The international public health charity, SCI Foundation, which is consistently ranked globally as one of the most cost-effective non-profit initiatives, is seeking a Director of Development.

SCI Foundation’s aim is to improve the health of the poorest and most marginalized people in the world, enabling them to reach their full potential. Working in partnerships with Governments in Sub-Saharan Africa, the Foundation helps to deliver impactful public health programmes, working towards the elimination of preventable diseases such as schistosomiasis – a disease caused by parasites which affects over 250m people globally and causes an estimated 200,000 deaths a year.

The Director of Development is a brand new role within the charity with the scope to innovate the organisation’s income generation approach. Reporting to the Chief Executive, this position is a key member of the senior management team and you will be joining at an exciting time when the organisation is redefining their strategic direction and identity. This role presents an opportunity to experiment with new and innovative ways of generating income, as well as building on tried and tested fundraising techniques.

The ideal candidates will have extensive experience of income generation in charities and/or social enterprises from frontline delivery to leadership and strategy development. You will have a track record of securing multi-million gifts from a range of International Development funds, global institutions, Trusts and Foundations, and high-level donors or social investors. You will also have exceptional financial and leadership skills and enjoy and thrive on the challenge of creating a new and bespoke funding strategy to match SCI’s cause, impact and values.
