The Institute of Philanthropy is one of the premier providers of professional training and personal development for new and experienced philanthropists seeking to enhance the quality, scope and scale of their philanthropic activities and the streams of social benefit and lasting social change that these generate. Under the direction of its new Chief Executive, Kurt Hoffman, the Institute is embarking on a 3-year institutional and programme development effort.
The person taking up the position of Programme Officer will be an integral part of the TEACH Philanthropy Team. This team is focused upon recruitment of course participants, the programming of our courses, and at core, the delivery of training in strategic philanthropy via mentoring, expert classroom instruction, use of case study-based teaching tools, “learning by visiting” to operational social change initiatives in the UK, US and in emerging (developing) economies.
The principal responsibilities of the TEACH Philanthropy Programme Officer will include programming and executing modules of our various donor education programmes that run in London and the developing world; supporting the delivery of more specialised philanthropy training or advisory work in London; building and managing key partnership and speaker relationships for the advancement of the Institute, and representing the Institute on our education programmes in person, and through publications, at events and in the press.
You will be degree educated, with an understanding of, and some experience in, the planning and delivery of skill-based education, and a grasp of the basic tenets of “strategic” philanthropy. You will have a 3-year (or more) track record in a philanthropic, social change oriented charity, community foundation or social enterprise organisation or initiative from within the public, private or “Third” sectors. You will be very well-organised and a self-starter, with a great track record of delivery and of taking initiative. You will have excellent writing and communication skills, the capacity to manage simple budgets and a strong willingness to learn and develop.
