Who we are

Australian Red Cross is part of one of the largest humanitarian movements in the world seeking to build a better society based on people helping people. For more than 100 years, we have connected and mobilised thousands of volunteers and members across Australia and internationally to take humanitarian action.  Our Strategy 2020 is ambitious and is driving us to reimagine what it means to volunteer and take action.

  • High-level understanding of collaborating to ‘stand-up’ ideas, groups, initiatives, programs, networks or businesses at scale
  • Experience in leading the design of strategies, experiences or campaigns that spark action or desired behaviours
  • Excellent networking and relationship building skills, with both internal and external audiences
  • Talented communicator with the ability to convey concepts, ideas and stories across diverse audiences
  • High level experience in applying project management frameworks that test, gather insights and refine strategic approaches
  • High-level understanding and experience in supporting individuals, groups and teams to design and deliver against sprints of work in dynamic environments
  • High level understanding, experience and comfort delivering projects in emerging fields
  • Relevant tertiary qualifications or experience in humanities, business, experience design, project management, design thinking, campaigning, social entrepreneurship, design thinking, social impact or related fields
