Donor Relations Manager - Fundraising
SCI Foundation

Job Description

We are looking for an exceptional person to join our friendly and dynamic team as a Donor Relations Manager to support the SCI Foundation in its next phase and fulfil its exciting new strategy.

Job title: Donor Relations Manager
Salary:  £31,770 to £34,200
Location: Lambeth, London
Hours: Full time

Who we are

Our vision is a world free of preventable disease, in which everyone everywhere can reach their full potential. We were founded in 2002 with a £20m grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and started life at Imperial College London as the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative. Consistently ranked globally as one of the most cost-effective non-profit initiatives, in 2010 we received significant funding from the UK Department of International Development which has since been extended until 2022.

This year we became an independent organisation, and the SCI Foundation now works across multiple sectors in several countries in Sub-Saharan Africa to deliver effective and robust health programmes that have a lasting impact.

What we do

Working in partnership with Governments, the SCI Foundation supports and facilitates public health programmes that reduce the impact of preventable diseases like parasitic worm infections.

We provide technical and financial support to Ministries of Health, in line with their own strategies and plans, to enhance sustainability and strengthen health systems within countries affected by these diseases.

To date, our team have supported 60% of all global schistosomiasis treatments and we are broadening our reach to coordinate with health programmes for other preventable diseases, as well as supporting  disease prevention measures such as water, sanitation and hygiene and the management of the impacts of these diseases on individuals.

Who we are looking for

You will have demonstrated experience of working with CRMS or donor management services and comfortable with analysing and reporting on donor data. You will have a sound knowledge of statutory legislations around fundraising.  You will be ambitious and have a passion for fundraising and building good relationships with existing investors and donors, whilst responding to their requests in a timely manner.

Reporting to the Grants, Reporting and Contracting Manager you will support the team with their fundraising goals and effectively support the SCI Foundation in the delivery of our mission.

What it’s like to work at the SCI Foundation

We’re a team of people passionate about creating a world free of preventable disease. Everyone that works at the SCI Foundation, as well as our partners and supporters, shares these same values and beliefs:

  • Equality: We are a small and dynamic team in which every staff member’s contribution is crucial and equally valued
  • Inclusion: We are working towards a fairer world where no-one is left behind
  • Transparency: We believe that openness and transparency create trust and a culture of continuous improvement.

Day-to-day life at the SCI Foundation is fast paced but fun. We place great importance and value on working respectfully within the team and in partnership with our partners globally. Whilst many of us travel abroad frequently, we regularly get together, whether to socialise in support of healthy working relationships, or more formally to benefit from one another’s skills, knowledge and experience.

Closing date: Saturday 7th December 2019
