  • Inspire supporters and the public to do more, give more and stay longer in the fight for global justice
  • Permanent, full-time position

This role is a crucial position in the fast growing events team – working on our multi-award winning Ration Challenge, and developing other peer to peer and community fundraising initiatives. You’ll be building on the amazing results achieved so far, and inspiring the Australian public to do more, give more and stay longer in the fight against injustice.

The primary focus of this event is the Ration Challenge, one of Australia’s leading peer to peer fundraising events. It challenges people to eat the exact same rations as a refugee for one week, get sponsored, and raise money and awareness for communities affected by conflict and disaster around the world. Since it first started in Australia in 2014 with 100 participants, it has inspired more than 80,000 people around the world to take part and raised over $14 million. We took the challenge to New Zealand in 2018, and last year launched the challenge, in partnership with likeminded organisations, in the UK and US. The Ration Challenge has won 7 Fundraising Institute of Australia Awards for Excellence, including Best Event and Most Innovative Fundraising Campaign.

In this role you’ll build on the great results achieved so far. You’ll help coordinate the delivery of the challenge in Australia as well as with our global partners in the UK and the USA. You’ll be supported to use your skills and creativity to develop marketing collateral, PR, media and digital campaigns, and build strategic external partnerships that will grow the Ration Challenge - inspiring thousands of people to raise millions of dollars each year for refugees around the world.

As well as the Ration Challenge, this role will be influential in building Act for Peace’s other community fundraising campaigns, and helping to innovate and ideate new opportunities for community fundraising initiatives.

You’ll be working alongside a motivated and experienced team – and you’ll be putting your passion for global justice into action and make a difference where it’s needed most in the world.

This is a full-time permanent position based in our Sydney CBD office. The salary will be negotiated depending upon the skills and experience of the successful candidate.

Marketing Coordinator - Schools & Orgs

  • Act for Peace is a dynamic humanitarian aid and development agency
  • Inspire the next generation of global citizens
  • Work with teachers and schools on the award-winning Ration Challenge
  • Permanent, full-time position
  • Salary packaging and flexible-working arrangements available
  • Location: Sydney CBD

This role is a crucial position in the newly formed Events team – working on our multi-award winning Ration Challenge; building on the amazing results achieved so far through the Ration Challenge schools program; and developing new campaigns to reach both school and corporate audiences.

The Ration Challenge is one of Australia’s leading peer to peer fundraising events. It challenges people to eat the exact same rations as a refugee for one week, get sponsored, and raise money and awareness for communities affected by conflict and disaster around the world. Since it first started in Australia in 2014 with 100 participants, it has inspired more than 80,000 people around the world to take part and raised over $14 million dollars.

In 2018 the Ration Challenge Schools program was launched, and it has inspired hundreds of schools and thousands of students to take part. By putting themselves in the shoes of a refugee for five days, students develop empathy, critical thinking and leadership skills; and by making a very real difference to refugees, learn they have the power to change the world for the better.

In this role you’ll be responsible for growing participation from Australian schools and looking for corporate opportunities too. You’ll be supported to use your skills and creativity to further develop our proposition for schools, map out supporter journeys, write marketing collateral, lead PR, media and digital campaigns, and build strategic external partnerships that will grow the Ration Challenge amongst schools - inspiring the next generation of global citizens.

You’ll also play an instrumental role in building Act for Peace’s other community fundraising initiatives, helping to innovate and ideate new opportunities for community fundraising and inspiring Australian students, teachers and businesses to do more, give more and stay longer in the fight against injustice.

Like all children, Alina has dreams for her future. Sadly, most children in rural Pakistan can’t get the education they need to realise their dreams and escape poverty.

Seven years on and Syrian refugees are still in urgent need of our help. Keep hope alive and help provide the food, medical care and support they need.

Together we raised over $3 million during Ration Challenge 2018 - enough to feed more than 10,000 refugees for a year!
