World Vision is an international children’s charity working with children, their communities, and with supporters and partners, in almost 100 countries.

Through long-term development projects, emergency responses and advocacy we’ve helped bring lasting change to millions of children, over more than 60 years. And as a Christian organisation, everything we do is motivated by our faith as we strive to reflect God’s unconditional love.

Work for World Vision UK and you will be part of a truly global Partnership, building brighter futures for vulnerable children.

Job Purpose

World Vision UK is looking for a Philanthropy Manager to join our vibrant team. This is a rewarding role, offering the opportunity to play an integral part in transforming the lives of millions of vulnerable children and their communities through our UK funded work in almost 40 countries across 4 continents. 

The successful applicant will be performance driven, working closely with senior management to develop a brand-new plan securing long-term, sustainable growth for the charity. Leading a team of six, we are looking for someone who is able to demonstrate a track record of fundraising from high net worth individuals so you will need to be a strong influencer and networker. You will develop compelling propositions that secure support for the charity, so your communication skills need to be second to none! With individual responsibility for philanthropy in this role, you’ll need the confidence and entrepreneurial spirit to own, build and grow philanthropic giving for the charity.

As an active Christian, this role offers you the opportunity to integrate your Christian faith and be sensitive to its various expressions across cultures and denominations. Sound like you? Would you like to know more? We offer a salary of £37,000 - £43,000 (depending upon your experience) + pension + generous holiday entitlement + flexible / home working and free parking (MK office only), and more importantly the freedom and flexibility to make this role your own.

Please upload your CV of full employment history explaining any gaps of employment and reasons for leaving your previous employer. This must be accompanied with a covering letter stating how you meet the essential criteria given in the Job Description.
