Able Child Africa works with partner organisations in Africa to protect, educate and empower children with disabilities so they are able to fulfil their potential.
We are a small, dynamic charity, entrepreneurial in style and collaborative in process. We are values led, passionate about our partner approach and driven by the beneficiaries of our work. We are in a great position, demonstrating consistent growth over the last 5 years and have just completed a full re-brand of the organisation. We are ready to use this new look and strong messaging to grow our supporter base and increase our income.
We are looking for a passionate, dynamic and motivated individual to come and join us to lead our philanthropy and partnerships fundraising activities; cultivating corporate and major donor giving, building new partnerships and devising new creative strategies for engagement.
We understand the need for time to see a return on the investment in this position. That is why we have a fundraising plan in place for 2020/21, with a series of events planned that will allow us to deliver our fundraising targets and allow time to plan for the future.
You will come in to deliver our planned income activities for the first year, overseeing our existing fundraising events and partnerships. This will allow time to develop networks and opportunities before you go on to help build and deliver Able Child Africa’s long term fundraising strategy and transform our income portfolio.
You will bring your skills in relationship management from whatever experience you have acquired and use it to build a sustainable income stream for a values driven organisation. You might have 3-5 years’ experience of securing unrestricted income from high net worth individuals or corporate partners. Equally, you might have transferable skills and experience from other roles in other sectors. Or you may also be ready to step up from your current role and keen to show us you are ready for the challenge.
Working closely with our small team (one direct line management report), you will have the opportunity to be involved in the running of a small organisation, reporting directly to the CEO and inputting into the Resources Sub-Committee of our Board. This is a great opportunity to take on leadership responsibilities, contributing to the strategic direction of an organisation.
This is a great place to work. We work hard for what we believe in, but create an enjoyable, flexible and accessible working environment to ensure you enjoy what you do and have a good work-life balance, caring about your mental health. So if this sounds like something you are interested in, then come and join us on our journey.
Salary: £37,000 to £40,000
Pension: Matching contribution to your private pension up to 5% of gross salary
Leave: 25 days annual leave per year (plus 3 days off between Christmas and New Year)
