Job description
This organisation supports anonymous recruitment. That means hiding your personal identifying information, removing bias from the hiring process.

Action Against Hunger is a global humanitarian organisation that takes decisive action against the causes and effects of  hunger. We save the lives of malnourished children. We ensure everyone can access clean water, food, training and healthcare. We enable entire communities to be free  from hunger. 

Our Fundraising and Communications team is at the start of a new strategic cycle and seeking to grow income. Support from trusts and foundations has played a key part in our growth to date, with income increasing by 150% over the past 4 years.  We’re therefore looking for a dynamic and skilled relationship-builder to help us build on our current success. This role has been created due to growth in the team – so it is an exciting opportunity to join a successful, yet ambitious team and really make your mark in a new role – building on existing relationships and creating new opportunities.  

The successful candidate will work in partnership with the Head of Philanthropy and existing Trusts & Foundations Manager to shape and deliver our Trusts and Foundations strategy, with a specific focus on new business. You will be responsible for managing a small  portfolio of warm prospective trust supporters, whilst proactively cultivating and approaching new, high-level trust prospects.  If you love building relationships, thinking creatively and strategically, and are self-motivated and proactive, this is a role in which you will thrive. You’ll need to be a confident communicator, able to build relationships with a range of stakeholders, especially at a senior level. We are looking for someone with a track record of securing large, multi-year partnerships with trusts and foundations or high value donors, preferably with experience of the entire cultivation cycle. As well as developing external relationships, we’re looking for a solution-orientated team player who is able to work effectively across internal functions and with colleagues based around the globe. 

Whilst this position is advertised as full time and based in our London office, for exceptional candidates we are willing to consider flexible working arrangements including home working and/or part-time hours.

Closing date: 9 am, Wednesday 8 December 2021. Interview date: Tuesday 14/15 December 2021.
