Marketing & Resource Mobilisation Officer - Shamba Trust Community NGO
- Secure sustainability for a poverty & HIV/AIDS-focused trust
- Your fundraising skills could help develop a community organisation
Swaziland has very high rates of poverty and HIV/AIDS, and The SHAMBA Trust was established to help those most in need through grass-roots community development. SHAMBA is an acronym for Self Help Action to Mitigate the Burden of AIDS, and the organisation takes a hands-on approach to helping disadvantaged women, children and young people in poor communities to tackle HIV/AIDS and poverty.
They have identified a need for a volunteer to develop and implement a fundraising strategy for SHAMBA in order to secure a sustainable income, and to increase SHAMBA’s profile and ties with other organisations in Swaziland and internationally. This position is crucial for the development of the organisation, the continuation of current projects and the establishment of further projects. Specific professional skills are required for this position, which cannot be found locally.
These skills the volunteer would need are:
- Reputation for excellence in marketing, including the development of a marketing strategy, developing marketing literature and coordinating events including meetings and speaking engagements
- Extensive results in fundraising including the development of a fundraising strategy, successful grant locating and application experience, the planning and implementation of fundraising events and the use of social media as a fundraising tool
- Reputation for excellent written and verbal communication skills including report writing and presentation skills
- A Bachelor’s degree is also essential, preferably in finance, marketing, public relations or business studies
In addition to professional expertise, volunteers need skills in training and developing others, applied awareness and sensitivity to cross-cultural communication, patience, tolerance and flexibility. They manage with good humour the daily challenges of working with very limited resources.
