Communications Contractor

Consultant at GoFundMe

at Sydney

GoFundMe Australia is looking for a communications contractor to join our team to help more Australians reach their fundraising goals. This is a fast-paced role helping Australians across the country, and around the world, share their stories and reach more potential donors. We’re looking for a Sydney-based contractor to join our team four days a week to discover, pitch and manage national, state and regional media opportunities. This is an initial three month contract with the possibility to extend. About GoFundMe: - GoFundMe is changing the way the world gives online. Everyday Australians are turning to GoFundMe to support a loved one, community, charity or stranger in their time of need. - GoFundMe launched in Australia in 2016 and one in ten Australians have now donated to a GoFundMe fundraiser. - 2020 has seen unprecedented levels of giving, from helping victims of the Australian bushfires, supporting with the health and economic impacts of COVID-19, indigenous injustice causes and beyond. Our Sydney-based team needs an extra set of hands to help Australian organisers reach their goals. Roles and responsibilities: - Work directly with the GoFundMe comms team and campaign organisers to help facilitate media interviews and manage campaign amplification efforts to help more campaign organisers reach their fundraising goals. - Discover, pitch and secure stories about GoFundMe campaigns and, where relevant, crowdfunding trends to key Australian media outlets. Drive “impact comms” and bring to life the impact of donations with regional and national media outlets. - Have your finger on the pulse of breaking issues and monitor for relevant campaigns, monitor live news feeds, social platforms, and digital sources to assemble and distribute the most engaging GoFundMe campaigns. - Build and maintain strong relationships with reporters and generate positive news on a regular basis. - Develop and deploy creative campaign media strategies and innovative PR plans highlighting inspiring GoFundMe campaigns and ensuring the role of their fundraising is front and centre. You: - A Sydney-based contractor able to work flexibly both from home and at GoFundMe’s co-working space. GoFundMe will provide a laptop for work use only. - A contractor with public relations experience, solid media contacts, a strong knowledge of Australia’s media landscape and key current and emerging societal issues across the country. - Passion to help Australians in their time of need.
