Job description
This organisation supports anonymous recruitment. That means hiding your personal identifying information, removing bias from the hiring process.

This is a brand new position - an exciting opportunity to make your mark on a small dynamic charity with ambitious goals.


This pivotal role will suit an experienced relational fundraiser who excels at inspiring people to catch a vision and contribute through their donations. Read about SEED’s vision, mission, and pilot community resilience model in our strategy in the attachments. As the prime driver of income generation for SEED, you will proactively secure multi-year relationships with individuals, small businesses, trusts and foundations. You will also oversee all SEED’s other fundraising and communications, including fundraising appeals like the Big Give Christmas Challenge, newsletter, social media and website.


Initially the only employee of SEED in the UK, you will report directly to a Trustee, oversee our small group of committed volunteers, and liaise closely with our delivery team in Zimbabwe. Before long, we’re sure your efforts will create the need and funding to grow the UK team. Working in a very small charity, you will enjoy a varied, interesting role with opportunities to get involved in wider organisational priorities and effect change with minimal bureaucracy.


You will work from home, even after lockdown ends (SEED doesn’t have an office), with occasional travel to meet donors or trustees. Trustees are in London / Cambridge, but video calls would be considered if the best candidate was located further away. 


We will consider 2-3 days a week, and we support flexible working, so this role could fit around other commitments.


To apply, please prepare a tailored and concise covering letter explaining what attracts you to The SEED Project in general and to this role in particular, how you fit the person specification, and why you are confident you can help us to grow our funding base.  Please submit this along with your CV.
