About us

WorldShare is a Christian aid and development organisation. We believe that God is the defender of the vulnerable and calls us to help those in need. Motivated by Jesus’ call to love our neighbour, we support local Christian partner organisations in developing countries around the world.

Our vision is to see lives transformed as people connect to love like Jesus. Together, we restore hope and life to the outcast and forgotten. We assist our partner organisations in their programs which care for the marginalised by protecting children, empowering women, providing education and health care, and demonstrating the love of God. We bring Australian supporters together to resource and encourage our overseas partners, through generous giving, faithful prayer and overseas partner visits. We focus primarily on international aid and development - on protecting and helping those who are marginalised, mistreated and oppressed in developing countries.

Operating since 1943, WorldShare is an established organisation and is currently going through an exciting period of change and evolution and this has seen new structure, systems and processes introduced. This next phase presents an opportunity to build on the foundations which have been developed, and your experience in the sector and in particular in fundraising and marketing will be highly valued.   You enjoy and look forward to occasionally having to rolling up your sleeves to get the work done.

The role

Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Chief Executive Officer will give sound leadership and direction towards the achievement of the organisation’s mission, strategy and objectives.  The CEO will oversee a team of eight in Sydney and will be responsible for building on the newly-created solid foundations to sustainably grow and develop the organisation. You will raise the reputation and profile of WorldShare among supporters and with the Christian faith and NFP sectors and be accountable for all aspects of operational management.   

About you

We are looking for a strong leader with a proven track record of success in senior leadership roles where you have built, led and nurtured highly effective and co-operative teams.  You will have the ability to inspire, influence and coach the newly built team. You will possess integrity, excellent leadership skills, be highly organized, have sound business and financial acumen, be tertiary qualified and have the ability to engage people in the work of WorldShare.

You will be passionate about the vision and mission, driven to lead an organisation effectively and efficiently in order for hope and life to be restored for the most marginalised around the world, in the name of Jesus.

This is one of those great opportunities for someone who is looking to make a difference in their work. While being an interim role, you will be empowered to continue to drive the organisation forward. You will play a critical role in the development and future of WorldShare.

If this role sounds like you, we would like to hear from you.
