CAREER OPPORTUNITY: Programme Funding Officer, Haiti- CHRISTIAN AID


Haiti is a country in crisis. Christian Aid is raising vital funds to support the essential work of their Haitian partners as they reach out to the devastated populations across Haiti. To accomplish this task Christian Aid requires a new Programme funding officer to join their team.

The level of need in Haiti has meant that there are a large number of donors that want to support the relief and reconstruction efforts. Our partners on the ground in Haiti have the capacity to deliver real and meaningful support in some of the most devastated and affected areas. We want to ensure that they have the funds they need in order to continue their essential work.

The programme funding officer will have a key role to play in sure that we are liaising appropriately with the different donors in Haiti, in ensuring the efficient and effective management of externally funded projects and in fund-raising for new projects where appropriate.

You will have experience in successfully raising money from donor agencies; reporting back successfully to them and in maintaining good relationships with them. You will relish the challenge of doing this in a difficult setting.

In order to work with the partner organisations, with the wider Christian Aid and with the donors in Haiti you will need a very good level of French and English. A good working knowledge of Creole is highly desirable.

More than half the world lives in poverty. We aim to put a stop to that. So we campaign against the structures and rules that keep people poor. And we work with local organisationsto give people strength to find their own solutions to the problems they face, irrespective of their religion. If you’re as determined as we are to end poverty and injustice across the world, work with us to make change happen.
