This role suits an ambitious self-starter with excellent writing and research skills with some experience in grant or major donor fundraising and an interest in developing their skills in international development. You will be a team player, capable of prioritising and balancing your own workload, while supporting the team in ensuring key deadlines are being met.

We will be unable to consider applications that do not have a cover letter.
