Head of Fundraising and Communications
Dig Deep

Job Description

Dig Deep is unlocking opportunity for Kenya's poorest residents, county by county, by ensuring everyone has clean water, safe toilets and hygiene - forever.

Where we work, 8 out of every 10 people lack access to clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene. Most residents live in rural communities and spend hours every day walking to collect dirty water or find a safe place to relieve themselves. Dirty water and poor hygiene spread diseases meaning even more time is lost to sickness that could have been used to learn and earn. By reducing the time lost to water collection and preventable disease we remove these barriers, allowing people to lift themselves out of poverty. 

The successful candidate will work to make the achievement of this mission possible by leading the growth and diversification of the charity’s income streams. The role will require you to bridge the gap between being hands-on and operating at a strategic level. You will play a critical role in leading the long-term strategic direction of the charity and will line manage, mentor and coach the fundraising and communications team. At the same time, you will be hands-on securing new business from corporate supporters and major givers. The outcome of your work will be the unlocking of opportunity for hundreds of thousands of people in the communities we partner with in Kenya.
