Current vacancies

Major Donor Manager

Salary: £36,565 to £42,420 plus annual London weighting of £3,435

Location: Loman Street, London

Hours: 37.5 hours

Contract type: Permanent

When a baby in an orphanage cries, nobody comes to comfort them. Soon they learn not to cry and instead internalise their pain, causing lifelong damage.

Orphanages are often silent places for children deprived of love and deprived of life and a future. 

Hope and Homes for Children believes that every child has the right to the love and protection of a family. We are the global expert in ending a system of care that is destroying the lives of 8 million children today. 

We are determined to end this injustice in our lifetime. And that takes money. Our fundraising strategy paves the way to doubling and then doubling income again by 2022. 

Which is where you come in. 

We see our supporters as partners in our movement and we need a passionate, strategic Major Donor Manager who can maintain and grow some of our most transformational relationships. You’ll be a natural networker and communicator who is great at building long-term relationships and who gets a buzz from helping people help us change the world. You’ll recognise people as individuals and treat them as such, consistently delivering the very best experience. Most of all you’ll be passionate about using these skills to ensure every child can grow up in the love of a family.

In the role, you will be part of an organisation that is transforming children’s lives. Together, we’ll be changing the world.

Salary: £20,005 to £23,210

Location: HHC's main office, East Clyffe, nr Salisbury

Hours: 37.5 hours

Contract type: Permanent

We believe in Families. Not Orphanages. Why? Because Orphanages do not protect children. They harm them. Which is why we are working towards a day when every child can grow up in a loving family.

We are looking for a special individual to support our talented and highly respected Director of Programmes and Global Advocacy. Romanian by birth and originally trained as a medic, Dr Delia Pop is a leading figure in the field of child protection reform and deinstitutonalisation. She has worked over the last 17 years with children in institutional care systems and with children and families at risk of separation and she has a growing reputation at international level for her pioneering model of change.

To be successful in this role, you will need to be well organised, reliable, flexible and a good communicator. You will have plenty of initiative, good attention to detail, the ability to remain calm under pressure and the desire to get the job done. Most importantly, you will fit into our international team culture – we are passionate, resilient, courageous and strive for excellence in all that we do.
