Save the Children’s global presence is huge.

We’re ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children’s rights.

In this full-time, maximum term 12 month position, you will support the Humanitarian Team to deliver high-quality strategic projects on time and on budget, and support activities that build our profile in emergency response in Australia and the Pacific Region.

  • Leading or supporting discrete projects, which may include, drafting design concept notes, project designs, budgets, workplans, proposals, evaluations, progress and final reports.


If we could compose the perfect you…

You have a passion for quality and inclusive humanitarian response. Your country office focus demonstrates your great communication skills, and you can plan, manage and coordinate your workload to meet a broad variety of tasks and responsibilities.

  • Demonstrated ability to support projects across remotely located working environments
  • Degree in relevant field, such as International Development Studies
  • Familiarity of DFAT and/or the Australian Humanitarian Partnerships, in particular ability to draft proposals or reports for DFAT funding.


Working at Save the Children is more than just a job.

It’s the feeling of knowing that your work is contributing to making the world a better place for children and working with others who feel the same. In addition to a connection to social causes, you will have access to:  

  • Opportunity to work on additional projects alongside business as usual
