Imagine starting a job with a bold new brand, a bold new fundraising strategy, and a courageous bunch of senior managers and trustees backing you from day one. This is exactly it. This is a uniquely exciting time to join the International HIV/AIDS Alliance. We are about to launch a new brand in February and are building a brand new fundraising team with masses of ambition and vision.  We are seeking an experienced fundraising proposition specialist to ensure we build irresistible cases for support and propositions for major funders (HNWIs, Trusts and Foundations, Corporates).

You are a committed team player with a clear focus on team objectives, as well as your own. You will promote best practice within your field of expertise and will challenge ways of working to ensure the highest quality and levels of efficiency. Your actions will be aligned with the Alliance vision and you will inspire the same behaviour in your peers. You are comfortable working in a matrix management environment.

The role will:

• Utilise technical expertise, act as a conduit between the programmes and the fundraising team to identify new opportunities for securing support and actively develop and spearhead funding propositions that cut across thematic areas, teams and functions.
• Work closely with both programmes and advocacy colleagues to ensure there is a shared understanding of donors’ needs and ambitions.
• Work with programmes and fundraising colleagues in order to translate complex technical language and concepts into donor friendly proposals alongside marketing materials and donor reports.
• Collect, store and systematise information about projects and other areas of Alliance’s work including case studies, statistics, quotes, videos.
