Women for Refugee Women (WRW) is looking for a committed Grants Fundraising Officer to join our small and passionate team and help us communicate our work effectively to trusts and foundations.
WRW is a charity that supports women seeking asylum in the UK and challenges the injustices they experience. We work at the grassroots by empowering refugee women to speak out and advocate for themselves, and through communications and campaigning work that engages the mainstream media and politicians.
This is a new role at WRW, to support the charity in sustaining and growing our income from trusts and foundations. The purpose of this role is to research funding prospects, make applications and ensure that we can meet our reporting requirements. You will need excellent attention to detail and be passionate about effectively communicating the impact of our work to current and prospective funders.
We are looking for someone with proven grant fundraising experience and strong commitment to our values of social justice, intersectional feminism and anti-racism.
