The Australian Ballet

Sydney, NSW

Posted on: 11 January 2019

Closing date: 4 February, 2019

The Australian Ballet is one of the world’s leading national ballet companies, existing to delight and inspire all Australians through the power of ballet. To achieve its vision to be globally acclaimed as one of the world’s leading national ballet companies and as the pre-eminent ballet company in the Asia-Pacific region, The Australian Ballet will commence a new Five Year Strategic Plan in 2019, strengthening its focus and the way it interacts with its communities at all levels.

To ensure its ambitious strategic goals are achieved and its high level of excellence is sustained, The Australian Ballet relies on key funding from government bodies, at Federal, State and Local level, and from large philanthropic trusts and foundations. The Externa Relations team is seeking a new Grants Manager who will be responsible for supporting The Australian Ballet and its subsidiary Orchestra Victoria by securing funding from these sources. The postholder will play a critical role in maintaining cross-departmental collaboration to procure information and data for funding application submissions and acquittals.

You must be an exceptional writer and storyteller who can translate The Australian Ballet/ Orchestra Victoria requirements into compelling talking points and stories. Your proven track record in securing grants successfully and writing comprehensive reports will be matched by your attention to detail and superior time and project management skills. You will be able to liaise with a variety of stakeholders, both internal and external, effectively.

Fundamental to success in this role will be a passion and enthusiasm for The Australian Ballet, its work, aspirations and values.
