  • Transformational leadership role
  • Fundraising, Marketing & Communications
  • Exciting career opportunity with high profile NFP

 

 

Take a strategic leadership role with the MS organisation, the preeminent source of information, advice and services for people living with multiple sclerosis.

 

Reporting to a progressive and dynamic CEO, and working in collaboration with MS leadership across Victoria, Tasmania, NSW & ACT, you will be responsible for delivering strategic and operational leadership for the overall Fundraising & revenue generation functions to grow and diversify income, and Marketing & Communications to drive the organisation’s effectiveness and impact. 

As an important member of the leadership team you will be a strategic thinker and a ‘people person’ who can build genuine relationships. This high level role demands a professional with extensive experience in fundraising/marketing and the ability to generate funds through multiple donor channels – someone who approaches things differently from conventional ‘campaign type’ fundraising.  The position offers a competitive remuneration package and can be located in either Melbourne or Sydney.

MS is an equal opportunity employer and encourages applications from people with a lived experience of disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples; and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
