Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) works for the health and dignity of Palestinians living under occupation and as refugees. We deliver medical and humanitarian aid in an impartial manner to those most vulnerable and at risk, while also developing local capacity and skills to ensure the long-term development of the Palestinian healthcare system. Our overarching goal is to improve the health and promote the well-being of Palestinians, strengthening the capacity of local partners.

We are an international, non-governmental, independent, non-political, non-religious charity that has worked towards this goal for nearly four decades, delivering health and medical care to those worst affected by conflict, occupation, discrimination and displacement. Working in partnership with local and international organisations, UN agencies and academic institutions, MAP addresses a wide range of health issues and challenges faced by the Palestinian people.

Our vision is of a future in which all Palestinians can access an effective, sustainable and locally-led system of healthcare and the full realisation of their rights to health and dignity.

Alongside our work on the ground in the West Bank, Gaza, East Jerusalem, and Lebanon, we are also committed to bearing witness to the injustices caused by occupation, displacement and conflict. We speak out in the UK and internationally, and ensure Palestinian voices are heard at the highest levels, to press for the political and social barriers to Palestinian health and dignity to be addressed.

This is an exciting time for MAP and we are looking for a dynamic Director of Fundraising with strong strategic and management skills to join our team. As we prepare our new five year strategy, we are seeking a creative individual to lead a growing and hardworking team and drive our fundraising efforts across a diversified range of income streams to achieve long term, sustainable income growth worldwide and in particular from the UK public.

The responsibilities of the Director of Fundraising include:

  • Provide leadership, direction, and support to staff, ensuring they deliver a high-quality service.
  • Development and implementation in MAP’s overall five-year strategy, leading specifically on fundraising, to help meet the organisation’s strategic goals.
  • Development of a strong brand identity and excellent communications and digital marketing to generate recognition and support from a wide range of audiences.
  • Identification and development of donors across individual, corporate philanthropic, institutional, and community fundraising, developing a broad range of events to maximise opportunities for donor engagement.

The next Director of Fundraising will be an individual of exceptional calibre who can work closely with other members of the Senior Management Team to ensure that appropriate processes and systems are in place, that objectives are achieved, and plans are delivered. They will demonstrate the following:

  • Relevant experience and a proven track record of delivery of income growth across multiple fundraising channels.
  • Proven experience of producing successful proposals for large scale projects.
  • Experience of working at SMT and reporting at Board/Trustee level.
  • Experience of managing staff across different fundraising areas.
  • Experience in international fundraising.
  • Experience of strategic planning, budgeting, and forecasting.
  • In-depth and up-to-date knowledge of charity law, fundraising regulations, standards, and best practice.
  • Empathy towards the main aims and purposes of MAP.
  • Experience working with international teams would be particularly beneficial.

MAP is committed to equal opportunities and encourages applications from anyone who can meet the criteria, regardless of gender, race, age, disability, sexuality or religion.
