About CARE Australia 

CARE Australia supports women around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice. We work in partnership with local communities to provide equal opportunities for women that they have long been denied: the ability to earn an income, gain access to their fair share of resources, to lead and participate in decisions that affect their lives, and to be able to withstand the increasing impacts of climate disasters and other crises.

CARE Australia is a member of the CARE International confederation. We strive for a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.

About the Department 

The International Programs and Operations Department (IPO) comprises four units: Business Development, Capability and Impact, Pacific Partnership, and Program Delivery. 

The Department is responsible for the efficient and effective management of Australian funded programs which are delivered primarily in Asia Pacific by a range of CARE International Country Offices and other partners. Programs for which the Department is responsible include both development programs and humanitarian and emergency programs.

The Department ensures that programs are well designed, assists partners to operationalise quality guidelines and provides technical expertise to support program delivery. The Department regularly monitors program implementation and takes management action to ensure program delivery is satisfactory, contractual obligations are met and development gains are achieved. The Department builds and maintains relationships with key institutional donors to secure funding. To fulfill accountability requirements, the Department analyses program outcomes, provides reports to donors and publishes analysis and evaluations to demonstrate the impact of funded programs, enabling program knowledge to be leveraged at scale by CARE Australia and others in the sector.
