About Initiative Earth
Initiative Earth is a newly formed Charity, with a mission to enable people worldwide to restore ecosystems and revitalise communities.
We are focused on the development of essential online learning resources and courses; the continuation of our public-facing EcoResolution campaign and also our global ChangeMaker Network (in a nutshell!).
Our first campaign, EcoResolution, was set up in 2018 with Cara Delevingne in response to the powerlessness people feel in the face of ecological breakdown and political inaction. This social media campaign has now expanded into a global initiative that combines the power of technology and storytelling, aiming to empower individuals to take decisive action in the face of environmental and social justice issues.
Based on the experience and insight gathered through EcoResolution, we established the charity Initiative Earth in 2020. Our aim is to make accessible high-quality courses that enable practical and 'on-the-ground' ecosystem restoration.
Our experience spans the fields of alternative education, technology, systems change and environmental regeneration. Our extensive networks place us in a privileged position to access diverse groups and communities across the worlds of grassroots movements, farming, business, culture and more.
Initiative Earth is an equal opportunities employer, dedicated to creating teams of individuals with diverse experiences and knowledge. As an organisation we work on a trust and purpose driven basis, committed to a self-management ecologically-minded framework and supportive working practices.

About the role
We are looking for a part-time fundraiser to join our team to creatively and resourcefully develop income streams support our exciting upcoming work. This role will also include some financial planning and forecasting elements. Initiative Earth is a brand new Charity launching it's core work this year, so this is a really exciting time to join our small dynamic team.
We are looking for someone who can head up the business-planning and income generating elements of our work, with particular focus on our 2021 strategy for the development of online courses. We have secured core cost (base) funding for 3 years, so this role will be an exciting opportunity for someone who is interested in diversifying income streams, developing sustainable and regenerative financial models, working with networks, partners and new audiences to develop long-term independent funding.
We are looking for someone who can think creatively and think big to support fundraising for what we believe to be essential platforms and services, supporting people to mobilise our vision of resilient communities and thriving ecosystems. We are a small self-directed team and we are looking for someone who can take initiative, input creatively and adapt and respond to our organisation's needs and vision.
