Job description

Prospectus is excited to be supporting Start Network to appoint a new Fundraising Officer. As the Fundraising Officer, you will work with a fantastic team fundraising from large trusts and foundations and institutional funders.

This position is a 12-month contract with possible extension and can be offered at 5 or 4 days per week. Start Network employees are hybrid working between Holborn and home.

Start Network is tackling what they believe are the biggest systemic problems that the humanitarian sector faces. Problems including slow and reactive funding, centralised decision-making, and an aversion to change, which mean that people affected by crises around the world do not receive the best help fast enough, leading to needless suffering.

You will support donor engagement activities across Start Network's programmes, working with colleagues across the organisation to identify donor prospects, produce compelling presentations, draft concept notes and funding proposals aligned to donor priorities, support engagement of existing donors, coordinate events, and improve and implement grant administration processes.

To be successful, you need to have experience of working in the humanitarian or development sectors, with an understanding of international funding. You need some experience of trusts, foundations or institutional donors and be a strong communicator and relationship builder.

As a specialist Recruitment Practice, we are committed to building inclusive and diverse organisations, and welcome applications from all sections of the community. We invest in your journey as a candidate and are committed to supporting you in your application.

In order to apply please submit your CV in the first instance and begin to prepare your supporting statement. Should your experience be suitable, we will send you the full job description and will arrange for a call and/or meeting to brief you on the role.
