VSO is the world’s leading international development organisation that works through volunteers to fight poverty. Working in 24 countries around the world, our unique role in international development is to place committed volunteers with carefully selected organisations where their skills can have the greatest impact. Our extraordinary volunteers live and work in some of the world’s poorest communities. Sharing their unique skills and experience to generate new ideas and new ways of doing things, helping the communities they work in lift themselves out of poverty. We’re not about delivering quick fixes, but instead we focus on long-lasting, sustainable change, that will impact generations to come. Join us and help us work towards our vision of a world without poverty.
Based in the UK and working within the Strategic Partnerships Team, this role will manage VSO’s relationship development and proactive positioning with major global foundations and other priority institutional donors. The role will include development and management of a focused engagement plan for a small number of key foundations, subsequent engagement and relationship development and high quality bid development.
