Development Coordinator

Are you our next Development Coordinator? Join the MIJF team in a unique time of organisational growth, and play a key role in our enhanced focus on funding and philanthropy. An integral role in the MIJF team, you will support the expansion and diversification of MIJF’s financial supporter base, and help nurture and grow MIJF’s key stakeholder relationships.

The primary focus of the role is to support the Deputy CEO & Development Director in implementing a full suite of development activity for the Melbourne International Jazz Festival across the areas of funding, philanthropy and partnerships. You’ll support the effective day-to-day management of sponsor, donor and partner relationships, and help deliver year-round and in-season events. You’ll also assist with grant writing, reporting and acquittals, and oversee MIJF’s database for donors and members.

If you’re a motivated self-starter, with a genuine interest in the cultural sector, and an appreciation for the importance of music in fostering community connection and wellbeing – we would love to hear from you!
