Medical research has successfully beaten most disease – it will beat cancer. Cancer Council Queensland (CCQ) is the state’s leading independent organisation in cancer control and is committed to a cancer free future.
We recognise that Queenslanders want to help in different ways. This is why we offer a range of options – from making one-off or ongoing donations to hosting events and purchasing merchandise. There is something for everyone! The Supporter Services team provides exceptional customer service to all donors who fundraise for CCQ.
About the role
This is your opportunity to join our passionate Fundraising team and make a difference! You will be responsible for delivering the highest standard of customer service to all valued donors and the general public who are engaged in fundraising activities for Cancer Council Queensland. You will work closely across the entire fundraising portfolio to provide guidance and support to our donors, helping them achieve their fundraising goals and, ultimately, our collective mission to raise funds to beat cancer.
You will assist the broader Fundraising team to develop engaging scripts and facilitate all outbound phone calls to past and current donors across all fundraising campaigns to secure their ongoing support. You will also have the opportunity to recruit, train and inspire volunteers to assist in all areas of the Supporter Services team including inbound and outbound donor communication and fundraising administration tasks.
CCQ has two Supporter Services Officer positions available. The roles are both 12 month full-time, maternity leave cover contracts, with the possibility of extension.
To be successful in this role, you must have strong experience in a customer service, telephone support or administrative role, and excellent communication skills, both written and oral. You will also have exceptional organisational and time management skills, and be customer service focussed and compassionate when interacting with supporters and the general public.
Your ability to work closely and effectively in a team to meet and achieve organisational goals is essential. Previous experience working with volunteers, in a fundraising environment and/or a Certificate III in Business Administration is highly desirable.
If you have the passion and enthusiasm to make a difference, then we would love to hear from you.
