Job description

At a pivotal moment in AfriKids’ history, join us to take our philanthropy fundraising to the next level. We have a bold strategy to reach more children than ever over the next decade and you will be integral in making it possible.

Summary of role

As Philanthropy & Partnerships New Business Manager you will be responsible for growing income from corporate partnerships and major donors through excellent new business development and fantastic donor stewardship. Reporting to the Fundraising Director, you will focus on identifying prospective individual donors and corporate partners and developing lasting relationships with them. You will also support the management of relationships with existing donors, ensuring all donors have a brilliant experience supporting AfriKids.

Joining our small but award-winning team, you will work closely with the Director of Fundraising, a Philanthropy & Partnerships New Business Manager and the team in Ghana, so strong relationship management skills will be essential.

  • You will research, develop and write high quality partnership proposals, cases for support, appeal letters, pitches and reports and submit them to prospective donors and corporate partners in a timely fashion.


  • You will prepare phased budgets and reforecasts in line with activity plans and progress to ensure the value and timing of planned restricted and unrestricted income to the organisation is accurate.
  • You will develop an excellent knowledge of AfriKids; work, liaise with colleagues to prepare and present high-quality information such as tailored presentations and proposals for the donor.
  • You will maintain an awareness of philanthropy and corporate giving trends, news, events and legislation in the UK, USA and Ghana and pick up on opportunities or topical issues that will enhance the charity.
  • You will work to an agreed individual target to deliver an agreed corporate income target annually.
