Malaria No More UK:  We have an ambitious mission to end the oldest killer disease in human history.  We work with governments, private sector partners and the public to galvanise the political will and financial commitment required to accelerate innovation, access and action to end this devastating disease once and for all.  We are determined to be the generation to end malaria and believe this goal is within our reach.

Why we need you:  We need your help to assist in raising the funds that allow Malaria No More UK to deliver its vital work - helping accelerate the end of the world’s oldest and deadliest disease. We’re looking to find new partners to work with and receive funding from as we seek to grow our organisation and the impact we can have.

If you’re looking for a chance to kick-start your career in the charity sector whilst contributing to an ambitious, passionate organisation with a bold mission that gets things done, then this opportunity is for you.  You will be working directly with our small Philanthropy and Partnerships team of five, undertaking a varied range of tasks including research, writing, communicating with supporters, producing materials and providing administrative support where needed.    

Key Duties and Responsibilities

These will vary according to the needs of the team but are likely to include:

  • Researching potential partners, supporters and opportunities using information gathered through desk based research and telephone enquiries.
  • Creating and updating fundraising materials and supporting in the production of proposals and partnership pitches.
  • Helping to prepare reports for funders and partners.
  • Supporting the team in building and tracking progress of a pipeline of funding approaches.
  • Offering general administrative support to the Philanthropy and Partnerships team, including data entry and helping with correspondence.

What type of person will you be?

  • Able to hit the ground running and work independently whilst meeting a brief.
  • Well organised and reliable with a willingness to “muck-in”.
  • Capacity to deal with sometimes unstructured and unpredictable environments.
  • Enthusiastic about our mission and about your future in fundraising.
  • A lived malaria experience is a plus

What skills will you have?

  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills; being able to articulate clearly on the phone and face to face as well as in writing. 
  • You will enjoy and have experience with conducting quality research using a range of different sources of information and thinking laterally about possible opportunities for Malaria No More UK.
  • You must know how to use Microsoft Office programmes, in particular Word and Excel.  PowerPoint would also be a particular advantage.
  • You will be comfortable paying close attention to detail and will have accurate data entry skills – experience using a contact database (particularly Salesforce) would be of benefit although training will be provided.
  • Some experience of working in an office environment would be helpful.

What you can gain from the role:

  • You will gain an insight into the work of an ambitious, high impact global health advocacy organisation, and specific experience in charity fundraising and partnerships with a focus on institutional funding and corporate partnerships
  • A chance to develop your research, writing and workplace skills including use of Salesforce.
  • The opportunity to play a role in the global movement to help end malaria deaths.
