Give us the facts. Your evidence, research, and knowledge management expertise will empower us to implement what works for children in the Pacific and demonstrate measurable impact for children and their families. Your love of evidence, data, and learning will enable us to tell a compelling story about the quality and impact of our work in the Pacific. Come play a critical role in the success of our values-based organisation.

Save the Children is no ordinary not-for-profit.

We’re ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children’s rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We run programs in Australia and overseas and, if there’s a disaster – like an earthquake, drought or conflict – we are there on the ground.

Where you come in:

In this full-time position, based somewhere in Australia or the Pacific (we’re flexible as we want the best person for the job irrespective of where you live), you will influence strategic direction and ensure high quality programming for Save the Children across the Pacific. You will be part of our International Program Department and report to the Pacific Regional Director of Program Development and Quality.

You will make an impact by:

  • Delivering against our regional Pacific strategy
  • Overseeing evidence generation, research, and learning initiatives in the Pacific
  • Promoting an organisational culture and developing a systematic process for knowledge sharing and cross learning
  • Providing high quality technical assistance to our Pacific Country Offices
  • Using our evidence to expand our child-focussed programs and impact

Does this sound like you?

You understand how the Pacific community, through policies and programs, addresses the challenges delivering results for children and keep abreast of the latest innovations. You love learning and are passionate about equipping teams to generate and use evidence to improve the impact of our work. Thriving in complex coordination settings, you are equally capable in strategic thinking and the finer details of delivering quality programs.

This role requires:

  • A commitment to using data, evidence, and program learning to continuously improve program outcomes
  • Strong analytical skills, including working with research in areas relevant to Save the Children’s agenda
  • Excellent collaboration and influencing skills
  • Tertiary level qualifications in a related field

Working at Save the Children is more than just a job.

It’s the feeling of knowing that your work is contributing to making the world a better place for children and working with others who feel the same. We offer a competitive salary, a friendly and flexible work environment, and great career opportunities – both locally and internationally.
