Amref Health Africa is Africa's leading health charity. Headquartered in Nairobi, we partner with communities in 35 countries to sustainably strengthen health systems and improve access to life-saving care. Our belief that health is a human right underpins everything we do. Since March 2020, we have been at the forefront of the COVID-19 response in East, West, and Southern Africa.
Amref Health Africa UK (Amref UK) is one of a dozen offices in Europe and North America that are primarily responsible for raising the organisation's profile, brokering partnerships, and mobilising funds to support our programmes in Africa.
In 2021, Amref Health Africa UK underwent a mid-strategy review (2020 - 2023), which informed an organisational restructure in 2022. As part of this restructure, there is now a team dedicated to raising programme income and managing related grants and stakeholders.
In our review we have recognised that the sector has been evolving over the years in these three main restricted income streams:
1) Trusts and Foundations
We are seeking external expertise through a consultant to support our prospecting, ensuring our resource mobilisation efforts in these three areas are strategic and fruitful given our size, capacity and area of focus.
Scope of Work
The consultant will use desk research and their own knowledge/experience of the sector to develop a clear, outcome-centred Restricted Income Action Plan for Amref Health Africa UK, structured according to the three income streams outlined above.
The Action Plan should map out the next steps Amref Health Africa UK should take to increase restricted income. We are keen to emerge from this exercise with a clear idea of the way forward, based on our existing resources, required for us to effectively raise restricted income.
The consultant will produce a series of recommendations in the form of a Restricted Income Action Plan. These will include:
• A brief analysis of Amref UK's restricted income streams to date and opportunities within the UK landscape
• Priority actions / strategies, in the short- and long-term (i.e. end 2023, the expiration of our current organisational strategy). These should address changes to our approach for raising restricted income and be structured according to the three income streams set out at the beginning of this document.
The successful applicant will have extensive experience of similar projects, specifically within the international development sector, and working with a similar-sized organisation to Amref UK. They will be particularly familiar with the UK-based donor landscape and tapped into the ongoing conversations within the sector.
The consultant is expected to provide their own IT equipment. Amref Health Africa UK will provide access to any relevant documents and facilitate relationships with key internal and external stakeholders. The consultant will work closely with a point person who will make themselves available for regular catch-ups.
Location: This piece of work can be conducted remotely. The Amref UK office in London will be available to the consultant for in-person meeting with Amref UK stakeholders.
Contract Type: Approximately 10-15 days of work, to be completed over three - four weeks.
Start Date: 25th July 2022 (negotiable but no later than 1st August 2022)
