Fauna & Flora is seeking an experienced professional to support Fauna & Flora’s funding from statutory (government and multilateral) donors. You will support colleagues and partners to develop high-quality proposal packages and reports for priority donors and ensure their timely submission. You will work across the statutory funding portfolio, helping to convene and coordinate internal teams in bid development, supporting outstanding technical design, developing and improving proposals, providing editing and formatting support, and ensuring that all documents produced for donors meet their criteria. You will also ensure that Fauna & Flora’s approval and submission procedures are followed. You will be versed in budgeting, such that you can accurately evaluate that the resources requested are commensurate with what is needed to deliver programmes. You will have a keen attention to detail and be comfortable working in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment.

There is a strong knowledge-sharing element to this work, and you will share examples of learning and best practice across the organisation to maximise Fauna & Flora’s success rate and support colleagues as you together build productive relationships with donors. You will have excellent data management skills, and monitor Fauna & Flora’s activities in statutory fundraising and fund management, to feed into internal forecasting and tracking tools, to inform internal decision-making and strategy development.

Strong relationship management and communications skills are essential to the role, to develop positive, collaborative relationships with internal and external stakeholders, including regional and cross-cutting technical teams, non-governmental partners, and government agencies. You will be a strong team player, resourceful, adaptive, and able to work with minimal supervision.

Fluency in written and spoken English is essential. Skills in languages relevant to Fauna & Flora’s programme are highly desirable. Sensitivity to the different working environments and capacities of colleagues around the world is also essential.

In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within a ground-breaking and entrepreneurial organisation, at the forefront of global conservation, with opportunity to apply your skills and expertise where appropriate. In addition, Fauna & Flora offers a generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance and life insurance.

Our offices are located in The David Attenborough Building in central Cambridge, just a few minutes’ walk from glorious historic buildings and museums, the picturesque River Cam, the central market and shopping centre, and a host of cafés and restaurants.
