Founded in 2004, Sabre Education is a leading and award-winning early childhood education international NGO. We work in close partnership with the Government of Ghana to deliver universal access to quality pre-primary education and our aim is to give every child the best possible start through quality early years education.
Kindergarten education, for children aged four and five, was introduced in Ghana nationally in 2007. Whilst a great achievement, equivalent gains have not been made in the quality of education, meaning young children are still experiencing poor learning outcomes at a critical stage of their development.
Our mission is to support Ghana in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4.2 – universal access to quality early childhood education. In partnership with the Ghanaian Government and two other INGOs, we are on the cusp of implementing a programme to roll out our teacher training on a national scale. To support this, we are recruiting a Senior Institutional and Trusts Manager to work closely with our Director of Fundraising and Communications in the delivery of our fundraising strategy, building long-term relationships with institutional and trust funders and inspiring them to support our work.
We are seeking an experienced institutional fundraiser, ideally with experience in trust fundraising and a passion for the power of education, to join our team and develop our institutional and larger trust fundraising income. You will have demonstrable experience and success in securing funding from institutional funders including bilateral and multilateral. Experience in partnership working with other INGOs would be beneficial, although not essential. Line management experience is also desirable, as this role will manage a small team.
We offer a supportive and collaborative team culture. The role is completely home-based, with the cost of occasional travel to team and donor meetings covered. This role has a lot of responsibility and an opportunity to experience new things. We hope you’re excited by that.
We plan to interview on 12th December, so if you are interested please contact our recruitment partners at Peridot Partners to discuss this role in detail.

Myeloma UK is the only organisation in the UK dealing exclusively with the incurable blood cancer myeloma and related conditions. We are committed to bringing together the best and brightest people to help us ensure that every patient has an empowered present and a hopeful future.
Our ultimate goal is to find a cure and make myeloma history. Until then, our mission is to help every patient live well with myeloma for as long as possible. We are committed to diagnosing myeloma earlier, discovering and sharing knowledge, transforming the patient experience and influencing positive change in care.
About the role
This is a new role within the Philanthropy and Strategic Partnerships team responsible for developing and leading our major donor programme. Myeloma UK is embarking on an ambitious five-year income generation strategy, which aims to increase income from £5m to £10m by 2028. This position will play a critical role, working alongside the Head of Philanthropy and Strategic Partnerships to double the income we raise from major donors and family trusts by securing 5-6 figure grants for a range of innovative and life changing programmes – including patient and family support, research and advocacy. The Philanthropy Manager is also responsible for managing and supporting the Philanthropy Officer in securing mid to high level donations from individuals.
The major donor programme at Myeloma UK is established - we have a strong community of existing high-level supporters and have identified significant potential donors within our community - but these opportunities have not been fully leveraged in the past. Building on this foundation, and a major fundraising Gala planned for Spring 2024, there is a significant opportunity to transform this area of fundraising and this role will be instrumental in delivering a step change in our approach. The role requires outstanding relationship building skills, and the ability to work with high-net-worth individuals, to build credibility and trust and inspire them to support Myeloma UK.
You will be an experienced major donor fundraiser with the ability to secure 5-6 figure gifts and lead others to do the same. You will be a strategic thinker, who is ready to lead and implement our major donor strategy alongside the Head of Philanthropy and Strategic Partnerships.
We need someone with exceptional relationship management skills with the ability to nurture high value relationships and also work closely with senior colleagues, Trustees and other volunteers to build deep and long-lasting donor relationships. It will be crucial to work closely with colleagues across the charity to identify fundraising priorities, develop fundraising propositions and involve them in the cultivation and stewardship of key relationships.
You will be a skilled communicator and negotiator with the ability to communicate complex scientific information in an engaging way. We need someone who can build relationships from scratch, uncover donor motivations and convey the importance of Myeloma UK’s work to inspire support.

In this newly created position, the postholder will be responsible for driving new business and nurturing partnerships particularly within the financial services sector whilst influencing key audiences and stakeholders to help grow and diversify SEA’s income.
At Surviving Economic Abuse (SEA), the team tackles one of society’s biggest issues. One in six women reports that a former or current partner has controlled or is controlling their economic resources – money and the things it can buy such as food, clothing, transportation, and housing. Through economic control, abusers limit women’s freedoms, they steal their futures, and, in far too many cases, they take their lives. Yet too few people are aware of economic abuse – even those who experience it.
