  • Work closely with international teams to support in-country funding applications;
  • Establish strong relationships with existing funders, providing excellent stewardship and identifying opportunities for further long term support;
  • Collaborate with other NGOs in key thematic areas – eg Bond Funding Working Group, consortium partners etc.
Person specification

The role would best suit:

  • An experienced institutional/statutory/trusts and foundations fundraiser with expertise of £100k+ proposals and projects;
  • A proactive relationship builder – looking out for opportunities on a global scale and building networks to support funding opportunities;
  • A detail orientated individual who can communicate complex information to a variety of audiences – ideally with experience/knowledge of international fundraising.
