Queensland Development Director
Closes: 27 November
UN Youth Queensland Inc. is the Queensland division of UN Youth Australia, a national youth-led organisation that aims to educate and empower young Australians on global issues facing the world. Our broad range of sector-leading peer-education programs educate over 15,000 young Australians each year from across every state and territory. UN Youth Queensland is looking for a new Development Director to join its team in 2021.
‘Queensland Development Director’ is a new position on the UN Youth Queensland Executive. As such, it is much your own to develop and define. Broadly speaking, the Development Director is responsible for managing sponsorship, partnerships and grants for the division – actively seeking out opportunities to enhance the division’s financial position.
The Development Director, over the course of the year, will look to develop new partnerships with external organizations, and strengthen the relationships UN Youth Queensland already has with various groups and bodies. The Development Director, together with the Operations Director and President, will foster new partnerships that may allow for the sharing of educational resources, venues, and personnel. The Development Director will sit *ex officio* on all organizing committees for all events – helping to secure sponsorship for our programs.
No prior experience with UN Youth, or knowledge of the United Nations, is required. Applicants must be under 25 years of age.
This is a fantastic opportunity for those looking to build their administrative experience, and work in a safe environment designed for young people. All necessary training will be provided. Any costs incurred in your duty as a volunteer will be reimbursed.
The time commitment is 10-15 hours a week. This role is very manageable around study and work commitments.
