Every five minutes, stroke destroys lives. Help us rebuild them and join our team.

About the PKD Charity
Founded in 2000, we’re the first and only UK charity solely dedicated to improving the lives of an estimated 70,000 individuals and their families affected by polycystic kidney disease (PKD) in the UK.

Founded in 2004, Sabre Education is a leading and award-winning early childhood education international NGO. We work in close partnership with the Government of Ghana to deliver universal access to quality pre-primary education and our aim is to give every child the best possible start through quality early years education.
Kindergarten education, for children aged four and five, was introduced in Ghana nationally in 2007. Whilst a great achievement, equivalent gains have not been made in the quality of education, meaning young children are still experiencing poor learning outcomes at a critical stage of their development.
Our mission is to support Ghana in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4.2 – universal access to quality early childhood education. In partnership with the Ghanaian Government and two other INGOs, we are on the cusp of implementing a programme to roll out our teacher training on a national scale. To support this, we are recruiting a Senior Institutional and Trusts Manager to work closely with our Director of Fundraising and Communications in the delivery of our fundraising strategy, building long-term relationships with institutional and trust funders and inspiring them to support our work.
We are seeking an experienced institutional fundraiser, ideally with experience in trust fundraising and a passion for the power of education, to join our team and develop our institutional and larger trust fundraising income. You will have demonstrable experience and success in securing funding from institutional funders including bilateral and multilateral. Experience in partnership working with other INGOs would be beneficial, although not essential. Line management experience is also desirable, as this role will manage a small team.
We offer a supportive and collaborative team culture. The role is completely home-based, with the cost of occasional travel to team and donor meetings covered. This role has a lot of responsibility and an opportunity to experience new things. We hope you’re excited by that.
We plan to interview on 12th December, so if you are interested please contact our recruitment partners at Peridot Partners to discuss this role in detail.
