Plan International UK strives to advance children’s rights and equality for girls all over the world. Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children. We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 75 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.

Plan International UK’s Philanthropic Partnerships team is specifically responsible for all trust, foundation and major donor relationships and income. It is an exciting and innovative team, having increased annual revenue from £660k in 2005 to over £3m in 2016. We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Major Donor Officer to take on a new challenge in a fast-paced, growing team.

You will contribute to sustaining and increasing income from individuals, independently managing a portfolio of existing donors delivering excellent account management and stewardship. A significant part of your role will focus on identifying, researching and engaging new prospects. Overall, you will be working to a six-figure income target. You will also be responsible for delivering a range of cultivation and stewardship events.

The successful candidate will have face-to-face major donor experience in addition to a proven track record of meeting financial targets and soliciting five-figure gifts from existing donors and prospects. Experience of working to conflicting deadlines with a diverse range of donors and staff particularly within fundraising is essential. You will also have experience of monitoring budgets and organising and supporting events.

The deadline for applications is 9:00am on Monday 23 January 2017.

Interviews will take place on Monday 30 and Tuesday 31 January 2017.
