Organisation: Maire Stopes International
Position: Senior Advisor, Partnerships and Resource Mobilisation
Location: London, UK
Salary: circa £40,000-60,000 depending on experience and ability
Closing date: 20/05/2018 (day/month/year)
Maire Stopes International
Marie Stopes International (MSI) is a global organisation
providing personalised contraception services to women and girls. Our local
teams of professionals are passionate about the work they do in communities
across 37 countries. The services we provide give a woman the power to choose
when she has children so that she is free to pursue her plans and dreams for
herself and her family.
The primary responsibility of this role is to further MSI’s Goal: The Prevention of Unwanted
Births and its mission of ensuring the individual’s right
to: Children by Choice
You’re going to play a vital role in in the future funding of
Marie Stopes. In order to grow, we need to diversify our funding streams (with
a commitment to double income from new and emerging donors in the next 24
months) and this is where you come in. We need someone who can look outside the
traditional major donors of sexual and reproductive health (DFID, USAID, EU,
Nordics, family foundations) to build relationships with emerging government
donors who have perhaps not been a partner with MSI to date, for example in the
Asia Pacific region (e.g. JICA) or new European donors (Belgium, France). You
will help us understand how these governments might invest in Sexual and
Reproductive Health and where we can partner with them.
Not only will you need to look to new sources of revenue, but
you’ll look to position MSI as a technical partner of choice. You’ll also be
creative in your approach to building partnerships to deliver sexual and
reproductive health services and rights. This might mean creating links with
new sectors and how a focus on sexual and reproductive health and rights can
support them in achieving their goals – and working with organisations we don’t
yet know well. You’ll need to articulate and evidence arguments for investment
from non-SRHR sectors - How does family planning support efforts to support
girls’ education, for example?
Essentially the world is your oyster – we need you to be
innovative and you’ll be fully supported to ensure that fresh thinking can
This isn’t your traditional Resourcing Mobilisation role – we’ll
need you to be highly creative to create those new opportunities. You’ll need
to have a new business mindset – not only the imagination to identify new
sources of funding but the drive and ability to bring your vision to fruition.
You’ll also need the experience, knowledge and gravitas to represent MSI to
potential partners and donors with minimal supervision.
Ideally, you’d have professional experience working with partners
and donors outside of the Western context, but a clear track record of
successful partnership building and resource mobilisation is most important.
You will have successfully designed international fundraising and engagement
workplans and demonstrated results within a clearly define timeframes, aligned
with organisational strategy. You will have experience in market analysis and
stakeholder mapping and will help us to move to a more comprehensive ‘client
relationship management’ approach to our resource mobilisation efforts.
You will have demonstrated your ability to track and convert
political and cultural conversations into partnership opportunities and resource
mobilisation efforts. Experience of working with advocacy colleagues to create
proposals that address a wide range of elements in delivering development
interventions is highly desirable. Your role will be to help us source funding
for everything MSI does to deliver sexual and reproductive justice to all:
service delivery, advocacy, metrics and evaluation and sector leadership.
Development experience is essential although not necessarily in
SHRH – while health related experience would be ideal, we would consider other
backgrounds. In-country experience implementing service delivery contracts
would be highly desirable.
So if you think you’ve got what it takes to identify, grow and
deliver new partnerships and new sources of funding, then this could be the role
for you. What are you waiting for?
In addition, you will be pro-choice on children by choice & not chance
