Philanthropy Operations Manager

Hope and Homes for Children is looking for a Philanthropy Operations Manager to join us and make families, never orphanages the new narrative. We are at a critical point in the development of our Philanthropy programme, with plans to launch a new major appeal in support of our new organisational strategy.

Philanthropy Operations Manager Responsibilities:

As our Philanthropy Operations Manager, you will ensure the operations of our Philanthropy programme are second to none, equipping our team of expert philanthropy fundraisers with the information, knowledge and support they need to prospect, cultivate and solicit major gifts in support of our organisational ambitions. You’ll be the beating heart of the team’s success, empowering colleagues with timely, relevant research and information to position HHC as a ‘go-to’ impact-driven organisation.

You will be joining a brave, can-do organisation, and an ambitious, collaborative and multiskilled team. You’ll take pride in managing our data and intelligence so that this information converts into exceptional experiences for our supporters.

Philanthropy Operations Manager Requirements:

We are looking for someone with proven experience in a support / executive assistant role who works proactively and is naturally collaborative. You should have exceptional communication skills, both written and verbal but also have a passion for data and be confident in using databases to extract meaningful information that will support the delivery of our fundraising strategy. You will be a creative, analytical and positive individual who will be tenacious and focused in your approach to support the Philanthropy and wider MCF Team.

To apply, upload your CV and cover note (max 500 words) indicating why you’re interested in joining us.

About Hope and Homes for Children:

Orphanages don’t protect children, they harm them. Put simply: the last thing an orphanage can provide is the first thing a child needs - someone to love them.

Science shows what we all know, that the bond between a child and their family is vital for their development. Decades of evidence proves that orphanages harm children, subjecting them to high levels of sexual and physical abuse, as well as extreme neglect.

Children always belong in families. They need protection, encouragement, play, laughter and love. They need somewhere to call home and someone to love them. You can help us make this a reality for children.

This is a deeply rewarding role and an exciting time to join us. As the world reels from the impact of Covid, there is increased risk of families experiencing the poverty, lack of support and desperation that drives children into orphanages. There is vital work to be done in ensuring this does not happen.

Location: We are all currently working at home but when we return to offices, you will be located at either our London or Salisbury office (East Clyffe, near Salisbury, SP3 4LZ), with flexibility to work from home for part of the week and will be a requirement for some travel to each office location. If you are London based, you will initially work from home until we secure a new London premises.

Salary: £30,000 to £35,000

Hours: 37.5 hours, with flexibility – we have a generous flexible and home working practices.

Final date for applications: 27 June 2021, however we will be reviewing applications as they are received, so please send us your application as soon as possible.

If you believe every child belongs in a family, join us as we consign orphanages to history
