We are looking for a Senior Development Officer who will maintain and maximise support from our existing donors, contribute to the continued diversification of our income by effectively engaging new donors (both in the UK and internationally), work closely with ACTION partners to identify and engage new donors for the work of the Partnership and oversee the effective and efficient grant management of a wide portfolio of grants.
This is an exciting opportunity with scope for the post holder to develop and nurture a healthy pipeline of various funding streams. RESULTS UK’s income has steadily grown over the last 10 years and comes mainly from grants trusts, foundations, and allied organisations for projects across our four issue areas of work. A substantial part of RESULTS income is for projects where RESULTS works in partnership with other ACTION organisations on the UK parts of global campaigns.
The successful applicant will be responsible for maximising income from grant making institutions by researching funding opportunities and writing tailored compelling funding applications, including multi-year, multi-country funding applications to a wide range of donors. We are seeking someone with proven success in resource mobilisation from multi-lateral institutions and large trusts and foundations.
