Grants, Sponsorship & Marketing Director opportunity
Being the LEAD Group’s Grants, Sponsorship & Marketing Director is an opportunity to “grow your own” paid position in a global environmental health charity.
The LEAD Group (www.lead.org.au) aims to eliminate lead poisoning globally and to protect the global environment from lead [especially Australian lead]. The LEAD Group runs the Global Lead Advice & Support Service (GLASS) which has handled over 78,000 inquiries from 129 countries, providing free information and referrals about lead poisoning and lead contamination prevention and management. Our popular website has had around 1.8 million page views by people in 213 countries. GLASS is run on a small amount of government funding, which currently pays 1.4 staff wages and relies almost entirely on volunteers to stay running and keep providing the knowledge that is making kids smarter and adults live longer (by preventing lead poisoning).
What we need if we are to continue this fight successfully, is more public awareness of lead poisoning/contamination and why lead needs to be managed. Every lead testing kit sold helps a single family to prevent lead poisoning. We want these kits available in every country but they’re currently only available in Australia.
Now we urgently need you to put all your knowledge & experience to the test – search out grant & sponsorship opportunities – write the funding applications that win the grants so we can employ you AND lead-knowledgeable staff to spread our message; use your marketing skills to increase donations and memberships plus the sales of our lead testing kits sufficient to employ a full-time kit administrator. If you think you can help to market us effectively to the media, the government and the public, then we need you to phone us today!
We offer flexible working hours to fit around your studies or other working commitments including the ability to work from home providing you have internet access. Our perfume-free office is located in Summer Hill 300m from Summer Hill Station and we are happy to reimburse our volunteers for all of their public transport costs.
No knowledge of lead poisoning or other problems associated with lead is required, we are the lead experts and can provide any information required for the job, all we need is someone to help us get that information out there, sell more kits and gain sponsorship or grants which will enable us to employ you to gain more revenue to employ more staff.
As part of your role here, you also have the opportunity to be trained or develop your skills in Windows XP Professional, Microsoft Access, Outlook Express, Internet Explorer, Excel and Word. The LEAD Group is also happy to provide both written and spoken references to any potential employers of our volunteers.
This Volunteering Opportunity is located in the 2130 postcode.
