Fundraising Officer

Africa Inland Mission International

We are looking to add an enthusiastic fundraiser (full time, but part time options considered) to our Communications and Fundraising Team. Someone who is passionate about raising funds to see the Great Commission fulfilled, and who understands the vital importance of prayer and financial support in mission. This is a new role, building on the work carried out across the staff team since 2019 as we seek to implement our fundraising strategy.

Taking primary responsibility for connecting with existing donors, this person will be a good listener, ready to engage well with our supporters and develop relationships. They will also take an active role in generating ideas to creatively reach new audiences, utilising our active social media platforms and interactive website.

As well as communicating with our supporter database, they will build on existing funding from trusts. As they seek to develop more relationships with trusts and foundations, they will have responsibility for researching appropriate opportunities and completing trust applications. 

With scope to develop and shape the role, intially the Fundraising Officer will work alongside the Communications Director to formulate reports for the Leadership Team and the Board of Trustees. Increasingly the Fundraising Officer will take greater responsibility for these reports as well as for coordinating and monitoring fundraising activity across the staff team. As such they will need to be able to encourage and ethuse others about fundraising tasks and communicate financial needs clearly and persuasively. 

Please mention OSCAR when responding.
