Charity registered in Scotland SC032327
EMMS International works in partnership with communities in the poorest parts of the world to transform and save lives through effective healthcare.
You are a detail orientated, efficient and fantastic fundraiser up for the challenge of securing funding from charitable trusts and foundations for our life changing healthcare work in Malawi, India and Nepal.
As Trusts and Foundations Officer, your rewarding role will help make a massive difference to sick people fighting to get out of poverty in remote parts of the world. Reporting to the Director of Fundraising, you will be responsible for the development and delivery of the Trusts and Foundation partnership programme against an agreed annual income target.
You will work closely with colleagues across the charity, with the Leadership Team, and Board members to nurture a Trusts and Foundations pipeline that helps us deliver our amazing programmes.
You will manage your own workload including the writing of high-quality applications within deadlines, as well as researching and cultivating new funding partners. You will be responsible for developing and maintaining strong relationships with existing and prospective Trust funders, especially those with the potential to give significant multi-year grants. You will place high importance on providing excellent donor care, producing clear and thorough reports.
EMMS International (EMMS) is a Christian international healthcare charity that has provided health care to poor and marginalised people since 1841. With a vision for a just world in which all people have access to good quality and dignified healthcare, EMMS works with partners in some of the poorest communities of the world (in Malawi, India, Nepal and Scotland) to transform lives through compassionate, effective and sustainable healthcare. EMMS works with local partners in country, supporting organisations and people to develop health programmes that are appropriate to meet the needs of their own local communities and contexts.
EMMS has strong links with Trusts and Foundations and now we want to strengthen and grow it. We want to raise awareness of the incredible impact grants have on the sick and poor. We seek to inspire more funding partners to join this movement of change, improving lives where there is little hope for a better future and bringing holistic healthcare to those whose voice is not listened to.
You will be an enthusiastic fundraiser and a curious researcher who takes the initiative to identify new funding opportunities, with a warm, relational ability to build strong links with new and existing partners. Ideally, you will have fundraising experience, preferably within the Trusts and Foundations field.
To thrive in this very rewarding role, you will need to be a self-starter happy to work within a team and manage multiple priorities to produce a high standard of work. You will have a proven ability to write compelling cases for support, quickly grasping complex technical programme information and turning it into winning grant applications.
You will be a competent and organised person able to multi-task and work to tight deadlines. You will be experienced in working with data bases and take your responsibilities seriously in managing confidential information and the Charity records on the Raisers Edge database.
This is a rewarding opportunity for an experienced and enthusiastic fundraiser to work with a dynamic international healthcare charity. The successful person will have a proven track record in charity fundraising and a strong desire to bring hope and health to people living in extreme poverty.
Working closely with the Director of Fundraising, you will play a vital part in fundraising for our healthcare projects in Nepal, Malawi and India. You will build strong relationships with our supporters and their networks, run appeals and events, speak in church services, mobilise volunteer fundraising, recruit new supporters and grow our regular support income and legacies.
We believe Every Life Matters. Our vision is for a just world in which all people have access to good quality and dignified healthcare.
We are committed to helping transform lives through compassionate, effective, and sustainable healthcare. Working with trusted national partners we develop health programmes that are appropriate to meet the needs of communities - particularly those that are hard to reach.
We have an incredible community of dedicated supporters and we want to inspire more people to join this movement of change, improving lives where there is little hope for a better future and bringing holistic healthcare to those whose voice is not listened to.
With your help, we can make this a reality.
