Saferworld is an independent international organisation that works to prevent and reduce violent conflict and build safer lives.
Saferworld’s income is secured primarily from statutory and institutional donors. The Programme Development Manager will join the Policy, Advocacy and Communications Division and support their efforts to identify, secure and manage funds for their work, from both statutory donors and trusts and foundations. The initial focus will be on supporting fundraising efforts for Saferworld’s UK work, the Brussels office and the China Programme, with a broader portfolio developing over time.
The post holder will have experience of raising funds for policy, advocacy and/or research programming, managing funding relationships with a range of donors and supporting teams on grant management and compliance. This will require knowledge of programme design processes (including theories of change) and experience of supporting the production of high quality and complex proposals, along with an understanding of the role that policy, advocacy and research play in the wider development spectrum.
The Programme Development Manager will support policy, advocacy and research teams in designing and mobilising funding for peace, security and justice programmes. Working closely with colleagues in a range of teams and partner organisations the post-holder will lead on: coordinating and facilitating programme development processes (including taking the lead in drafting theories of change, logical models, narrative proposals and budgets). S/he will be responsible for developing and supporting the implementation of long-term funding plans according to policy, advocacy and research strategies; supporting new donor engagements and sustaining relationships with current donors, and writing high quality funding applications. S/he will be responsible for growing and overseeing statutory/institutional funding and supporting the broader implementation of fundraising strategies of our affiliate office in Brussels, the China Programme and various policy/advocacy/research programmes.
