Across the globe, an estimated eight million children live in institutions and orphanages. At least 80% are not orphans but are separated from families. They are deprived of the close, loving adult engagement a family provides; their physical, intellectual and emotional development is harmed; and they are exposed to significant risk of abuse and neglect. These are some of the world’s most disadvantaged children.
At Lumos, an international NGO founded by J.K. Rowling, and the UK 2015 Charity of the Year, we believe this is a solvable problem. We have developed a model of ‘deinstitutionalisation’ to support countries to reform child care and protection systems based on institutions and replace them with health, education and social care services which keep families together in the community.
As Lumos expands globally we need a range of skilled professionals to work in our diverse and international team to champion the rights of all children to grow up within a loving family. We are now looking for a motivated individual to play a key role in Lumos’ international fundraising team:
Fundraising Operations Officer
£28,000-£30,000 per annum
In this key and varied role, you will support the team to grow and manage our income effectively, ensuring the smooth running and development of all systems that support fundraising to enable Lumos to maintain strong working relationships with its funders.
You will be adding value to Lumos reporting, acting as the team’s primary contact with the finance team and ensure that donors receive timely and up to date information about Lumos’ work.
This is a developing role and to be successful, you will have excellent attention to detail and be bright, enthusiastic and results-driven. You will be able to present data in a clear and compelling way and have strong data management and analysis skills with experience of managing fundraising databases.
