Job Description

  • Work for an inspirational organisation with a strong purpose

  • Opportunity to develop high value philanthropic partnerships from Individuals, Corporates & Foundations across Northern NSW

  • Be rewarded by seeing your work make a difference every day

About the company

Ronald McDonald House Charities, Northern NSW helps keep families of seriously ill or injured children together and close to the care their child needs. Each year they help thousands of families from across the northern NSW region by providing a home away from home so families can stay together. The highly respected and trusted charity is dedicated to making every day a bit brighter for those in need and relies on the generosity of the local community to operate.

About the role

Join us in a role where you can make a significant impact in a dynamic, supportive, and forward-thinking Fundraising and Marketing team. You will be responsible for developing and implementing strategic initiatives that drive substantial growth from a portfolio of new and existing philanthropic partnerships. Engaging and inspiring Individuals, Corporates, Trusts and Foundations and  stakeholders with bespoke engagement pathways will be at the heart of your work. You will collaborate with a dedicated team while also having the autonomy to lead and innovate. This is a unique opportunity to apply your skills in securing major gifts and building lasting relationships to support our mission and drive our organisation forward.

About you

Are you a positive, proactive individual with a can-do attitude? We are looking for someone who is a strategic thinker—both creative and innovative, always driving for results. You should have proven experience in philanthropy, fundraising, or partnership development within the non-profit sector. A demonstrated track record of soliciting and securing significant major gifts (over $50K) from individuals, corporate partnerships, and foundations is essential. Your exceptional networking and relationship-building skills will enable you to engage and inspire new and existing donors, partners, and stakeholders effectively. Additionally, excellent communication and presentation skills are a must, and while you will thrive in a collaborative team environment, your ability to work autonomously is equally important.


Work for an organisation that puts people at the centre of all they do, be part of a team that are passionate about what they do and have fun whilst doing it.
