About City Cancer Challenge (C/CAN):
City Cancer Challenge Foundation (C/Can) supports cities around the world as they work to improve access to equitable, quality cancer care.
The approach is built on the core principle that cities can drive impact at national level by crafting data-driven solutions with the support of a network of global, regional, and local partners that reflect an understanding of the unique local context.

In close collaboration with the Director of Global Affairs, the Head of Institutional Fundraising will support C/Can resource mobilisation efforts aimed at enhancing and building relationships within the Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) global health network as well as diversifying and opening up new funding opportunities.
The new Head of Institutional Fundraising will be a self-starter, relationship builder with international experience and already established networks within foundations and governmental field in the health sector. It will be someone who can open doors and unblock funding mechanisms to support C/CAN programmes at the city, country, and regional levels, and who will open and cultivate relationships with new funders and help diversify funding by acquiring new grants from governments and large foundations.

- Open and develop new relationships and partnerships to position C/CAN within the right local and global health donors.

- Maintain data on relationships with institutional prospects and donors up-to-date in C/Can’s CRM system.
Desired knowledge, skills, and abilities:
- Minimum of 10 years of experience with fundraising/resource mobilisation, ideally in global health, with a relevant donor and stakeholder network.
- Experience in global development, with the ability to navigate the global health discussions.
- Experience in successfully managing a portfolio of funding opportunities from prospect research to grant agreement.
- Self-starter and independent worker with the ability to go out and pursue new prospects with minimum support, helping C-CAN build from zero a fundraising pipeline.
- Demonstrable fundraising track record (> USD1 million gifts), including cultivating corporate and individual gifts or sponsorships at local, regional, and ideally international level.
- Experience of working in a multicultural environment with excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to multi-task.
