Programme Funding Officer, One Child One Family HHCSA

Hope and Homes for Children

We are looking for a Programme Funding Officer to join us and make orphanages history. As the world recovers from Covid, there is increased risk of families experiencing the poverty, lack of support and desperation that drives children into orphanages, or Child and Youth Care Centres. There is vital work to be done in ensuring this does not happen and we are uncompromising in our mission to achieve deinstitutionalisation of the child protection system in South Africa.   

We’re excited to be launching the recruitment of a new position to support our vital work in South Africa. We are seeking a Programme Funding Officer to secure and manage programme funding from institutional donors (bilateral, multilateral and regional/in-country donors), foundations and other local funding sources (corporates etc) and to develop our in-country programme funding and local resource mobilisation capacity.  Based at our country office in Johannesburg, you will be part of a new team of four national fundraisers across the global organisation and will play a catalytic and leading role in strengthening our programme funding, securing funding partnerships and expanding our fundraising team in South Africa.   

We are looking for a dynamic, well-networked, strong leader who will inspire and build funding partnerships with potential donors, foundations and local resources to support our work in Care Reform to keep children in safe, supported and loving families. You will need creativity, innovation, determination, grit, courage, integrity and excellence; coupled with a strong sense of humour, empathy, patience, optimism, humility and an excellent understanding of the complexities of the funding landscape in South Africa.
