We are a small organisation with a big ambition and we urgently need a fundraising strategy so that we can continue to support our pilot in 10 schools, and scale up so every child in Malawi benefits from our successful literacy model.
The Fundraising Strategy Manager will be focused on results and drive the fundraising strategy as a first step, and potentially stay on and help implement the fundraising strategy alongside an emerging programme strategy. so this could be a short term assignment or it could become a longer term one depending on whether you would like to help implement the strategy. You will need to develop a capacity building plan and a communications plan related to fundraising for the organisation. You will be working with six to seven key organisation roles to enable wider ownership and implementation of the strategy.
The Fundraising Strategy Manager will be a resilient, self-starter with confidence in their skills and expertise and able to work within the culture of the organisation. You will have skills and experience in:
Funds raised impact directly on literacy, education and life outcomes of over 4000 children in 10 government primary schools in Malawi currently (schools are suspended temporarily due to covid19) and with each new academic year, we want to support the new school entrants with new literacy specialists. These schools act as demonstrations in the primary education sector, and enable us to maintain and grow our engagement with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology for potential scale up to benefit all children in Malawi in the 5,700 government primary schools.
We believe you will enjoy working with the dedicated team. You will enjoy the challenge of working with a small organisation and developing the first comprehensive fundraising strategy. The work is professionally rewarding and personally fulfilling impacting directly on thousands of children's literacy levels, with potential to make a real difference to children's life outcomes. The short term opportunity could become a long term one if the applicant is interested to help implement the strategy.
