For almost 40 years, across nearly 50 countries, we have led the global fight against hunger. We save the lives of children and their families. We are there for them before and after disaster strikes. We enable people to provide for themselves, see their children grow up strong, and build prosperous communities. In 2017, Action Against Hunger reached over 20 million people. In the UK we have grown well over the last 20 years, increasing our income and staff numbers accordingly.
We are now placed to continue this growth and meet our ambitions for 2020 and beyond. Our Fundraising & Communications department has grown to a talented and passionate team of 36 people. We’re proud of our commitment to building the highest quality of relationships with our supporters and our portfolio of established and developing fundraising activities. We are confident we have the foundations in place to continue our growth and meet our ambition of raising £5m of private income per year by 2020. Our support from the food & hospitality industry is a key part of our success, and we place a high importance on securing and nurturing restaurant partners. This includes our annual restaurant fundraising campaign, Love Food Give Food, taking place in September and October. Uniting hundreds of restaurants, motivating thousands of restaurant employees and engaging millions of diners, the Love Food Give Food campaign generates a minimum of £500,000 each year.
We are now looking to recruit a passionate and dedicated individual who is keen to join our team and contribute to the fight against child hunger. The Senior Partnerships Officer drives the growth of that support from restaurant partners. You will lead on developing partnerships with restaurant groups to take part in Love Food Give Food and develop sector-leading, year-round partnerships. You will be experienced at cultivating professional relationships, have excellent negotiating and influencing skills and be passionate about inspiring others to contribute to the fight against hunger.
