Job description

Are you looking to build on your fundraising experience and do meaningful work in the international development sector? Join our friendly team and directly impact the lives of women and girls in Uganda from day one.

The Charity

Act4Africa UK supports the work of Act4Africa Uganda, an award-winning development organization based in Mayuge District with a 20-year track record of successful poverty relief and women’s empowerment programmes. Act4Africa addresses extreme poverty by tackling gender inequality via health, education, agriculture, and livelihoods interventions. You will be joining a small team of 3 in the UK, and you will have regular direct contact with staff based in Uganda. See our website for more information.

The Role

This is a unique opportunity to work with a friendly and passionate team to have a direct impact on helping girls and women in Uganda. This is primarily a donor-facing role, however unlike similar roles in larger organisations, you will be directly connected with our programme team who are delivering poverty relief interventions on the ground. This role is a great step up for someone who has been working in fundraising but is looking for the opportunity to develop their skills, take on more responsibility, and make a real difference. The role is also ideal for someone who is looking for flexibility as you will work remotely and your working pattern can be planned around your personal situation and goals. This role is ideal for someone who is self-driven, passionate and wants to make a real impact.

As the Fundraiser at Act4Africa UK, you will lead and develop the individual giving programmes, inspiring and motivating donors to engage with the organisation more often and more deeply.

You will develop existing and new propositions, products, audiences, channels, and technology and deliver creative supporter journeys that build long-term loyalty and value.

Job Description

You will report directly to the CEO and work closely with the Senior Leaderships Team to:

  • Lead on and manage all communications with individual donors, building and strengthening relationships
  • Develop and enhance the supporter journey, creating an inspiring donor experience that builds long-term engagement 
  • Provide insight and evaluation on the donor audience, campaign performance and opportunities
  • Increase our regular and one off donations
  • Assist with budgets
  • Work with the other team members to manage major donor giving
  • Work with the Marketing Manager to reach a wider audience, developing and implementing marketing campaigns
  • Work with the Finance Manager to monitor income and financial targets
  • Work collaboratively to strengthen our fundraising strategy and systems
  • Support the fundraising and communications activities of the team in Uganda
  • Support the Senior Leadership Team with other tasks when required

About You 

Essential Experience and Qualities:

  • Enthusiasm for the role, a team spirit, and a can-do attitude
  • Flexibility; willingness to take on new tasks related to fundraising or logistics as the need arises
  • Creativity and an eye for detail
  • Experience of successful individual giving income generation and management 
  • Previous work experience in a charity or non-profit organisation
  • Previous experience of creating activity programmes and business plans to recruit, engage, inspire and retain donors
  • Experience of creating and delivering multi-channel campaigns and using digital channels to acquire new donors 
  • A track record of providing excellent customer and/or donor care 
  • Experience of using a CRM database, audience segmentation and using data analytics 
  • Solid knowledge of the regulatory environment for fundraising from individuals, including data protection, Gift Aid and fundraising codes of practice and regulation
  • Good analytical, forecasting and numeracy skills
  • Proficiency in emailing systems such as Mailchimp
  • Must have the right to work in the UK

Desirable Experience and Qualities:

  • Major donor relationship management
  • Other types of fundraising experience (Corporate, Events, etc)
  • Experience or interest in marketing 
  • Previous paid or volunteer work in the international development sector
  • Lived experience in Africa
  • Volunteer management


Application Instructions

Please submit your CV and a cover letter detailing how you fit the criteria for this role, why you would be a good fit for our organisation, and what unique qualities you bring that set you apart from the crowd.

Applications without a cover letter will not be considered.
