Plan International UK strives to advance children’s rights and equality for girls all over the world. Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children. We have been building powerful partnerships for children for 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.

We are recruiting a Senior Major Donor Officer to join our Philanthropic Partnerships Team. The team is specifically responsible for all trust, foundation and major donor relationships and income.

You will also play an active role in identifying, cultivating, securing, managing and retaining donors and soliciting major gifts, and contributing to the philanthropy team strategy.

You will have a track record of successfully creating and managing relationships with major donors,and securing six-figure gifts. You will have experience of research and prospecting, strategic planning and portfolio management and you will also have established, built and managed development boards/giving circles. Knowledge of international development would be an advantage.

This is a full-time role, working 34.5 hours per week. However, we will also consider applications from individuals interested in a part time role or a job share.
