As ECPAT UK's fundraising and partnerships officer, you will lead the development and implementation of our fundraising strategy to enable us to deliver our vital work with trafficked children and young people. Working alongside our small but vibrant team of experts, you'll be responsible for securing new sources of income, aiming to meet or surpass targets whilst strengthening relationships with our current supporters. Working closely with the CEO, programme leads, and Finance Committee, you will actively develop a programme of funding opportunities, write bids for ECPAT UK’s programmes and projects and agree on targets that enable ECPAT UK to meet its objectives as it grows. 


Every Child Protected Against Trafficking (ECPAT UK) is a leading children's rights organisation working to protect children from trafficking and transnational exploitation. We support children everywhere to uphold their rights and to live a life free from abuse and exploitation. We do this through a programme of research, policy, campaigns and advocacy work; training of frontline professionals and direct work with young victims of exploitation.

  • Work closely with the CEO to help devise ECPAT UK’s three year fundraising strategy to be approved by the Board.
  • Work with the CEO and Programme Leads to agree on programme budgets and fundraising targets, and lead the fundraising team to achieve or exceed these targets.
  • Co-ordinate fundraising across multiple income streams, including but not limited to trusts and foundations, statutory bodies, EU bodies, corporations, individuals and major donors that have the potential to support ECPAT UK’s work and align with its vision, mission and goals.
  • Research and identify new opportunities, and write persuasive funding applications that secure income to meet the funding requirements of ECPAT UK’s activities. This includes across all its programmes – advocacy, policy and campaigns; research; training; and youth development  as well funding the costs.
  • Represent ECPAT UK’s interests at networking events and meetings with potential donors.
  • Build and maintain relationships with charitable trusts, foundations and other statutory and non-statutory institutions, high profile and high net worth individuals, and corporations through effective donor stewardship:
  • Ensure that all funder reporting requirements are met to a high standard; including correct expenditure of grant monies, submission of timely reports and completion of evaluation or audit tasks as required.
  • Ensure that individual fundraisers, community fundraisers and major donors are thanked, engaged and made to feel valued.
  • Maintain high levels of transparency regarding usage of grant monies, and adhere to all legal requirements and best practice as described by the Fundraising Regulator.
  • Maintain accurate records for all donors and funding applications, and ensure that ECPAT UK’s grants management systems are kept up-to-date.
  1. Teamwork responsibilities
  • Manage and motivate a team of volunteers who engage in fundraising activities by providing clear work plans and giving regular supervision.
  • Engage with the wider ECPAT UK team of employees, volunteers and trustees to ensure that the organisation’s good work is effectively communicated to all financial supporters.
  • Attend and participate in team meetings and Finance Advisory Committee meetings, providing information on income levels, spending restrictions and project budgets.
  • Work closely with programme leads and the CEO to ensure all grants are correctly utilised and conditions and targets are met.
  • Undertake appropriate responsibilities and roles as and when required to ensure effective team working for the success of ECPAT UK.


Essential skills and experience
