Head of Fundraising

Doctors of the World UK

Doctors of the World UK is part of the global Médecins du Monde network, which delivers over 300 projects in more than 70 countries through 3,000 volunteers.

Our vision is of a world in which vulnerable people affected by war, natural disasters, disease, hunger, poverty or exclusion get the healthcare they need.

We believe that every person living in the UK has the right to healthcare, and we work to influence public policy and local implementation to reduce health inequalities and ensure access to healthcare for all.

The Head of Fundraising leads the fundraising team at Doctors of the World (DOTW) UK to inspire people and partners with the story of DOTW’s impact and change, and to build the income, change, and influence required to deliver our mission in the UK and globally.

The successful candidate will be an inspiring, collaborative leader who encourages integration and supports their team to succeed and achieve their targets and potential. The ideal incumbent should have an impressive track record of developing and implementing fundraising strategies, encompassing a broad spectrum of fundraising and related marketing activity and is equipped with demonstrable experience in establishing, monitoring, and achieving financial targets in the not-for-profit sector and be successful at managing change at a strategic and operational level.

We are a fun and friendly bunch in a small, but high-performing fundraising team with a significant portfolio of opportunities, which support our UK and international programmes and campaigns. We’re looking for a great new colleague, with a passion for raising funds and an appetite to help us reach new and diverse audiences to grow our supporter base and unrestricted income.

Those with lived experience of migration, the asylum system, homelessness, or exclusion from health services are encouraged to apply.
