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 Partnerships Manager you’ll be deeply involved in creating our strategy to establish successful corporate partnerships and to build and develop on existing relationships with Trusts and Foundations. Relationships are at the core of this role: from identifying and targeting prospects to providing outstanding donor care and stewardship to the partners that are so valuable to our work, your enthusiasm for what we do will shine through. You’ll need to be creatively entrepreneurial in your approach – there isn’t a fixed tool kit. You’ll be able to spot opportunities and develop strategies to convert them into long-term strategic relationships that offer rewards to all parties.
We expect that you will already have a successful track record in corporate or trust fundraising, 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.
