Are you an ambitious, experienced institutional fundraiser who wants to play an instrumental role in fighting UK and global corruption – with a particular focus on the health and defence and security sectors? If so, this new position at Transparency International UK (TI-UK) could be perfect for you.
Transparency International -UK is the country’s leading anti-corruption non-governmental organisation, and is part of a global coalition sharing one vision: a world in which government, business, civil society and the daily lives of people are free of corruption.
Our fight against corruption depends on donor support – with more than half of TI-UK’s funding coming from institutions like DFID and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. We are looking for an exceptional fundraiser with experience of fundraising for international sectoral programmes who can lead the development of our approach to institutions such as these, securing their ongoing engagement and vital financial support.
Our newly formed Fundraising and Communications team is energetic and ambitious. We have a big task ahead of us to establish a more strategic approach to our fundraising – within the UK and internationally – but we have strong hands-on support from our trustees, leadership team and some of our closest donors. We are collaborative, value one another’s expertise, encourage innovative thinking and want to ensure that working here is enjoyable and rewarding.
