Senior Adviser - Strategic Partnerships - UK or The Hague

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced institutional funding professional to join our new strategic partnerships function, to drive donor engagement and business development at Alert.

You will be responsible for coordinating HQ-led engagement with the top peacebuilding donors and will work closely with regional and country teams to share information and intel to support business development in-country. We are looking for someone adept at planning and coordinating strategic donor engagement across a diversity of internal stakeholders, with a proven track record in building new partnerships. You should bring a deep knowledge of key peacebuilding multilateral and bilateral institutions, ideally with a specialism in the UN, EU, FCDO, USAID, and/or other European bilateral funders.

In return, you will have the opportunity to join a dynamic and creative team, working with senior leadership in HQ and within Alert’s country programmes to drive new funding opportunities for the organisation. As a new position you will also have the opportunity to shape the role, and so a proactive, entrepreneurial approach is a must.

As it is unlikely that we will be able to obtain a work permit for this role, all job applicants must already have the right to work in the UK or the Hague.

Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis, and Alert reserves the right to bring the closing date forward so early applications are encouraged.

While International Alert will endeavour to contact all candidates within a reasonable time, this may not always be possible due to limited resources. Therefore, if you have not heard from us within two weeks of the closing date, you can assume your application has, on this occasion, been unsuccessful.

International Alert is an equal opportunities employer. All applicants will be judged strictly based on merit.
