Reprieve is a UK charity founded in 1999. Reprieve uses strategic interventions to end the use of the death penalty globally, and to end extreme human rights abuses carried out in the name of “counterterrorism” or “national security”.
Reprieve works with the most disenfranchised people in society, as it is in their cases that human rights are most swiftly jettisoned and the rule of law is cast aside. Thus, Reprieve promotes and protects the rights of those facing the death penalty and those who are the victims of extreme human rights abuses carried out in the name of “counterterrorism” or “national security”, with a focus on arbitrary detention, torture, and extrajudicial executions.
Due to limited capacity and plentiful opportunities, we are looking for an experienced Trust and Foundation fundraiser to join our team on an interim six-month basis.
This role will sit within the Development and Outreach team and will be responsible for writing high quality, engaging funder reports, applications, award nominations and communications and for helping to further develop, refine and put plans in place for a pipeline of prospective funders, with a focus on UK and US organisations.
We are looking for an experienced fundraiser with a track-record of successful applications to charitable trusts, foundations, and statutory bodies, and someone with the professionalism, energy, creativity and drive to make a success of an interim role.
The Development and Outreach Team is small so you will need to be a self-starter and comfortable getting stuck-in. But you will receive all the support you need to learn about Reprieve’s areas of work and be a member of a close-knit, supportive team.
You will be comfortable in communicating and collaborating with people across Reprieve, from caseworkers, to the finance team and operations, as well as local partners and fellows. You will be an excellent communicator with a passion for Reprieve, and the willingness to muck in on all tasks big or small in order to ensure that Reprieve is in the best position possible to keep delivering justice and saving lives.
Given current restrictions as a result of the coronavirus, we remain working from home rather than our London-office. As government advice changes, the office will reopen. We would prefer candidates who are able to work part time in our London office however, as this is a short term role, we will consider exceptional candidates who need to work entirely remotely We will continue to be guided by government advice in these uncertain times.
Applicants must have the current right to work in the UK. Reprieve is an equal opportunity employer and we particularly welcome applicants who are significantly underrepresented in our sector, such as members of the LGBTQI community, those with disabilities, and individuals from Black and minority ethnic communities.
