Who we are

World Jewish Relief provides lifesaving and life-changing action to people in crisis around the world. Founded in 1933 and proud to have rescued over 65,000 Jews fleeing the Nazis, World Jewish Relief today supports vulnerable people from marginalised communities, suffering the consequences of conflict and disaster. We work with our trusted local partners to help people survive the consequences of conflict and disaster, to thrive and rebuild their lives. We deliver programmes using our expertise, with urgency to achieve maximum and sustainable impact for those within and beyond our community.

We have significantly grown over the last five years and are continuing to grow at an impressive rate due to an exceptional development team, inspirational leadership and response to a world in crisis.

To continue the growth, we are searching for a talented senior manager who will focus on institutional and statutory funding opportunities.

The post holder will join World Jewish Relief’s energetic and ambitious fundraising team. With an annual income target of in excess of £10M, this is a fast-paced, busy department made up of 10 individuals working across a wide range of portfolios, both in the UK and the US, including trusts and foundations, institutional funding, major donor fundraising, individual giving, legacies, online matched funding campaigns, and high high-profile events, donor acquisition and engagement.

As we continue to respond to the protracted war in Ukraine, the global refugee crisis, and new emergencies, it is critical our fundraising team continues to strengthen our supporter base, grow our audience, and increase income generation significantly to fund the growing needs of our programme portfolio globally.

With that, we now seek an ambitious new Senior Development Manager to make a meaningful and lasting contribution to our ambitious plans and vision.
