Job description

We are seeking an experienced fundraiser to cultivate and develop relationships with and secure funds from existing and new Trusts and Foundations and from corporate partners in order to support Carers Worldwide’s key strategic priorities and continue to grow income. The successful candidate will engage with senior leadership, internal and external stakeholders, contribute to expanding the organisation’s growth and be a key player in our small but high achieving and collaborative team.

Purpose:

  1. To manage the complete cycle of fundraising activities in relation to Trusts and Foundations and corporate partners and to support the work of other team members in relation to institutional, major, community and individual donors, in order that the organisation can secure funds from a range of diverse sources. 
  2. To provide the senior management of the organisation and other staff members with appropriate and timely information in order to meet monitoring, reporting and compliance duties to donors and the Trustee Board. 

Responsibilities:

1. Strategic 

  • Support Carers Worldwide management and Board to implement the organisation’s Strategic Plan and 10 year vision, in order to ensure Carers Worldwide’s strategic goals are achieved. 
  • Support the preparation and implementation of the organisation’s fundraising strategy.
  • Work closely with the newly formed Fundraising Committee comprised of Trustees, staff and co-opted members to drive forward new income generation initiatives.

2. Fundraising 

  • Research and profile new fundraising prospects, in conjunction with the senior management team, using a variety of tools including online databases, specialist publications and personal knowledge/networks, and make recommendations for action. 
  • Initiate contact/build relationships with Trusts and Foundations new to us, and prepare and submit applications for grant funding.
  •  Build on relationships with existing Trusts and Foundations, explore opportunities to scale-up existing support and prepare and submit applications.
  • Prepare reports as necessary for active grants and submit documentation to evidence outcomes and impact.
  • Identify potential corporate partnerships, both new and from within our current networks, to cultivate and develop into financial supporters and charity of the year partnerships.
  • Create clear cultivation and stewardship plans for corporate supporters to promote and secure successful ongoing engagement, ensuring partnerships are values led and support the goals of the businesses and of Carers Worldwide.
  • Work closely with other staff to develop strategies to ensure any match funding is secured. 
  • Liaise with senior management and partner organisation staff to ensure information required for funding applications and donor reports is prepared and submitted in a full, accurate and timely manner.
  • Contribute to reporting to Trustees, both written and verbal.
  • Contribute to, monitor and report on the organisation’s annual income targets, with particular responsibility for the Trusts and Foundations and the corporate partners income streams.
  • Work with the wider team to assist with other aspects of fundraising (eg. institutional funders, major donors, community events, individual donors, applications for awards, stakeholder events).
  • Recruit and manage volunteers to support with specific aspects of the role.

3. Administration 

  • Maintain good donor records and pipelines, providing accurate and relevant information with regard to income secured, applications submitted and any other relevant donor information. 
  • Monitor all fundraising activities to allow for evaluation and future planning.
  • When funds allow, set up and maintain a funder database.

Carers Worldwide is a small team, and staff work closely together to ensure we achieve our strategic goals and achieve a better world for carers. It is therefore essential that staff are team players, able to respond flexibly to changes in the requirements of their post from time to time.

About Us

Carers Worldwide is the only organisation exclusively highlighting and tackling the issues facing unpaid family carers in low and middle income countries. This neglected group of individuals, caring for family members who are disabled, sick or elderly, are at high risk of social stigma, isolation, ill health and poverty. Carers Worldwide promotes their inclusion and raises their voices through a combination of policy change and direct work. We partner with in-country NGOs to facilitate carer-specific services: access to support groups, respite, healthcare and counselling, along with support for livelihood activities that can co-exist with caring. We ensure sustainable change by promoting the work of carers associations and partner with governments, as well as national and international NGOs to bring about changes in policy and practice for carers.

Established in 2012, we have transformed directly the lives of over 79,000 carers and family members through our partnerships with local organisations in India, Nepal and Bangladesh. In addition, legislative changes implemented as the result of our advocacy work are improving the lives of hundreds of thousands of carers.

Now is an exciting time to be joining the Carers Worldwide team. We are embarking on a new 10 year vision which will see us amplify our reach and diversify our ways of working and raising funds, in order to reach our ambitious target of impacting the lives of 10 million carers by 2030. 2022 is also our 10thanniversary and we have an action packed timetable of events and activities planned to celebrate our achievements and to bring on board new supporters for the next phase of our journey.

Start Date:10th December onwards 

Location: Home based 

Terms of Appointment:

  • £27,000 - £30,000 depending on experience 
  • Full time: 35 hours per week 
  • Permanent contract (3 month probation period)
  • 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays 
  • Pension with 8% employer contribution (following probation period) 
  • Travel within the UK required, especially London, and potential for international travel to our countries of operation
