About Orange Sky

Orange Sky is a not-for-profit organisation providing a free mobile laundry and shower service to people experiencing homelessness. We offer a platform for everyday Australians and New Zealanders to connect by creating a safe, positive and supportive environment for people who are too often ignored or who feel disconnected from the community.

We currently operate 36 services across 25 locations in Australia, and three services across two locations in New Zealand. There are 116,000 Australians and 41,600 Kiwis experiencing homelessness, and we’re on a mission to positively connect these communities through clean clothes, warm showers, and genuine, non-judgemental conversation.  We’re driven, dedicated, insanely ambitious and a little unconventional. We take our work seriously, but have plenty of fun along the way. We work hard and ‘get it done’, but always make time to celebrate each other’s success.

The Role

To support our continued growth, we are looking for a Fundraising Support Officer to join the team. You will work within the Marketing, Fundraising and Partnerships team assisting with administrative support, campaign and fundraising planning, execution and analysis.
