Organisation: International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)
Position: Philanthropy Specialist – Individuals
Location: Bangkok, Thailand
Salary: C1 (see more below)
Closing date: 31/07/2022 (day/month/year)
International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)
The International Committee of the Red Cross
(ICRC) is an impartial, neutral,
and independent organization whose exclusively humanitarian mission is to
protect the lives and dignity of victims of war and other situations of
violence and to provide them with assistance. The ICRC responds to humanitarian
needs worldwide through its network of delegations and as part of the wider
International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (the Movement).
In the context of growing
humanitarian needs, the ICRC launched its Resource Mobilization Strategy
2020-2030 to guide fundraising efforts over the course of the next decade. This
strategy is underpinned by the Movement-wide Principles for Resource Mobilization,
adopted at the 2017 Council of Delegates, which articulate a vision
in which resource mobilization within the Movement becomes more than the sum of
individual efforts by different Movement components. Fundraising efforts at the
ICRC are geared towards making this vision
a reality, adopting a central guiding principle that ‘what is good for the
Movement, is good for the ICRC’. The ICRC is committed to working together with
Movement components (National Societies and the International Federation of the
Red Cross and Red Crescent) to maximize our collective potential.
The Strategy Implementation
Plan (SIP) process will guide this evolution to deliver increasing income for
ICRC and the other Movement components with which it actively collaborates on private
sector engagement. In support of this, ICRC is establishing a private sector
engagement (PSE) team for Asia-Pacific, primarily based in Bangkok.
Asia-Pacific presents significant potential as home to some of the fastest
growing economies globally, as well as global and local trends in philanthropy.
This role together with other posts to support foundation and corporate
philanthropy, fundraising content development and Movement fundraising
collaboration will be central in ensuring that our Movement secures the
resources it needs to continue to alleviate human suffering around the world.
As part of the Resource Mobilization Division (REM)
and within a regional team based in Bangkok, this role will have responsibility
for helping to progressively increase ICRC and other Movement income from the
private sector through the development of strong philanthropic collaborations,
with a focus on major gifts from individual supporters and where relevant,
family supporters, including ultra- and high net worth individuals, ensuring
that targets are met. The role will harness ICRC’s assets and work together
with National Societies and the International Federation of the Red Cross and
Red Crescent (IFRC) as necessary to present the Movement’s comparative advantages
within a crowded philanthropy landscape.
Investing in engagement in Asia-Pacific is a
prototype, testing and leading the way for resource mobilization efforts in
other regions. Accordingly, this role requires flexibility and agility, working
collaboratively and effectively within the ICRC and beyond to develop positive,
productive relationships, through which to deliver experiences, which enhance
and recognize supporter relationships. In doing so, the post-holder will help
achieve collective income targets.
This role will work closely with colleagues across
the Movement in Asia-Pacific. Your approach should be collaborative,
characterized by thoughtful action and decision-making, empathy, discretion,
By end 2022, the ICRC private sector
engagement team in Bangkok will expand to 5. This team has successfully
stewarded high value gifts from across the Asia Pacific region and contributed
to innovative ways of working together with National
Societies and the IFRC to increase resourcing for the Movement as a whole. You
will join a team of fundraising experts at the beginning of an exciting journey
in private sector engagement and have the unique
opportunity to contribute to and shape the team’s vision and the growth of
private sector engagement within the world’s largest humanitarian network.
