Are you a dynamic, focused and inspiring fundraising leader who could lead a small, motivated team to deliver a step-change in voluntary income to deliver life-saving aid? Can you develop transformational strategic partnerships with philanthropists, private trusts and foundations and corporates to ensure everyone gets the healthcare they need when disasters hit?

A career-defining opportunity to lead the fundraising and communications function of a fast-growing charity delivering frontline medical aid. We are looking for a passionate and skilled individual to drive our voluntary income growth to deliver life-saving emergency healthcare to the world’s most vulnerable people.

UK-Med has an ambitious five-year strategy (you can view it here) and a goal to generate £1 million per year from voluntary sources by 2026 to fund emergency responses and training for health staff. UK-Med’s income is currently primarily statutory and the charity is relatively new to fundraising, however voluntary income has quadrupled year on year for the last three years. Earlier this year the board invested in the team to support the delivery of the 2021-2026 Fundraising and Communications strategy. The new Fundraising and Communications Director will build on the promising foundations laid to deliver an exciting chapter in the charity’s development.

You will be building on significant work already undertaken in all of these areas. This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious, determined and passionate individual to make a real difference to people who have their lives impacted by disease outbreaks, disasters and war. Experience in the humanitarian or international development sector is desirable, however a keen interest in global affairs and a commitment to UK-Med’s humanitarian mandate are essential.
