We are a member of a global network but our focus is Africa.

Opportunity International UK is seeking an experienced philanthropy professional with a passion for excellence and achieving change for people living in poverty.

The Head of Philanthropy will:

  • Develop and direct a fundraising strategy and a case for support
  • Develop and nurture relationships with high-net-worth individuals
  • Manage the Philanthropy team, which includes the Communications Manager
  • Influence Opportunity International UK’s strategic direction, planning and decision making as a member of the Senior Management Team

  • Senior Management and team leadership experience
  • Proven experience with and understanding of the motivation of high-net-worth individuals
