About Malaria No More UK
Malaria has been described as the oldest killer disease in history; even now, despite significant progress, this preventable, curable disease claims the life of a child every two minutes. Malaria No More UK (MNMUK) is part of a global movement that is determined to make this the generation to end malaria. To realise this vision, MNMUK is mobilising governments, influencers, businesses and the public, inspiring them to commit funds, energy and resources to end the suffering and death caused by malaria and wipe out the disease for good.
Malaria No More UK is seeking an ambitious fundraiser to assist our busy Philanthropy and Partnerships team and help engage supporters in our mission to achieve a malaria-free world. You will already have had some experience of charity fundraising either in a paid or voluntary capacity and will be excited by this opportunity to play an invaluable supporting role at the heart of our fundraising effort, while also taking responsibility for managing relationships with key groups of supporters. Your organisation skills and attention to detail will help keep our busy team running smoothly, while your enthusiasm for being part of a mission to end a global killer disease will be clear from the compelling donor communications you will create and deliver, inspiring support for our work.
