Community Relations Coordinator

Cancer Council NSW
  • With COVID changing the way we fundraise, now more than ever this role will need your innovative way of thinking and your strategic approach to raising revenue, all underpinned by your passion for the cause of Cancer Council NSW
  • Covering Metro Sydney Region - 12mth Maternity Leave Contract

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 fundraise, this role will value your innovative way of thinking and your strategic approach to raising revenue. You will need to deliver on ideas, in a non-traditional way, to help people make money for CCNSW!

Primarily based in our Woolloomooloo office, with a mixture of working from home for COVID safety, you will support key CCNSW community fundraising campaigns & events, within Metro Sydney region, such as:

  • Do It For Cancer (DIFC) = 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
  • Australia's Biggest Morning Tea (ABMT) = Using our nationally recognised fundraising event at a local level, individuals or teams, with the support of this role, are assisted through fundraising strategy initiatives; marketing support; and ensuring that moral is supported to keep them engaged and motivated


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.

You will:

  • Identify and realise opportunities, including through data analysis and insights, for the community to contribute to our organisation through local fundraising initiatives such as DIFC and ABMT
  • 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

What skills are we looking for?

As this is a 12mth cover, we need someone who can just come in and get it done. This role will draw on your expertise in:

  • Fundraising or stakeholder management skills/qualifications with a blend of Marketing & data analysis
  • 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
  • Project Management e,g Planning, development and coordination
  • Enjoyment and drive to achieve and exceed financial targets
  • Strategic approach and ability to think innovatively
  • Commercial awareness
  • Prior NFP experience with fundraising campaigns will be looked on favourably

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.
