Job description

We are an ambitious and rapidly growing INGO, headquartered in Brighton. We have around 30 staff, based in our offices in the UK, Nepal and Kenya, and have just appointed a new Kenya Country Director to develop an innovative new programme there. 

This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced NGO fundraiser to lead business development and communications for a dynamic international development INGO that is empowering the world’s poorest people to transform their lives through clean energy. Reporting to the CEO, you will be a key member of Renewable World’s Global Executive Team, leading a team of four fundraisers (two direct reportees), with potential to expand in the future.

The Director of Fundraising will be responsible for growing Renewable World’s income to deliver our 2022-2025 strategy.

Key Responsibilities:
• Lead the development and implementation of Renewable World’s fundraising strategy to deliver our current and future strategic priorities. 

• Build our existing diversified portfolio across institutional donors, Trusts & Foundations, individuals, High Net Worth Individuals (HNWIs) and corporates.

• Prepare the foundations and drive scale-up in larger multi-year funding partnerships from institutional donors, Trusts & Foundations, and corporates, including directing our concept and partnership development work towards high value opportunities. 

• Define, deliver and report on fundraising targets, forecasts and performance, consistent with the strategy and agreed by the CEO and Board. 

• Implement a strategic and efficient approach to fundraising – including pipeline development through market research on funding opportunities, networking to secure early visibility, competitor analysis, teaming arrangements, and making go/no go recommendations. 

• Implement effective account management with major current and future strategic partners and funders. 

• Oversee all bids and proposals and lead the preparation of high value bids and proposals (responsibilities to be defined with Director of Global Programmes).

• When Renewable World’s Gold Standard improved cookstove project begins to deliver credits (2023- 24 onwards), lead our approach to maximising donation revenues from existing and future partners with credible net zero plans. 

• Oversee streamlined funder reporting, including improving internal systems and templates for project updates from project managers. 

• Develop impactful partnerships with existing and new funders and partners, coordinating a whole team approach, leveraging all our networks. 

• Advise local offices in originating local funding opportunities and developing project concepts.

• Develop alliances and consortia with potential partners for larger opportunities, and lead teaming negotiations and contracting. 

• Develop and implement a strategic communications plan to support our fundraising, including building our brand as go-to experts with strategic funders and partners. 

• Ensure the fundraising team and other relevant resources are aligned to strategic priorities, and take an inclusive approach to organisational and business process change. 

• Represent and promote Renewable World at external events.

Person Specification:
• At least 7 years’ experience in NGO fundraising and proposal preparation. Experience in energy access or climate change is desirable, but not essential.

• A graduate or postgraduate qualification in a relevant discipline.

• A track record in leading winning proposals for projects of >£1 million, with institutional donors and/or Trusts & Foundations. 

• Experience in partnership development, including forming alliances and consortia for proposals and project implementation. 

• Strong written communication skills, with the ability to prepare high-quality proposals and concept notes, and communicate complex ideas in an accessible way. • Strong analytical, research and numerical skills. 

• Excellent organisational skills, with experience in managing multiple projects and delivering under pressure to deadline. 

• Experience in leading and managing teams to grow their impact with limited resources. 

• An inspiring, credible and persuasive communicator. 

• A team player, with great team and people management skills. 

• Fluency in written and spoken English. 

• A commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.

• A passion for our mission and values.  

This is a busy and business critical role. It is advertised as a full-time position, but part-time working will be considered (e.g. 4 days per week; less than that would be difficult). We operate a hybrid working mode. The successful applicant would be expected to be in the office at least twice a week on average. While we are extremely busy, we prioritise a work life balance. We offer a generous leave package of 30 days FTE plus bank holidays, and time off in lieu when needed. 

We are an equal opportunity employer, committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. We positively encourage applications from all qualified candidates. We do not discriminate on the basis of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, disability, or any other non-merit factor.
