Business Development Advisor - Flexible Location

Save The Children

Sell a 'product' you're passionate about! We're looking for a motivated, strategic and commercially astute Business Development Advisor toamplify our impact across Australia, through new strategic partnerships and sustainable funding opportunities.

Save the Children is no ordinary not-for-profit.

We're ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children's rights. We've been working in Australia for over 70 years, applying our global expertise to achieve lasting local impact and amplify children's voices for change. Our Australian services span early learning, school engagement, and youth justice through to family support and domestic violence, across every state and the Northern Territory.

Where you come in:

In this full-time, permanent role, you'll be responsible for delivering new growth and partnership opportunities for our Australian Services group. Based either at home or in any of our offices across the country, you'll be a key member of our national Strategy and Growth team - working alongside a talented bunch of motivated, supportive and no-drama professionals who work hard, have fun, get creative and are driven by making a positive impact for children in Australia.

You will make an impact by:

  • Analysing and advising on new opportunities
  • Developing and sustaining strategic partnerships for impact including mergers and acquisitions
  • Generating and assessing new business model concepts for viability, desirability and feasibility
  • Carrying out market analysis and government policy reviews to inform decisions
  • Developing and reviewing proposals and submissions to secure and extend funding

Does this sound like you?

You're solutions-oriented, persuasive, adept at crunching data and providing clear analysis and advice in tight deadlines, whether on a not for profit balance sheet or a government budget paper. You confidently engage with people from all walks of life, from the community to the boardroom. You'll roll your sleeves up anytime to help out a teammate and ensure a high-quality outcome, but you're also comfortable taking individual accountability for delivering end to end projects.

This role requires:

  • Track record of success in new business and partnership development in the Australian social services sector - specific experience in supporting and/or securing mergers and acquisitions is highly desirable
  • Experience in applying rigorous financial and risk frameworks to new business and partnership opportunities
  • Exceptional communication, negotiation and influencing skills
  • Strong understanding of policy and funding trends affecting the non-government sector
  • A bachelor level degree or higher in business administration, commerce, public policy/administration or equivalent

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. While working to change the story for children in Australia, you will have access to:

  • Agile work environment including working from home (WFH)
  • Full salary packaging benefits
  • Additional annual leave options available
  • Opportunity to work on additional projects alongside business as usual
  • Individual learning plans to assist in your career development
  • Internal employment and development opportunities
