Job description

Prospectus is excited to be supporting FINCA International in their search for a new Director of Development to lead the growth and development of FINCA UK. FINCA's mission and vision are focused on sustainable approaches to poverty alleviation in underserved markets globally.

FINCA International is investing in the growth of FINCA UK to springboard the presence and voice in the UK and to mobilise resources among the UK and European donor community. The organisation is looking for a senior-level fundraising professional who has the growth potential to become FINCA UK's Executive Director.

This is an exciting opportunity to utilise FINCA's powerful network and outreach to deliver funds for direct programmes in 20 counties across Africa, Eurasia, Latin America and the Middle East and South Asia, and to invest in companies that deliver life-enhancing products and services in six key ways (energy, education, WASH, health, agriculture and fintech) in 31 countries.

FINCA UK is looking for an entrepreneurial Director of Development to lead a fresh, exciting and ambitious fundraising programme. The Director of Development will engage with UK and European government donors, corporate partners and high net worth individuals both through traditional giving opportunities as well as impact investing in FINCA's distinctive social enterprises. The Director of Development will work closely with FINCA International's Senior Vice President of Business Development and External Relations, and FINCA UK's engaged and active Board, and will look to build the UK team.

FINCA International sees incredible opportunity here in the UK and European funding community. They require someone entrepreneurial with a passion for alleviating poverty and an interest in emerging models of investment-based philanthropy to help them execute this. The successful candidate will be a high-achieving senior fundraising professional with the ability to build strong lasting relationships with a range of donors in an international NGO setting.

This position can be either office or home-based and the organisation offers flexible working alongside other benefits.Â

Should your experience be suitable, we will send you the full job description and will arrange for an initial call to brief you on the role.
