  • Work with an internationally recognised NGO who have the resources and professionalism to make a real and sustained difference, whilst being agile enough to take full advantage of opportunities.

  • Have the hands on, tactical capability to build robust and illustrative funding proposals on agriculture, natural resource management and market engagement coupled with a strategic, client facing
    approach that seeks to build personal relationships with donors.
  • Have the ability to build internal relationships to ensure co-operative working whilst being challenging and thorough to ensure perfection in the organisation’s handling of donor relationships.
  • Be available for regular UK and International travel to donors, country offices and programme sites.
