About this opportunity

Are you looking for an opportunity that will allow you to literally save people’s lives and put a smile back into their heart, mind and face again?

Compare Therapies promotes therapeutic approaches for all of the mentally, emotionally and behaviourally challenging personal, interpersonal and social difficulties the we all have to deal with at various times in our lives. The focus is to resolve those issues naturally and effectively, and importantly, to do so by prioritising lasting natural healing and enabling growth.

The Change Your Past Foundation, through its core Compare Therapies project, seeks to foster the establishment a positive focus, one that promotes direct access for everyone to effective therapeutic treatments that have the capacity to assist us to actually resolve issues in these areas of our lives.

The CHANGE YOUR PAST Foundation is a registered community charity in Australia. We believe improved ‘accessibility’ and ‘accountability’ is the key leverage to bringing effective therapeutic assistance to people who need it.

You will assist us in addressing the current huge shift in philanthropy: The new generations are seeking much more social impact investing than any generation before them. Add to this innovations in technology (sophisticated websites, crowd-funding, social media platforms, etc), which allows (and demands) a closer relationship between the donor and us, and it is clear that today’s fund-raising success depends on us being outstanding in engaging the donor and its peers, making it easy for them to give and becoming involved.

As such we ask you to identify the best ways to attract our donors and create technically sophisticated communication platforms and data collection with the assistance of our IT personnel, so that we not only can keep our donors engaged, but serve them in a way that they feel inspired to enrol their peers too.

We are looking for a Director of Fundraising with a minimum 7 years’ experience and who has professional English writing skills. It would be good if the person has entrepreneurial flair and experience in a start-up organisation. Team engagement, communication, participation, initiative, creativity and achievement skills are important to us.

Are you also interested to become part of a game-changing, 21st century style of organisation proving enormously more appropriate and effective in the modern fast changing world? - one that allows you to be who you are in a work environment, expressing your complete and unique Self without any limitations or expectations? Can you match such freedom with entrepreneurial spirit, self-discipline and responsibility? Does working in a free-flowing team environment inspire you and is communication one of your strengths?

CHANGE YOUR PAST Foundation is being developed along the lines of a TEAL organisation where the emphasis is shifted to self-initiated and self-managed contributions by all members working independently and also at the same time in closely networked collaboration both in focussed collegiate cooperation on specific tasks, and also, being productively engaged broadly across the enterprise. Expected of everyone is the ongoing demonstration of active self-developed initiative in achieving valued outcomes that contribute to the overall purpose of the organisation.

That is, leadership is to be expressed by every individual, in contributing from their own unique skills and experience, complementing the different contributions made by others who are in the same way expert in their own areas and tasks.

Directors, Managers, Heads and Coordinators have a main responsibility to facilitate, encourage and support this open process and shepherd its constantly self-evolving coordination and creative direction, all networked together in mutually mindful and committed relationship, within the overall purpose of the organisation.

We don’t need to point out the responsibility that comes with this position and the trust we would place in you. You would work from where-ever you want, being connected with the whole team via phone or video-conferencing when-ever required. We do not ask you to commit to or for a specific time, but we ask you to deliver results.

Geographic location isn’t important to us. You don’t need to be based in Victoria or Australia for that matter. It would be a Plus though, if you can research funding opportunities overseas as we have a global vision.

Benefits for you are that after 6 months active contribution we will certify your Achievement Portfolio and also act as your referee.

So if you have the expertise, the passion and the desire to create a beautiful legacy, then get in touch.
