Job description

We are looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic and motivated Senior Associate of Philanthropy to help us raise vital funds to teach the unreached. We work in some of the poorest areas of Cambodia, Myanmar and Nepal, to support children who would otherwise have no access to a school. This is a great opportunity for someone with some fundraising experience to join an incredible team, to build and manage relationships with a growing network of donors around the world and work with an incredibly committed CEO and management team who will support you to achieve great things. 


About the Organisation

United World Schools is dedicated to improving the educational opportunities of poor and marginalised children around the world. By providing children with a basic education, we are striking at the heart of long term poverty and deprivation – a long game but one we are tackling head on and with ambition and commitment. UWS provides a flexible education model that is simple yet effective in remote regions. The model follows the national curriculum, whilst supporting teachers to implement educational programmes that are appropriate for the contexts in which they are working.

We are a  growing team of 16 staff based in London and we have a much bigger team delivering our programmes in Cambodia, Myanmar and Nepal. All of our staff are incredibly passionate about what they do, and committed to going above and beyond for the cause. In London, where this role would be based, we have a fun and dynamic office environment featuring team socials, music, Bake Off sweepstakes and the occasional team karaoke night! The  Senior Associate of Philanthropy would also have the opportunity to fly out and support some of our projects, and see first-hand what it means to provide education in remote and marginalised communities. 

Responsibilities (including, but not limited to):

  • Researching and building relationships with newly identified HNWI and prospects

  • Stewardship of a set of existing high net worth individual donors, ensuring they are kept up to date on the impact of their support

  • Meeting with funders to build strong relationships and secure significant one-off and multi-year donations

  • Delivering the highest level of customer care and taking responsibility for your own portfolio of donors

  • Growing UWS’ pipeline of individual donors by undertaking prospect research and creating solicitation plans, organising cultivation events and networking

  • Drafting compelling proposals and reports for new and existing donors

  • Maintaining contact with our Programmes Teams in Cambodia, Myanmar and Nepal to gain accurate information for funders

  • Liaising with our Finance team to construct accurate budgets for funders, and reporting on expenditure against these budgets where necessary

  • Supporting, planning and coordination of key events such as pledge dinners, cultivation and networking events, our bi-annual Gala dinner and our twice yearly Donor Trips

  • Developing our ‘in aid of’ fundraising initiative to grow our network of donors and supporters

  • Supporting the development of more junior staff and  interns as required

  • Undertaking other fundraising or administrative tasks that are compatible with the nature of this role.

How to Apply

To apply for this position, please send a comprehensive CV (max 2 pages) and covering letter (no more than 2 pages). Please be advised that we will not accept applications without a detailed covering letter that fully addresses the appointment criteria in the person specification. 

Please contact us as soon as possible if you are interested in the role. We reserve the right to close this vacancy earlier than the specified date. Telephone interviews will be held throughout the process, with a final interview following the week of Monday 6th January 2020 (or as soon as practical after this date).

Start date is ASAP. Please let us know what your notice period is in your cover letter.
