This role will be responsible for trusts and foundation relationships which support across these core themes. The post-holder will work with key stakeholders in-country to manage existing relationships and develop the pipeline to identify new opportunities.
This role has a broader remit across the British Asian Trust’s thematic areas, working with funders who sit outside of the specified institutional and anti-trafficking remits detailed in the other two positions.
The role will be responsible for securing new funding relationships (50%) and managing a portfolio of existing donors (50% – approximately £500k of annual income).
The post-holder will work closely with the Head of Programme Fundraising, as well as the wider Fundraising Team, in-country staff and senior management, to secure significant and sustainable income for programmes in South Asia.
