Senior Prospect Researcher
Fixed Term Contract -up to December 2016
£38,800 per annum pro rata

Amnesty International is looking for a Senior Prospect Researcher in its Global Fundraising and Engagement Programme. The role is based in our newly formed Global Philanthropy and Trust and Foundations team at the Amnesty International Secretariat (AIIS).

About the role:
Working across Global Philanthropy and Trusts and Foundations, this role will support Amnesty International to grow income from high-value sources, undertaking research to identify and qualify potential donors for Amnesty, both on demand for specific projects and more widely for the prospect pool.

The Senior Prospect Researcher will lead on the delivery of high quality research profiles and manage the overall research workload for the team; including producing briefings, ethical screens, and other tailored research projects. The successful candidate will work alongside the Fundraising Management Team to proactively maintain a strategic relationship with the Office of the Secretary General, providing high-quality research to support existing relationships and identify new opportunities.

About you:
To be successful in this role you will have extensive experience of prospect research, specifically within high net worth individuals and trusts and foundations, ideally in an international context. You will be passionate about identifying high-value fundraising opportunities and will be able to demonstrate how you have used your skills to grow fundraising income and build a strong prospect pipeline. If you are committed to human rights, have excellent analytical, project planning and communication skills, and want to help Amnesty International to make an even bigger impact, this could be the role for you.

About us:
Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people who campaign for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. We reach almost every country in the world and have:
  • more than 2 million members and supporters who drive forward our fight for rights
  • more than 5 million activists who strengthen our calls for justice 
Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, fairness, freedom and truth wherever they're denied. And whether we're applying pressure through powerful research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations or online campaigning, we're all inspired by hope for a better world. One where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere. We can only do this because of the generous donations from millions of people around the world.

Closing date: 12 April 2016
