We are excited to announce that we are recruiting for a new staff member.

We are looking for an ambitious Senior Fundraiser based In the UK or the Netherlands with an entrepreneurial attitude towards fundraising.

Asylos’ vision is a world in which all asylum decisions are based on fair process and accurate information. We believe that decisions to grant or withhold asylum should be based on independent, factual, current and credible Country of Origin Information. We are an international network that ensures that such information is accessible to people seeking asylum and their counsel. Our nearly 100 volunteers and team of eight staff members and consultants collaborate primarily remotely to uncover information that is often hard to find and/or requires specific language skills or contextual regional knowledge.

We are a passionate and close-knit staff team that operates within a very supportive and flexible work environment. The Senior Fundraiser will be fully integrated in the team and regularly interact with all staff members and with our volunteers. The Senior Fundraiser will work closely with the Director, who built up and maintained our portfolio of donors. Since the end of 2020, when we first hired a fundraiser, fundraising responsibilities are shared between these two roles. The Senior Fundraiser can engage volunteers and possibly interns for support if the person so desires.

This is a part-time (60% FTE) paid position, ideally starting on 1 January 2023 and lasting for two years initially (subject to renewal). Working hours can be spread flexibly across the week as agreed between the employee and Asylos. The location of work is primarily remote, with a practice of at least one day/week of work in the Amsterdam office if the employee is based in the Netherlands.

The position will be remunerated at 41,499 EUR gross annually pro rata if based in the Netherlands (including holiday allowance) or GBP 36,448 gross annually pro rata if based in the UK. The full-time equivalent of working hours per week is 38 and an entitlement to a full-time equivalent of 26 days of annual leave per year plus bank holidays applies. Asylos will contribute an amount equal to 6 percent of the Employee’s eligible salary to a pension scheme each month.

Whilst we anticipate and prefer that this would be a role for an employee, we are open to discussing the possibility of a candidate carrying out this role on a consultancy basis on appropriate terms within the framework of available funds and based on how the candidate would propose to provide the services.

Key responsibilities of this role include:

  • Manage and develop Asylos’ portfolio of trusts, foundations and corporate donors
  • Develop and implement new ways to generate income for Asylos
  • Independently produce grant applications and deliver pitches to prospective donors
  • Manage donor relationships and deliver grant reporting in a timely manner
  • Monitor and evaluate fundraising results, spotting trends and adapting methods as required
  • Assemble qualitative and quantitative data about Asylos in line with an existing evaluation framework
  • Create statistics, infographics and case studies to communicate our work to external audiences and internally to our volunteers and the Board
  • Conduct monthly bookkeeping
  • Engage in any other tasks, including administrative, as required and in consultation with the Director

For more information about the role, please refer to this job ad. The deadline for applications is on 13th November 2022.

People with lived experience of the asylum system or from communities disproportionately impacted by the immigration system and/or structural racism are particularly encouraged to apply.
