CARE International in Rwanda is seeking to recruit a “Business Development and Funding Officer”

CARE is a global leader within a worldwide movement dedicated to ending poverty. We are known everywhere for our unshakeable commitment to the dignity of people. We currently work in over 93 countries, and focus primarily on women and girls as the most disproportionately affected by poverty, while engaging men and boys through our work too.

Institutional income is increasingly important to CARE. Such institutional sources (including multilateral and bilateral agencies and donors) typically have decentralized operations, budgets, and decision-making structures throughout the world. To engage effectively with these organizations, CARE has an established global - architecture that mirrors its key institutional relationships builds stronger partnerships, and delivers greater impact and influence at country, regional and global levels. This operational architecture also enables CARE to more readily pursue multi-country / regional opportunities that are increasingly offered by institutional donors to address transnational issues to most effectively mobilize resources.

Overview of the Role
Based on CARE’s strategies in Rwanda and Burundi, and in accordance with CARE 2030 vision, the Business Development and Funding Officer (BDFO) will support in leading on new business development in support of Rwanda and Burundi, creating, identifying, and accessing new funding opportunities; contribute in maintaining a consistent standard of donor relationship and high-quality proposal development across the two country contexts; and will actively seek to grow income for the CARE country programs through (national, multi-country or global) funding opportunities and consortium partnerships.

The BDFO will be expected to work alongside the country teams and CARE USA in operationalizing the results of the donor mapping and be the primary link for accessing technical fundraising assistance and support from the confederation’s fundraising architecture and especially all the (current and potential) CMPs of countries both at global and at regional ECSA levels.

Requirements for the Role
