Fundraising and Development Manager
Prospectus is excited to be working exclusively with ESSA (Education Sub Saharan Africa) to recruit their new Fundraising and Development Manager. This pivotal role will enable ESSA to be effective as it enters its next development phase.
Created in 2016, ESSA is a UK registered charity advocating and actively working for more systematic cooperation and investment in the Tertiary Education space. Their aim is to join up, inform, inspire and increase impact for everyone investing in education in sub-Saharan Africa. With a billion more people on the continent within a generation, quality Tertiary Education will be a main driver of socio-economic transformation, if young people can find or create work and if their education allows them to do so.
This role will lead on the development and implementation of ESSA's fundraising strategy across income streams. Working with the Chair and Director, the Fundraising and Development Manager will also be responsible for mapping fundraising opportunities internationally and building a strong pipeline across philanthropic and corporate organisations, high value individuals, and grant giving bodies. This role will drive income generation to enable ESSA to deliver its mission and create maximum impact.
The successful candidate will be an excellent relationship builder with demonstrable experience of developing and delivering on fundraising strategies across one or more income stream.
