Welcome from James Whiting CEO, Malaria No More UK

The eyes of the world have been on the covid pandemic for the last 18 months, but there is another global health threat, malaria, that has impacted and killed hundreds of millions of children, women, men, over centuries and continues to do so today. The tools to eradicate this disease in the next 20 years already exist. The challenge is to persuade the world to focus on taking the action needed to end malaria, saving millions of lives.

Malaria No More UK is a small but agile organisation, globally recognised for our world-class communications, strong advocacy networks, high impact partnerships, and powerful cross-cutting relationships all directed towards ending malaria permanently. We have recruited influential ambassadors including our new President HRH The Prince Of Wales, global superstar David Beckham, Nigerian singer and activist Yemi Alade, and Kenyan Olympic Gold Medallist Eliud Kipchoge. We are known for being creative and ambitious in our approach and are a significant thought leader in the global malaria community.

Core support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, together with a growing number of influential partnerships with philanthropic foundations, global health companies and a creative collective of international media houses and advertising agencies has significantly increased over the last five years, as our role of convener and catalyst for the malaria campaign has become ever more critical. Malaria No More UK’s principal mission is to inspire global partnerships, dynamic leadership, and commitment to action to help eradicate malaria within a generation. Over the next two years we are determined to make our contribution to the commitment to halve malaria across the Commonwealth (a commitment we secured in 2018 from all 53 Commonwealth leaders whose countries represent over half the people living with malaria worldwide) and put the world back on track to ending it once and for all.

Our focus going forward will be on amplifying and expanding on the achievements of our award-winning advocacy and communications campaigns which reached over two billion people and inspired action by Heads of Government, CEOs and global changemakers.

MNMUK is seeking a Director of Philanthropy and Programme Partnerships who is able to drive our programme development, organisational case for investment and sustainable financial growth. If you’re excited by building out from our powerful core partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to create similar programmatic-based partnerships with major funders then we’d love to hear from you.

We are looking for someone who has a passion for building new projects and winning new business. We’re not overly concerned about the length of your experience or if you’ve been a director before. We’re not looking so much for ‘traditional’ fundraising experience. What matters to us is that you show a track record of achieving serious income growth, of developing innovative and pioneering projects in the international development space, and of building enduring and productive relationships with sophisticated major funder/partners. Equally, that you have the interest and ability to not only raise the funding, but also work with our communications and advocacy teams to help design and create the programmes with our major partners. If you are motivated by our ambition and think you can apply your skills and experience to join us in being a force for ending the deadliest disease in history, then please read on.
