Current Job Vacancies

Senior Fundraising Officer

We are looking for a highly organised and conscientious Senior Fundraising Officer to join our expanding UK Team and help us work towards our vision of a sustainable and fairer world where clean energy is accessible to all.

This is an exciting time to join Renewable World as our focus moves towards delivering our new three-year strategy and, in the longer term, transforming the lives of over 500,000 people by 2030. As Senior Fundraising Officer, you will deliver initiatives which catalyse growth in Renewable World’s fundraising from individuals, corporate partners and events, helping us to secure the funding and partnerships to meet this ambitious target.

Working closely with the Fundraising and Events Manager, the Fundraising & Communications team, and colleagues around Renewable World, you will lead on our day-to-day individual giving recruitment and retention work; work closely with the Fundraising and Events Manager to scale-up our corporate fundraising through driving prospecting, supporting proposals and managing smaller corporate accounts; and manage the delivery and growth of our events portfolio. Supporting the Director of Finance & Operations, you will also help ensure the smooth running of the HR, business planning and IT platforms on which our work in the UK relies.

This is a great professional development opportunity for candidates aiming to progress their fundraising career, whilst also gaining valuable insight and experience in wider organisational management. We are looking for an ambitious, highly organised and conscientious fundraiser, with 12 months+ experience working in a fundraising role in either (or both) individual giving and corporate partnerships. Our ideal candidate will be able to provide excellent supporter care, as well as being confident in managing supporter data. The post-holder will be passionate about our work and committed to building a strong, vibrant and highly professional funding base for Renewable World as it continues to expand its work.

This role will be based in our office in Brighton. As such, the successful candidate will be able to travel to and work routinely in the office, but there will also be some flexibility to work a proportion of your hours from home.
