Job description

When there is an outbreak of war or violence, women suffer most – they experience trauma, sexual violence and the death of loved ones. After the conflict is over, the world’s attention moves on, but these same women are left to rebuild their families and communities.  Women for Women International supports women who live in some of the world’s most dangerous places. Women enrol on our year-long training programme, where they learn how to earn and save money, improve their family’s health and make their voices heard at home and in their community.  Since 1993, we’ve helped over 500,000 women survivors of war in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kosovo, Iraq, Nigeria, Rwanda and South Sudan.  With over 40 brutal armed conflicts across the globe, there’s never been a greater need for the work of Women for Women International to support women survivors of war.  

We are seeking a Manager, Global Foundation and Corporate Partnerships

to join the Global Program Unit, based out of our London office to manage our growing portfolio of restricted grants. This is a temporary/fixed term role, for Maternity Cover.

The Manager, Global Foundation and Corporate Partnerships will be an important member of the Global Business Development team, managing and executing on our global business development strategies related to donor and prospect relationship building and cultivation. The Global Business Development team sits within the Global Programs Unit, which also includes sub-teams focused on programme design, monitoring and evaluation, country office support, and grants management. This position will work and coordinate especially closely with the grants management team to ensure proper stewardship of current foundation and corporate donors, including that they are primed well for renewal asks.

Are you passionate about helping women achieve their potential?  Do you thrive in a busy environment, can stay calm under pressure, enjoy working on multiple projects, and feel motivated by taking on new challenges? If you answered yes to all of these questions, then this role might be for you!
