Job Description

Do you love talking to people and building strong relationships? Are you passionate about supporting people living on the margins?

Rough Edges is a faith based, non-government organisation that aims to bring a greater sense of self to everyone who walks through our doors. It is a place where community happens for people experiencing homelessness and marginalisation. We're a small team of passionate individuals.

We are looking for a fundraiser with generalist skills who loves to inspire others and who isn't afraid to ask for funding support.

Someone who can :

  • Identify potential groups to build relationships with and have them nominate us as their charity partner.
  • Coordinate and manage partner fundraising activities.
  • Proactively identify and apply for suitable grants through funders that align with our values.
  • Promote our social justice education program.
  • Work with the community to increase awareness and understanding of the issues faced by marginalised urban communities.
  • Happily work in a sometimes chaotic environment.
  • Appreciate the benefits of laughter when things don't go to plan.
  • Contribute to the christian ethos and mission of our organisation Through leading others in prayer and writing prayer newsletters to members and supporters.

This is a part-time role (3 days a week) and is designed to complement the skills we currently hold.

While previous fundraising experience isn't essential, having a sense of why we do what we do is. What is important is being resourceful, compassionate, and inspired by this work.

If you like the sound of the role and are eager to apply, please submit:

  • A short form resume - tell us about your values and explain what gets you out of bed in the morning
  • A simple cover note that outlines why you would like to work in this space

If you would prefer to have a quick chat to discuss whether this role and our organisation could be for you, please call Jen Webster on 0416 499 521.
