Reporting to the Asia Regional Director, this role is a key member of the leadership team that will lead on two key areas of work for the Asia Regional Office (ARO):
Resource Mobilisation and Strategic Portfolio
This role works closely with the Member Growth team, Country Office Program Development & Quality and New Business Development leads, to understand funding needs at a Country level, and works on how Save the Children grows and optimises funding to address these needs.
It will focus on developing a regional funding strategy that looks to align the funding portfolio with Country Strategy Plans and to drive improvements in new business development across all funding streams. This includes embedding the principles of partnership management, award portfolio guidance, strategic use of match and pooled funding in order to maximise the impact of unrestricted income, and working on key initiatives including win/loss analysis and closer alignment between country strategic plans and fundraising. The post holder is responsible for improving new business development in SCI Country Offices and coordinating with member teams to build capacity in this area. It will be the business owner of the Fundraising Protocol at regional level, and will improve the way we work within the protocol and how we apply organisation wide account management rules using the partnership management guidance.
It will play a leading role in ensuring cross-departmental coordination and collaboration with other teams at headquarter, regional and country offices as well as engaging with Save the Children members.
This role will also be responsible for developing a small fundraising team in the region based on the outcome of the market assessment work and regional funding strategy.
It will also ensure alignment with the Member Growth team, and in particular with the Global Fundraising Hub and the institutional partnerships team.
