Closing date: 11 May 2017
Location: Our Head Office is based in Brighton, UK (potential flexibility around the location)

It is an exciting time to join the International HIV/AIDS Alliance. The organisation is implementing a significant organisational change programme and in this role you will be fundamental to the success of this programme, providing expertise which will enable the Alliance to fulfill its mission to work with communities through local, national and global action on HIV, health and human rights.

Are you who we’re looking for?
You are an inspirational manager who inspires genuine enthusiasm and passion in others, by bringing the Alliance’s strategy to life.

• Identify, prospect and deliver funding and principle gifts from corporates, high net worth individuals and the general public (through campaigns) in line with the New Markets strategies in order to achieve income targets. Develop partnerships with potential corporate sponsors, solicit major gifts from high net worth individuals, and set targets for fundraising campaigns. Manage a portfolio of prospects, both corporate and philanthropic, with a primary focus on securing gifts of $10,000+.
• Develop, manage and maintain relationships with internal and external partners: bring the right stakeholders together to secure transformational gifts, and ensure delivery against agreed objectives. Work in a coordinated manner with colleagues to promote fundraising with new donors, specifically with the Lead: Service Income, Lead: Institutional Funding and Lead: Trusts and Foundations.
• Mentor colleagues in the Secretariat and in Alliance Linking Organisations to identify and steward prospects (corporate and high-net worth individuals) to secure major gifts for the Alliance. Ensure all critical information is well documented (using Salesforce CRM) to facilitate prospect development and shared learning across the partnership.
• Contribute to the development of the Alliance culture.
• Set a good example for others, shows consistency in words and actions, learn from personal and organisational experience, strive for self-improvement, earns the trust and respect of management, colleagues and partner organisations, and treats others with respect.
