We are seeking an exceptional person to support the work of Christian Aid (CA), its international partners and alliances, by supporting strategic fundraising to maximise income from existing and new donors; securing programme funding from institutional donors and large foundations and developing CA staff and partner capacity in this area. The prospective post holder will focus on CA’s work in Africa where CA has a large, diverse and growing programme portfolio.

A highly organised approach and excellent team working is required, as well as good attention to detail. You should be in sympathy with Christian Aid’s aim of empowering people to respond to the scandal of poverty through prayer, giving and action.
We value the contribution each and every one of our people makes to the success of our organisation. That’s why you can expect a wide range of rewards and benefits, including a generous holiday allowance, a season ticket loan, and flexibility that will ensure you enjoy a good work/life balance.
