Senior Marketing Manager

Australia · Marketing and Communications


Today, there are more refugees, asylum seekers and displaced people worldwide than at any time since World War II. That’s more than 65 million people forced to flee their homes to escape conflict and disaster.

It’s a terrible injustice. And one that we can, and must, overcome.

We believe that when people all over the world work together, big changes really are possible. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to act in partnership with other passionate people, like you, across the globe to achieve safety, justice and dignity in communities threatened by conflict and disaster. We don’t think there’s any task more important.

Over the past 68 years our supporters have provided food, shelter, education, healthcare and training to help the world’s most vulnerable prepare for, cope with and recover from crisis.

Together we’re tackling the root causes of injustice, and are building a brighter future for everyone. We hope that you’ll join us in this vital mission.

We are currently looking for an experienced Senior Marketing Manager to join our dynamic and experienced team.

You’re a multi-disciplinary marketing strategist and creative thinker who enjoys bringing together strategy, technology and creative to solve complex problems and design experiences that inspire, but also deliver real impact.

In this role you’ll play be playing a crucial role in the Marketing and Communications Department - taking the lead in our multi-award winning Ration Challenge, building on the amazing results achieved so far, and inspiring the Australian public to do more, give more and stay longer in the fight against injustice.

The Ration Challenge is one of Australia’s leading peer to peer fundraising events. It challenges people to eat the exact same rations as a refugee for one week, get sponsored, and raise money and awareness for communities affected by conflict and disaster around the world. Since it first started in Australia with 2014 with 100 participants, it has inspired more than 80,000 people around the world to take part and raised over $14 million. We took the challenge to New Zealand in 2018, and this year launched the challenge, in partnership with like minded organisations, in the UK and US. The Ration Challenge has won 7 Fundraising Institute of Australia Awards for Excellence, including Best Event and Most Innovative Fundraising Campaign.

Understanding the mindsets held by our events participants, you’ll map and optimise their supporter journeys; and develop inspiring, multi-channel content campaigns that increase participation in the Ration Challenge and other Act for Peace events.

You’ll use your extensive skills and creativity to develop marketing collateral, PR, media and digital campaigns, and build strategic external partnerships that will grow the Ration Challenge - inspiring thousands of people to raise millions of dollars each year for vulnerable communities around the world.

You’ll be working alongside a motivated and experienced team – and you’ll be making a big and growing our contribution to achieving safety, justice and dignity in communities threatened by conflict and disaster.
