Volunteer Fundraising Assistant, London
Independent Diplomat (ID) is looking for 3 volunteers to support its summer fundraising drive as Fundraising Assistants. The position is available as soon as possible, ideally for a period of three months.
ID was founded in 2004 as the world’s first diplomatic advisory group by Carne Ross. Over ten years later, ID remains the only non-profit organization that provides high-quality, confidential diplomatic advice and assistance to democratic governments and political groups that are marginalised or unable to participate effectively in the diplomatic processes that most affect them. ID’s work in human rights, transitional justice, and conflict prevention continues to address this diplomatic deficit.
This position would be ideal for an individual looking to gain relevant experience in fundraising on behalf of a unique organisation dedicated to helping marginalised peoples access the closed world of diplomacy. Successful candidates will be self-motivated, passionate about international affairs, and able to quickly synthesize complex information from a variety of sources.
As this position is unpaid it may be most suitable for university students who will be staying in London during the summer break. We are flexible as to the start date of the position, in order to work around final hand-in dates.
During the position you will receive training in non-profit fundraising, from large-scale grant finding to small boutique foundation research. After the end of the three-month period, ID would be happy to provide references for the quality of your work whilst with the organisation.
Please send (i) a CV (maximum two pages); (ii) a separate cover letter (maximum one page); to: london3(at)independentdiplomat.org. Please include the words ‘London Fundraising Assistant – Summer 2017’ in the email subject line.
Applications close at 5:00pm (BST) on Friday April 21st, however we will monitor applications on a rolling basis and may appoint positions before the end of this period.
