Why Greening Australia

We are the environmental enterprise that thinks bigger than the environment. We started conserving and restoring Australia’s landscapes in 1982 and we haven’t stopped since. At Greening Australia, we work on major programs that bring life to landscapes and restore balance to the natural environment in significant areas across Australia.

In 2018 we set our 2030 vision and impact goals which include the aim to plant half a billion trees by 2030. Proudly rooted in 38 years of history as a national not-for-profit, in 2019, Greening Australia took a new direction re-framing our brand as an environmental enterprise, a critical step in meeting our 2030 goals.

The Role

This new program is yours to shape and build with an identified pipeline of 100 bequest donors to engage to get the program up and running.

In addition to your existing portfolio of relationships, the Partnerships Manager will also seek to identify and acquire new donors to grow the portfolio and work with our Foundation team to secure income opportunities in line with the fundraising goals.

Working effectively with internal stakeholders to progress and develop new supporter relationships will be key to the roles’ success.  Specifically you will work across several internal stakeholder groups to develop tailored proposals and project updates and reporting, so experience in managing project coordination will be beneficial.

Key activities in this role would include writing grant applications, developing compelling proposals, acquittals, reporting and stewardship activity including delivering an engaging donor journey through planned engagement, networking and events.

You will have a passion for working with people and a natural curiosity to seek out mission alignment with prospective donors – matching donor aspirations with Greening Australia’s vision to restore Australian landscapes at scale.  You will have a high level of integrity and accountability with a focus on achieving your goals through a ‘donor-centric’ approach, ensuring that relationships with supporters are meaningful and long-lasting.

This role will be fast-paced, have lots of variety, and will involve engaging with a range of stakeholders as well as working collaboratively with our Foundation team to meet our goals. Bringing your ‘can do’ attitude and solutions focused approach will be essential to your success.
