We're looking for a Fundraising Manager to join our small UK team to help us reach out to new funders including trusts and foundations, companies and individuals. The role will focus on partnerships and will support all aspects of fundraising including community, events and individual giving.

Move The World is growing, and this new role will be dedicated to continuing this trend. It's a broad remit to maximise all the opportunities that arise - as a small international development charity, we work dynamically, adjusting to the most pressing need at any time. You'll embrace this culture and enjoy being responsive. You'll need to be passionate, personable and well organised. You'll manage your own partnerships as well as supporting existing ones. You'll take the lead on going out to seek new mid-level partnerships.

This role will be home-based, but you'll need to be able to travel to London for one - two days a month to meet with our UK team.

Plenty of experience using Excel and Microsoft Word or Google Sheets and Google Docs
