About Results

Results International (Australia) is part of a global network of organisations working to bring an end to poverty. Results has been operating in Australia for 35 years through a combination of staff led and volunteer driven advocacy at a grassroots, national and global level.

We are highly respected for our policy and advocacy work and have a high profile within the Australian Federal Parliament and within the international development sector.

At the global level we work closely with our partner ACTION to improve equitable access to health and within Australia we act as the Secretariat to the Australian TB Caucus.

We work with parliamentarians, think tanks, civil society organisations, media and members of the community to influence political decisions that will bring an end to extreme poverty. This includes pushing for an increase in Australia’s overseas aid budget and increased pledges to multilateral bodies that work on global health and poverty alleviation.

Why Results?

  • Purposeful work - we tackle the big issues. We’re focused on building a world where everyone can go to school, eat nutritious food and live free from deadly diseases, and offer staff meaningful opportunities to make a real difference.
  • Autonomous & challenging - we’re a small but mighty team built on high trust and ambitious dreams. We punch above our weight because we empower staff and volunteers to lead.
  • Global partners - we work closely with some of the world’s most influential global aid and development organisations so you’ll have exposure to the best and brightest when it comes to effecting change.
  • Room to grow - we support you to flourish. While you'll have autonomy, you'll also receive training on the job, and the opportunity to try new things and learn from the best.
  • Flexible hours & location - our staff are highly committed, sometimes that means working out of hours to join a global call. We offer genuine flexibility and remote working.
  • Work life balance - we support everyone to have fulfilling lives outside of work. That's why we offer regular (paid) personal development days throughout the year and gift additional time off between Christmas and New Year.

About the role

Reporting to the CEO, the Global Health Coordinator is responsible for the implementation of Results’ strategy and deliverables through our global health partnership. You will manage a team of three people spanning community organising, policy and communications.

The role involves liaising with a wide range of stakeholders, from parliamentarians and bureaucrats, to corporate and other not for profit partners, as well as being a key point of contact with our international network.

This is a diverse and challenging role covering a range of organisational functions. Success in this role will be measured by the development of a high performing team, high impact campaigns and policy work, strong relationships with parliamentarians and a diversified and effective base of volunteers.

Working within the areas of global health, nutrition and pandemic response and preparedness, the successful candidate will need to navigate a complex international policy and financing system, so a background in global health and/or international development would be an advantage.

Key Responsibilities

  • Lead and oversee the advocacy and policy work of Results. This includes coordinating with local and global partners, providing advice to key decision-makers, overseeing monitoring and reporting on progress.
  • Play a lead role in Results government relations work, including cultivating and managing relationships with parliamentarians, bureaucrats and other political actors and stakeholders. This includes overseeing our role as the Secretariat of the parliamentary network, the Australian TB Caucus.

  • Oversee grassroots and community engagement initiatives to expand our base of Advocates and Fellows and deepen their engagement with Results and our mission.

We are looking for someone who is flexible and adaptable, able to lead and coordinate, and work in a hands-on capacity as required.
