About Orange Sky

Orange Sky is the world's-first free mobile laundry and shower service provided to people experiencing homelessness. We offer a platform for everyday Australians to connect by creating a safe, positive and supportive environment for people who are too often ignored or who feel disconnected from the community.

We currently operate 36 services across 25 locations in Australia and three services across two locations in New Zealand. There are 116,000 Australians and 41,600 Kiwis experiencing homelessness, and we’re on a mission to positively connect these communities through clean clothes, warm showers, and genuine, non-judgmental conversation.  We’re driven, dedicated, insanely ambitious and a little unconventional. We take our work seriously, but have plenty of fun along the way. We work hard and ‘get it done’, but always make time to celebrate each other’s success.

The Role

Over the last seven years, we’ve positively connected thousands of people including donors, volunteers and friends on the street. The main objective of this role is to manage and deliver individual giving programs and activities including multi-channel appeals, donor care communications, acquisition, stewardship coordination and retention activities to grow our supporter base, retain donors and increase their value.

Who are we looking for?
