Fundraising Team Executive

Fundraising Team Executive

We are seeking a motivated and well organised person to support our fundraising team in our Shrewsbury office.

(This is a different position from the Senior Fundraiser – Grants post currently being recruited by TPP. https://www.tpp.co.uk/jobs/senior-fundraiser-grants)


Build It is a young NGO that has developed an effective response to the challenge of youth unemployment in Africa. Our skills training programme is focused on the construction sector and has so far trained almost 500 men and women.

We are at the beginning of a new phase in our story as we build on our established approach of training whilst constructing schools and clinics. New pathways for trainees are being piloted in partnership with the commercial sector and we are expanding the range of courses we offer from our bespoke training centre in Zambia.


We currently raise around £1M a year but are looking to double this by 2021. This comes from grants, High-Net Worth individual supporters and corporate partners.


This new position is designed to provide effective support to the rest of the fundraising team to help us to achieve our ambitious targets. Experience of customer service or relationship management would be useful.
In return we offer a friendly, collaborative working environment as part of a team of four based at our UK office in the centre of Shrewsbury with flexible hours. P/T considered.
