Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI) is a global organisation working for the practical realisation of human rights through research, advocacy, capacity building and mobilisation. Locally, the organisation links with the Commonwealth Secretariat and other institutions based in London advocating for human rights promotion and protection within the Commonwealth. In addition, they work closely with our Commonwealth 8.7 Network members focusing on eradicating modern slavery who are based locally. Our London office is small, with 6 in our team plus 4 interns, looking to expand and improve systems and processes.

Total length of project: 24-28 hours over 2 months

CHRI are looking for support from a fundraising strategist, currently conducting fundraising activities in an ad hoc manner. With aims to expand, the organisation is trying to ensure stability and long term sustainability of their activities and operations. CHRI would like to explore the feasibility of a variety of funding sources, including institutional donors, corporate donors, multilateral institutions, individual giving and legacy donations; all captured in a robust strategy that can be implemented by their small, but growing, team. 

For this role we are looking for an experienced fundraising strategist. Experience of dealing with intricacies of various funding streams is very useful as well as how different branches of an organisation speak to one another.
