Chief fundraising officer jobs
This is an exciting opportunity for a passionate skilled fundraising professional to join a small, creative, and influential NGO, as we deliver our activities championing the equality and human rights of LGBT+ persons and other disadvantaged groups across the Commonwealth using an intersectional lens.
We have recently developed and signed off on our 3-year organisational fundraising strategy, which comes with it our main objective: to diversify KT’s funding beyond Government grants, bringing our restricted and unrestricted funding into better balance.
This will in turn:
● Increase the financial stability and sustainability of KT by building our core income and connecting with new donors
● Allow for long-term planning and long-term commitment to our work in specific localities (which a reliance on Government funding, typically one- or two-year funding cycles, does not).

● Allow us to make flexible decisions around funding, responding quickly to immediate needs within our own, and partners organisations.

We are an equal opportunity employer and we especially encourage applications from women, the vast and varied members of the LGBT+ communities, the multiply-marginalised, and Black and minority ethnic people.

● Identify key corporate prospects and develop sustainable, profitable partnerships by preparing and delivering pitches and proposals as required.

● Identify and maximise opportunities for data capture and ensure all data is managed in a way compliant with current best practice.
● Identifying key opportunities to engage individual and corporate supporters through the year, e.g. LGBT+ History Month, Pride Month and other notable dates.
● As appropriate across income streams, make timely and compelling applications for funding in line within the strategic plan, including but not limited to: proposals to trusts and foundations and major donors; pitches and presentations to local companies for corporate sponsorship options.
● Use digital media to connect, communicate and reach supporters and develop fundraising initiatives.

The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action.
For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias, or favouritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life — in its social, political, economic, civic, and cultural dimensions — her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education, and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens — addressing inequity — not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfil their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nation.
