This is an exciting and rewarding opportunity for a seasoned fundraising professional looking for a flexible and part-time working arrangement within a close-knit creative and dynamic team.
The Development Manager will play a key role in contributing to Justice Centre Hong Kong’s ambitious strategy to raise vital funds for our direct services and programmes to protect the rights of refugees, survivors of torture, human trafficking and forced labour.
We envision Hong Kong as a fair and inclusive society where even the most marginalised enjoy fundamental rights and access to justice. Justice Centre Hong Kong is an independent, non-profit, human-rights organisation working to protect the rights of Hong Kong’s most vulnerable migrants – refugees, victims of forced labour and human trafficking and survivors of torture. Justice Centre undertakes evidence based research which is used in advocacy to strengthen the rule of law in Hong Kong. We envision an inclusive, just society where people from all countries of origin enjoy dignity, human rights and access to justice in Hong Kong. Justice Centre is not affiliated with any religious or political organisation and does not receive any government funding. Justice Centre provides free legal, psychosocial and torture rehabilitation services for our service users, as well as capacity building for wider civil society regionally.
We enable our clients to access their rights through legal and psychosocial support, policy, advocacy and research.
We are looking for an enthusiastic individual with meticulous attention to detail who has experience in donor acquisition and retention, writing successful bids and managing a portfolio of donors/clients. The scope of the role is flexible according to the skills and experience of the successful candidate and their availability.
Applications are welcome from candidates who have a background in sales and marketing, NGO or corporate fundraising and grant-writing.
