but not limited to):

  • Do It For Cancer (DIFC) and Pink events; This is where people set up their own fundraising event (big or small) and with the support of this role, are assisted through fundraising strategy initiatives; marketing support; right through to moral support to keep them engaged and motivated
  • Longest Day - Supporting fundraisers who take up the challenge to successfully complete four rounds of golf from dawn to dusk and raise funds for Cancer Council’s research, prevention, and support services.
  • Relay for Life events within Orange and the local communities, ensuring targets are met and the profile of CCNSW lifted.


After 6 years in the position, and with CCNSW opening roles that had been historically Sydney based, to be regionally based, the current incumbent has moved into a new opportunity with CCNSW. This now opens up a new opportunity for you to join the CCSNW team.

This is so much more than a fundraising role and will allow you the opportunity to work independently to meet targets and raise our brand profile. Expectations are high, but the purpose of the role, and the knowledge of doing something with a purpose, will reward you every day.

This role will need your innovative way of thinking; your ability to adapt and tailor your approach to raising revenue; underpinned by your passion for the cause of Cancer Council NSW.

You will:

  • Plan, develop and coordinate all aspects of community events, including working across multiple committees
  • Identify and realise opportunities for the community to contribute to our organisation mission through local fundraising initiatives.
  • Partner closely with the wider team to ensure integration of cancer prevention, information and supportive care as part of all fundraising programs and events
  • Raise the profile of CCNSW as the local cancer charity and maintain high levels of brand and service recognition
  • Develop and maintain strong relationships with CCNSW staff; volunteers working within the regional and central offices; and local communities
  • Effectively motivate, coach and influence committees and volunteers to assist in the delivery of event objectives

What skills are we looking for?

This is a relationship role with a collaborative approach - Collaboration with your community, your teammates, our volunteers and the wider CCNSW team. This role will also draw on your expertise in:

  • Fundraising; account mgmt or event management skills/qualifications with a blend of Marketing
  • Ability to pick up the phone and reach out to supporters as well as provide some technical support/understanding in this new era with online fundraising events
  • Exceptional relationship and stakeholder engagement skills
  • An ability to adapt and tailor your approach
  • Project Management e,g Planning, development and coordination
  • Enjoyment and drive to achieve and exceed financial targets
  • Strategic approach and ability to think innovatively

This is not your average job, so it's not average hours! Because of the nature of working with the community, flexibility to work some evenings and some weekends will be required, with peak times of year sometimes resulting in evening committee meetings plus attending events on weekends. With Orange and surrounding communities the majority of this roles portfolio, this will mean, on average, one day a week will be visiting communities and, overnight travel one night every few months.

Frequent travel to the communities you support will be required. You will be covering different geographical areas so you will need your C Class Driver's license. Access to a pool vehicle is available.

**Please note internally these roles are called Community Relations Coordinator
