Project Information Coordinator
Plan International UK strives to advance children’s rights and equality for girls all over the world. Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children. We have been building powerful partnerships for children for 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.
Our Major Partnerships Unit builds relationships with, and raises funds from, the private and philanthropic sector. Within the unit, the Project Information team supports fundraisers to raise match, unrestricted and other strategic income. If you want to contribute to this by helping to communicate our work in an effective and engaging way, we have the perfect role for you.
As Project Information Coordinator, you will be primarily focused on the marketing of our programme work and strategic projects and ensure that up to date, accurate information is available for fundraising and for creating donor facing materials that communicate our work. Working both proactively and responding to incoming requests and funding opportunities, you will ensure that our supporters (companies, trusts and individuals), have high quality information about the projects that donor funds help to deliver.
An excellent communicator, able to adapt your style to meet the needs of different audiences, you will bring your skill in (and experience) of writing for a variety of external and internal audiences. You will also be able to demonstrate the ability to manage multiple relationships, with competing deadlines, and use systems for sharing and recording important details.
You will need to have sound experience of written fundraising, preferably for international development work, and ideally some experience of working with reports and proposals written for technical or institutional audiences. You will be knowledgeable about international development approaches and current development issues, and have an understanding of the human rights-based approach to children’s rights and equality for girls.
The deadline for applications is 9:00am on Monday 14 August 2017
Interviews will take place on Wednesday 23 August 2017
