Our vision for this role is to drive income growth with the emphasis on building on recent successes and partnerships taking the current financial and socio economic environment into account.

We’d like to talk if you are:
  • An excellent communicator with a flair for maintaining and developing relationships with existing donors and the ability to build a network of new donors

Company Description

The Children's Hospital Trust is an independent non-profit fundraising organisation which impacts on child healthcare through the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital – a stand-alone tertiary hospital in sub-Saharan Africa, dedicated entirely to children.
Since 1994 when the Children’s Hospital Trust was first established, we have raised over R600 million to upgrade, expand and equip the Hospital’s buildings, support key services, unblock backlogs in critical service areas and develop professional staff. In addition, the Trust has supported ground-breaking child healthcare initiatives outside of the Hospital, strengthening services for children at other levels of the health system and reducing burden on the Hospital.


In order to apply candidates must:
  • Have minimum of eight years fundraising/corporate/CSI/donor relationship experience in securing high-value donors with a list of proven local and international relationships
  • Have relevant degree/diploma
  • Have excellent English verbal and written communication skills. A second language, African or foreign, would be a plus
  • Be a leader with relevant experience
  • Have experience in preparing and delivering presentations to a variety of audiences
  • Have strong reporting, proposal writing and presentation skills
  • Have relevant work experience preferably within a non-profit or healthcare sector
  • Be able to clearly articulate outcomes and impact and be confident in interpreting budgets
  • A proven network with corporate relationships especially CSI/Transformation Teams
  • Be independent, but able to work with a team and highly-motivated with a can-do attitude
