In just five years, Giving What We Can has grown to over 1150 members in 30 countries worldwide. The community has pledged over $450m towards ending poverty. We are looking for additional hires to build on this success.
As Director of Growth you will be ensuring that interest in effective giving actually translates to more donations to effective charities, and thereby more people helped. You would be reporting to the Executive Director, Michelle Hutchinson.
Specifically, you would be responsible for:
We’re a small team, so you’ll also have the opportunity to be involved in recruitment, fundraising, publishing our findings in the media and whatever else most interests you.
This role has great potential for impact: Over the past couple of years, Giving What We Can has reached millions of people with its message of committing to donate the most effective charities. It’s crucial to ensure that people have all the information they need to act on that message. By leading our individual outreach, you can help move thousands of pounds to charity. In so doing, you would be interacting on a daily basis with large numbers of people who are passionate about helping others. As one of the key team members of a rapidly growing small organisation, you’ll have great responsibility, autonomy and room to grow.
If you work for Giving What We Can, you’ll be part of a focused team of intelligent, caring, enthusiastic colleagues who want to change the world, located in beautiful Oxford.
We’re looking for someone who cares deeply about alleviating extreme poverty as effectively as possible and is excited to get others on board with that aim.
You’ll need excellent written and spoken communications skills, to enjoy interacting with large numbers of people, be very conscientious and thrive as part of a team.
Some examples of experience that would be especially useful include journalism and sales – though we’re interested in anyone who can demonstrate the skills. Also helpful would be experience with customer relationship management systems such as CiviCRM or Salesforce.
Candidates will be selected on the following traits, and should aim to demonstrate them in their application:
We would be willing to negotiate a starting salary between £19,000 and £25,000, depending on experience. Salaries are raised by £1,000 each six months conditional on good performance.
As a rapidly growing team, we are always on the look-out for dedicated and talented team members. As a young organisation, we are still in the process of developing the best strategy and our plans change rapidly. We are therefore particularly open to considering applications from candidates with broad skill sets and enthusiasm for work in a number of areas. If you think you’d be a good fit for our team in a capacity other than the specific roles we’re advertising, we’d love to hear from you. Amongst the skills which would be particularly useful to our team are:
