Job Description

The role.

ADD International is looking for a Director of Funding, Communications & Transformative Partnerships to help us resource our work in new ways as we move through a period of re-imagination and change. You will lead our Public Fundraising Team and take strategic leadership of the ways in which we are able to raise funds to channel resources to activists and organisations we work in solidarity with in the Global South. We are looking for someone with a passion to re-think the ways in which our work is funded in the future. We would anticipate you spending about 50% of your time supporting our existing team in public fundraising and communications and the other 50% re-imagining how we resource our work and developing that approach and new partnerships to support it.

The ideal candidate.

This is a very exciting opportunity for someone passionate about generating resources to support the reimagining of our role as an ally to disability movements.

Successful candidates will need to be successful fundraisers with strong strategic vision and creativity, combined with the experience and practical leadership skills to lead their team as well as to engage with a range of other staff across the organisation.

You must also demonstrate a passion for ADD's mission and have a deeply nuanced understanding of the lives of disabled people in the countries we work and a demonstrable commitment to the Social and Human Rights Models of Disability.

Applicants who wish to be based in the UK must already be eligible to work in the UK.

Disabled candidates are particularly encouraged to apply and as a 'disability confident employer' ADD guarantees to interview all disabled candidates who meet the minimum criteria and ensure reasonable accommodation in the interview process. ADD is committed to making reasonable adjustments during the recruitment process and throughout employment.
