SOS Children’s Villages UK is part of a global federation and work across 136 countries and territories worldwide to ensure that children grow up in a stable environment and feel loved, safe and supported. By supporting them to grow into resilient and independent adults who can contribute to their communities, we are helping to bring about positive and lasting change.

  • At least 2 years’ experience in grant fundraising
  • A high level of attention to detail
  • A passion, flair and creativity for developing proposals
  • Excellent interpersonal skills and enjoys collaborating with team members
