senior proposals and reports manager
london sw7 

At Alpha International, we believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view, wherever they are in the world.  The Senior Proposals and Reports Manager plays an important role in Alpha’s International Fund Development Team, directly underpinning our ability to build positive relationships with donors, enabling us to raise in excess of £10m annually to grow our reach around the globe.

We are looking for an exceptional communicator who can write and design clear, compelling and accurate fundraising materials to communicate the success of our mission to our supporters, and help them understand the value and impact of their support. This documentation will help the whole team maintain an excellent standard of donor stewardship.

The role reports to the Global Development Director and works alongside other fundraisers and communications specialists in the Fund Development Team.  Key responsibilities include: 

  • Researching and writing (using Adobe InDesign) clear, concise and compelling funding proposals, reports, and other materials that powerfully communicate Alpha International’s mission and programmes.
  • Working with other members of the Fund Development Team to plan the most effective approaches for communicating with our donors.
  • Maintaining accurate records and monitoring delivery against deadlines.
  • Liaising with other internal and regional teams to gather information for funding proposals. 
  • Collaborating with and advising regional teams on developing their own materials.  

The successful candidate will have a passion for and commitment to the vision of Alpha International, and the ability to write clear, concise and compelling funding proposals and reports. You will have the ability to research information for fundraising documentation, and to apply critical and analytical skills, identifying and organising the material that is truly relevant for the production of accurate and compelling communications.

You will have a servant-hearted and teachable spirit, and be a strong, collaborative team player, with excellent interpersonal skills, able to get the best out of colleagues when their priorities may not be your priorities. You will have (or to have the capacity to quickly develop) excellent Adobe InDesign and Raiser’s Edge skills.  In-house in-person training for relevant aspects of Raiser’s Edge and access to an online training course for Adobe InDesign will be available.

As a Christian organisation our faith is an integral part of our working culture, which is shaped by our GRACE values; Gracious, Resolute, Appreciative, Capable and Engaged. We have a purposeful working environment where we strive for excellence in everything we do.    We respect and value our colleagues, encourage and affirm often, challenge when necessary, supporting always.  It is an inspiring and energising place to work where innovation and creativity is encouraged alongside passion and discipline.  The staff community is warm and engaging, with lifelong friendships being built.
