VSO is the world’s leading international development charity that works through volunteers to create a fair world for everyone.
At VSO we pride ourselves on doing development differently. We fight poverty not by sending aid, but by working through volunteers and partners to create long-lasting change in some of the world’s poorest regions. We bring key stakeholders together to co-ordinate collective action, from local organisations to national governments.

Our programmes in Africa and Asia focus on health, education and livelihoods, with an increasing emphasis on resilience, peace building, social accountability, gender and social inclusion. We’re not about delivering quick fixes, but instead we focus on long-lasting, sustainable change that will improve the lives of generations to come.

Role overview

Based in the UK and working within the Strategic Partnerships Team (Funding), this role will manage VSO’s relationship development and proactive positioning with major global foundations and other priority institutional donors. The role will include development and management of a focused engagement plan for a small number of key foundations and institutional donors, subsequent engagement and relationship development and high quality bid development. This will enable VSO to position for and secure high value new business opportunities to grow VSO’s global programme portfolio and deliver significant impact.
