Partnerships Manager - Emergency Health Unit

Save The Children

Save the Children is one of the leading humanitarian actors in Australia and around the world. The Partnerships Manager for the Emergency Health Unit (EHU) plays a key role in us ensuring we save lives and leave no child behind. You will be part of a globally networked and diverse team of humanitarians responding to disasters in Asia, the Pacific and beyond. Contribute your capability in business development and relationship management to support health needs during chronic and sudden onset emergencies across the world.

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.

Where you come in:

In this part-time (0.6 FTE), fixed term (12 months) role based in our Carlton head office, you will work across the organisation to build the profile of the EHU and mobilise resources to further its work. You will work with the Humanitarian Director to build a roster of Australian health care professionals who we can deploy at short notice to crises around the world and build partnerships with Australians and Australian organisations to support the EHU.

You will make an impact by:

  • Building relationships and mobilising resources from institutional donors, philanthropists, foundations, corporates and other partners
  • Identifying business development opportunities and bringing them to fruition
  • Promoting the importance of the EHU's work with health unions, the health sector and government
  • Working closely with the Public Affairs and Policy Department to develop and deliver key messages for the media
  • Working with the Head of the Global Surge Deployment Team and UK Emergency Response Programme Manager to integrate the partner's staff into the Surge Deployment Platform

If we could compose the perfect you…

...You love building relationships, raising funds and have a passion for public health. You're highly flexible, enjoy working in difficult circumstances, with an ability to manage a varied and unpredictable workload. You're comfortable in a corporate environment and enjoy working within a team and independently. You are an outstanding partnership manager who can spot an opportunity a kilometre away and who thrives on sealing the deal.

This role requires:

  • Significant and demonstrated experience in relationship-based fundraising and business development
  • Ability to analyse strategic trends and develop appropriate plans and responses
  • Proven experience in developing funding proposals and attracting funding
  • Ability to nurture relationships and keep partners engaged, informed of new developments, and enthused about partnering with the EHU
  • Bachelor's degree in a relevant field

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. In addition to a connection to social causes, you will have access to:

  • Opportunity to work on additional projects alongside business as usual
  • Individual learning plans to assist in your career development
  • Internal deployment and development opportunities
  • Child and pet friendly work environment
  • Full salary packaging benefits
  • Additional annual leave options available
