Saferworld works across Asia, Africa and the Middle East to tackle the diverse factors that drive violent conflict, injustice and insecurity. We support people affected by conflict to exercise their rights and influence policies and practices that impact on their security so that they can live with dignity and free from fear.
The Strategic Funding Partnerships Manager is a new role which will work across the entire organisation to consolidate, keep abreast of, and deepen our relationships with key institutional and foundation donors.
We are looking for an entrepreneurial candidate who can help us take our donor relationships to another level – attracting more strategic, high value and ideally flexible funding partnerships at the organisational and/or programmatic levels.
The ideal candidate will have a track record of cross-organisational working (spanning our London, country programme and affiliate offices in Washington, Brussels and Beijing) and an ability to leverage support from colleagues at all levels to take a co-ordinated approach to strengthening engagement with our key donors.
This is an exciting time for someone with drive and determination to contribute to Saferworld’s efforts to build a sustainable funding base whilst opening up opportunities for strategic donor engagement and influencing.
