Job Details

Lumos is an international non-governmental, non-profit organisation founded by J.K. Rowling. Our vision is of a world where all children have the opportunity to grow up in a safe and loving family. We believe that children belong in families not orphanages and we aim to achieve our vision by challenging care systems around the world to think differently about the solutions they offer to children in need. We will do this by casting light onto the shortcomings and risks of orphanages and similar institutions, and producing high-quality, compelling evidence of our long term, sustainable solutions.

Successful fundraising is vital to what we do, and to enhance our capacity we have created this new role. As Philanthropy Manager you’ll work closely with senior colleagues to support them in the management of vital relationships with potential and existing high value donors, whose generosity makes an immense difference to our work. You’ll help to develop effective engagement strategies for these key contacts, ensuring that they are appraised of our work and can see the difference their support makes. You’ll draw on a range of formal and informal channels to do this, from social media to face-to-face events.

It’s important that you have a good understanding of the dynamics of philanthropic engagement – what inspires generosity from people who have the means to make substantial contributions and how to ensure that they can see that their commitment is valued and used well. We expect that you will already have a successful track record in working with major donors, and you’ll be accustomed to working towards stretching targets. You’ll have the backing of a highly talented and committed team who are passionate about what we do. It’s a great time to join Lumos – we have a fantastic platform on which to build. And our work remains absolutely vital to securing better futures for children across the world. Be part of it.

Company

Lumos is an international charity founded by J.K. Rowling to end the institutionalisation of children by 2050. Across the globe, an estimated 8 million children are living in institutions – they are separated from family life and exposed to significant risk of harm, abuse and neglect.

To achieve our mission, Lumos works in partnership with governments, UN agencies, civil society, communities, families, children, and caregivers to transform outdated and ineffective systems that drive families apart.  Together with partners, Lumos replaces institutions with family and community-based services that provide children with access to health, education, and social care, enabling children to develop to their full potential.  

As Lumos expands globally we need a range of skilled professionals to work in our diverse and international team to champion to rights of all children to grow up within a loving family.
