Compassion in World Farming was founded in 1967 by a British farmer who became horrified by the development of modern, intensive factory farming. Today we campaign peacefully to end all factory farming practices. We believe that the biggest cause of cruelty on the planet deserves a focused, specialised approach – so we only work on farm animal welfare.
Our international headquarters are in Godalming (UK) and we also have European offices in Bologna (Italy), Paris, Warsaw, Nijmegen (the Netherlands) and Brussels as well as an office in China (Beijing) and a team in the US.
Purpose of the role
The purpose of this role is to build on our strong track record by delivering rapid growth in global income to achieve an end to factory farming. To do this, the post holder is set a target of achieving an ambitious, but we believe achievable, annual global income of £15 million by the end of 2022.
You will bring dynamic and outward-looking international leadership to our fundraising operation. You will be an ambitious and entrepreneurial international fundraiser, experienced in remarkable and dynamic net income growth, with a strong desire to change the world for animals, people and planet.
You will operate as a strategic partner to the CEO and the Board of trustees, and as a member of the Global Leadership Team (GLT). You will nurture key external relationships and represent Compassion in World Farming (Compassion) externally.
You will have strategic responsibility for all international revenue-generating programmes and activities, including engagement with new donor audiences and new markets, and for marketing aimed at building brand awareness internationally.
You will require creativity, innovation, entrepreneurship and transformational leadership. You will be able to demonstrate a track record in scaling up existing fundraising programmes, managing and stewarding High Net Worth Individuals and international foundations, particularly in the US, and ideally leading market entry for fundraising into new countries or regions. You will also be adept at building mutually rewarding relationships with ultra-high net worth funders, investors and grant making bodies.
You will be able to make the smartest fundraising investments to optimise long-term and sustainable income whilst also working closely with colleagues to ensure that the wider organisation is poised and ready for the demands and changes of such a programme.
Your passion for transforming Compassion’s impact will be matched by your expertise in relationship fundraising and the need for a truly donor-centric fundraising strategy – where our supporters are at the heart of everything we do.
You will both deliver direct activities and build teams to achieve these goals, and work in partnership across Compassion to support all colleagues engaged with donors and fundraising in field and HQ offices.
If you need to work remotely because of distance to the HQ in UK, we would expect you to be present in the HQ office for a minimum of five days per month. To achieve these goals, you will provide leadership and direction to the global Fundraising team.
