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 an exceptional Grants & Fundraising Coordinator to join the team. You will work within the Marketing, Fundraising and Partnerships team to identify and respond to funding opportunities for Orange Sky Australia and New Zealand.

  • Work with internal stakeholders to identify organisational funding needs and implement strategies to achieve priorities 
  • Manage the grants application, reporting and acquittal process for existing and new relationships across Government, PAFs, PuAFs and other grant makers 
  • Maintain detailed records of all grant and funding activity as well as maintain relevant information of constituents in Orange Sky’s CRM 
  • Identify scalable/repeatable solutions for proactive and reactive fundraising opportunities  

Convinced this is the role for you? Tick some boxes!
