About Five Talents
Since we began, Five Talents has supported over 260,000 families globally to grow their incomes and provide for their families. We work in partnership with local organisations to provide literacy, numeracy, money management and business skills training, and set up Savings Groups through which members can borrow small loans. Consequently, members develop small businesses enabling families to send their children to school, visit the clinic when they are sick and become more resilient to crises such as drought or Coronavirus. Our role is to enable them to be ‘agents of their own change’ and equip the Groups to continue operating independently long after Five Talents’ support ends.
Five Talents has grown its income signiﬁcantly over recent years despite the global and domestic challenges throughout that period. We are now embarking on a new, ambitious, ﬁve year growth plan as we are determined to scale up even further; we know demand for our programmes will be higher than ever as communities in eastern Africa and beyond seek to re-build their businesses and communities, and build resilience to drought and food insecurity.
We are the Anglican Church's microﬁnance charity, founded as a Christian response to global poverty - but of course people of all faiths (and none) join our programmes and we never evangelise.
About this role
We are looking for someone who is passionate about international development to join our small Five Talents team to help us achieve our ambitious goals, and particularly to support our Trust Fundraising and Communications & Events team members.
The role will give you the opportunity to develop key skills in the charity sector as you grow with us. We are open to candidates with little or no experience in the charity sector, to oﬀer them the opportunity to begin their career. We are particularly interested in applications from those who have not had the opportunity to volunteer internationally or undertake unpaid internships.
We respect and value diversity of background, skills and perspectives within our teams. We are an inclusive organisation and welcome applications from everyone. We are committed to conscious inclusion that helps build connection and shared purpose across the team. We believe that the more diverse we are, the better we become and we seek a range of voices and perspectives to enrich all that we do.
We understand that our colleagues have commitments and personal interests outside of work and we strive to build a ﬂexible working environment, in which people can perform at their best. We are happy to discuss ﬂexible working options for all roles.
We work to ensure that our recruitment processes are as inclusive as possible to everyone. This includes making adjustments for people who have a disability or long-term condition. If you would like us to make adjustments during the application process, please contact us.
It’s an exciting time to join our dynamic, friendly, passionate team as we expand our programmes across eastern Africa and beyond. There will be scope for the right person to shape the role according to their own strengths, and to grow with us.
