We are looking for a Trusts and Foundations Officer to join our small and dynamic fundraising team. The postholder will lead on building our grant income from trusts and foundations, using their strong fundraising and communication skills to ensure that our world leading research team and campaigns have the resources they need to make a difference in Tibet. You will join a friendly fundraising team of four, each member working with a great deal of autonomy in their own area, but benefitting from cross-organisational ideas and support.
The core of this role is:
● Work with our campaigns & research teams to identify funding priorities.
● Build relationships with new and existing funders.
● Write and coordinate applications for funds.
● Ensure grants are managed effectively and reporting to funders is on point.
Worldwide Covid-19, Hong-Kong, and treatment of the Uyghurs has meant public and parliamentary opposition to the Chinese Communist Party has hardened, and interest in Tibet is high. The post holder will seize this momentum and build new and long lasting relationships with funders. The post holder will work closely with senior staff to help build our small but promising grant portfolio into a stable income stream from multiple sources. You will have strong administration skills, be organised, proactive, confident, and have a track record of securing grants. If this sounds like a challenge you would relish, we want to hear from you.
Tibet Watch promotes the human rights of the Tibetan people through human rights monitoring, research and international advocacy. We share an office and work as a team with our partner organisation Free Tibet. Tibet Watch’s field research team in Dharamsala, India, is our most important connection to Tibet. Our team of Tibetan researchers document and expose the ongoing human rights abuse and ensure that the world knows about China’s oppression and brutality in Tibet. Our primary means of disseminating information is through our partner organisation, Free Tibet. Our information is also used by national governments, UN bodies, NGOs, campaigning groups and international media.
Our main office is in Brixton in south London, and including the Dharamasala research team and Free Tibet, we are around 15 staff members in total. At present most staff are working from home, and we expect continuing high levels of home working in future. The minimum commitment for time in the office is one day per month. We therefore welcome applicants from across the UK.
