SolarAid, which aims to light up every home, school and clinic in Africa by 2030 is seeking an interim Director of Fundraising with a strong individual giving background, to manage an exciting new campaign whilst a permanent Director of Fundraising is recruited.

SolarAid’s vision is of a world where everyone has access to clean, renewable, energy. The charity was founded in 2006 to combat poverty and climate change, and through its social enterprise, SunnyMoney, provides access to solar lights in Malawi and Zambia to help catalyse solar markets with renewable light.

The role will be responsible for leading preparation work for an October launch for a new ambitious fundraising campaign End the Darkness with a campaign target of £25 million. The charity has a strong base of diverse income and supporter-focused fundraising.

The focus of this interim role will cover four main areas: 

  1. Design of SolarAid’s predictive fundraising model: taking fundraising plans for the £25 million target and plotting these in a working predictive fundraising model for the five year journey to meet this target. You will install the next level of performance tracking and measurement for fundraising, helping the charity identify the key indicators (beyond income) and predictive KPIs they will use to measure fundraising success. 
  2. Design tests to grow the charity’s supporter base with the new campaign and surrounding PR providing a fantastic opportunity to test supporter acquisition strategies which could be employed to grow the charity’s supporter base in the future. 
  3. Support the public appeal development.
  4. Handover to the full-time Director of Fundraising, providing insight and support as the charity recruits a full time member of staff, as well as supporting the Supporter Engagement Manager, Supporter Experience Administrator and engaging with the Communications team.

The above responsibilities will largely be around the individual giving space. 

CLOSING DATE: Rolling recruitment - will close as soon as a suitable candidate is found.
