We’re looking for a dynamic individual to work alongside our coordinator of Fundraising to assist in developing and implementing fundraising campaigns, researching and writing grant proposals, managing and organising fundraising events, liaising with current and former volunteers, and maintaining relations with donors.

You must be able to work both independently and as part of a team, think outside the box and bring fresh ideas to the role, prioritise your workload, maintain good relations with others, and work to tight deadlines.

What we offer:

  • Further your practical work experience in a friendly, welcoming, and supportive environment
  • Gain experience working in the non-profit sector and learn about key issues in international development
  • One-to-one mentoring by the Fundraising Coordinator
  • A structured personal development plan, which will be reviewed regularly throughout your placement
  • A reference upon successful completion of your placement
