Job Description

We want a world where no one dies from hunger. Life-threatening hunger is predictable, preventable and treatable. Join Action Against Hunger and together we will stop it in its tracks.

Action Against Hunger is an optimistic, inspiring place to work. We want passionate and dedicated people to help build a better world. We’re a creative team made up of people with a wide range of talents, styles and expertise. But we are united in our relentless dedication to end world hunger.  No challenge is too big. With you we can do it.  Join us.

In 2021, Action Against Hunger UK launched an ambitious new 5-year fundraising and communications strategy. Support from trusts and foundations has played a key part in our growth to date, with income increasing by 150% over the past 4 years. We’re therefore looking for a dynamic and skilled relationship-builder to drive forward and build on our current success.
The successful candidate will work in partnership with the Head of Philanthropy and existing Trusts & Foundations Manager to lead and deliver our Trusts and Foundations strategy, with a specific focus on new business. You will be responsible for managing a small portfolio of warm prospective trust supporters, whilst proactively cultivating and approaching new, high-level trust prospects.  

If you love building relationships, thinking creatively and strategically, and are self-motivated and proactive, this is a role in which you will thrive. You’ll need to be a confident communicator, able to build relationships and influence a range of stakeholders, especially at a senior level. We are looking for someone with a track record of securing large, multi-year partnerships with trusts and foundations or high value donors, preferably with experience of the entire cultivation cycle. As well as developing external relationships, we’re looking for a solution-orientated team player who is able to work effectively across internal functions and with colleagues based around the globe. 
Whilst this position is advertised as full time and based in our London office, for exceptional candidates we are willing to consider flexible working arrangements including home working, compressed hours and/or part-time hours.  

Closing date: 29/11/2023 Interview Date: 04/12/2023.
