Job Type: Part-time, 3 day week role – Temp to perm

Salary Range: $65K-$70K + Super

Organisational context for the position:

Charities are a wonderful vehicle for creating change because they empower ordinary people to become advocates and supporters of causes. We created Marlin to help charities get people to join them, and then hold on to those people.

We want individuals, teams and organisations doing good in the world to succeed. Our way of helping is to create effective communications for them.

Much of Marlin’s success has arisen from our ability to navigate the uncertain space between strategic intentions and creative execution. Our clients trust us because of our experience, and their endorsement has helped create a sustainable level of new business through word-of-mouth.

To achieve scale and help more organisations grow and strengthen their fundraising and marketing, Marlin needs to improve its visibility to prospective clients.

More about Marlin

We create brand identities, multi-channel marketing campaigns, direct marketing-based appeals, social media campaigns, peer-to-peer fundraising events, donor care newsletters, and digital communications platforms for the charity sector. 

Our aim is to use strategy and creativity to help our clients achieve their missions – and we firmly believe that they deserve the highest quality of creative and digital work. Because our clients have restricted budgets, our creative and strategies have to work hard to effectively achieve their goals.

By combining our strategy, creative and digital skills, we can multiply the effect our work has and help our clients grow year on year. Any one of these elements in isolation of the others is a missed opportunity.
