THE ROLES

ASSISTANT DIRECTOR OF FUNDRAISING, HIGH VALUE

ASSISTANT DIRECTOR OF FUNDRAISING, PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT

HEAD OF PARTNERSHIPS


ABOUT THE CHARITY

For almost 40 years, across nearly 50 countries, Action Against Hunger has led the global fight against hunger. The charity’s incredible front line projects help communities before and after disaster strikes, enabling over nine million people every year to provide for themselves. Their UK office has been going for 20 years and is one of five global headquarters.

It is a key time for the charity, as they move to new premises in SE London after recently completing a fundraising and communications restructure, informed by what the whole team felt was needed. Action Against Hunger has developed well in recent years, and are now positioned to extend this to 2020 and beyond.

Since 2014, the headcount of the UK fundraising team has grown from 18 the 32. The new restructure will take the team to 36. Their recent growth has built on their particular strengths within relationship fundraising, events and student fundraising, and has seen fundraised income grow from around £2.2m to £3.8m.

This restructured team will enable them to grow to £5m by 2020. It will give them the resources, structure, focus and leadership to build on these strengths, while investing in and developing their weaker areas.

As part of these changes, we are delighted to be working with Action Against Hunger to recruit the following roles. To be considered for any of the positions, please get in touch. We submit applications to Action Against Hunger on Monday 25 June.
