Who We Are
Girl Effect builds youth brands and mobile platforms to empower girls to change their lives
We’re a creative non-profit empowering girls to change their lives. Started by the Nike Foundation, we are experts in media, mobile, brand and international development: a unique mix of skills that we use to solve global problems in a different way.
We work across the world in the places where girls are marginalised and vulnerable. We create for young people in ways they love and interact with. And it's all delivered through the media and mobile tech they use every day – from apps that build skills, to TV dramas that explore vital issues, to magazines written by girls.
Context of Role
As Girl Effect increases the scale of its reach and impact, we also aim to grow our investment and funding further. The Development team is responsible for Girl Effect's fundraising and partner relations, working closely with Girl Effect's CEO to manage our income strategy and fundraising.
Girl Effect is unique in the sector and has a blended funding model that goes beyond charitable revenue. You should have experience of high-level fundraising from a mix of bilateral donors and large foundations. As part of your role, you will secure, develop and manage a portfolio of key supporter relationships.
Critical to your success will be your ability to communicate and influence through compelling, sophisticated and technically excellent proposals, business cases and funding bids. You will have the credibility to grow Girl Effect’s network while also helping to establish a culture of fundraising within the organisation. In addition to communication and relationship skills, an ability to work in an international, diverse and fast-paced organisation is crucial.
What You’ll Do
Relationship building and management – internal and external
Strategy, planning and reporting

You’ll learn and grow in an environment that will challenge you to think and work with a fresh perspective. At Girl Effect, you can expect to work somewhere where you will be stretched and developed in your role, a place where you can build your career and work with talented, engaged people committed to our cause to create a lasting impact.
