Do you believe in the power of volunteering?

Expand your skills and experience as Fundraising Manager for a youth-focused, education-based, voluntary organization and support the development of young people in the UK and Africa.

This is a voluntary position.

Tenteleni is a youth-driven, volunteer-run charity that supports the development of young people in the UK and Africa in collaboration with local partners. We provide young people with international volunteering placements in schools and local organisations in South Africa, Kenya and Tanzania for 8 weeks during the University summer period.

Working alongside national volunteers through our Volunteer Partnership Programme, Tenteleni volunteers work in educational placements as teaching assistants; assisting with English language learning and youth issues. Volunteers are also encouraged to facilitate and support extra-curricular activities for learners and create links between local Non-Governmental Organisations and their placements.

Why Volunteer as Fundraising Manager with Tenteleni?

This is an opportunity to gain real experience of shaping and growing the fundraising of an organisation and perfect for someone who is looking for a career in international development or fundraising. With the need for skilled fundraisers in the sector on the up, you will gain practical experience of developing and implementing a fundraising strategy focusing on funding proposal writing, trusts and foundations, crowdsourcing and harnessing our alumni for fundraising. You will be tangibly contributing to our work that supports the development of young people in the UK and Africa.

We are a vibrant, youth-focused organisation, committed to the young people that work with and for it, and this position offers an opportunity to contribute to its strategic direction - and we actively encourage those still studying or in their first paid role to apply. You don't need extensive experience, but enthusiasm and an interest in the sector are key. We are volunteer run and therefore everyone is driven by their passion and energy. As a youth-focused organisation we aim to recruit young people; the majority of our members are under 30 years old.
