Joint Aid Management (JAM) is an African humanitarian aid and development organisation, operating sustainable programmes targeting the most vulnerable children and communities in Africa.

As the world continues to grapple with complex humanitarian challenges such as COVID-19 and the increasing effects of climate change, JAM remains focused on providing emergency relief, health and nutrition, education and water, hygiene, and sanitation interventions to vulnerable communities in Africa – in dignified and sustainable ways.

JAM implements programmes extensively for UN organisations like WFP, FAO and UNICEF. Our vision is to see an Africa that thrives. Through our affiliate offices in the US, UK, Germany, Switzerland, Australia, Austria, Norway and Canada we have an ambitious fundraising growth strategy, with particular emphasis on grants.

As our operation grows, we are now looking to recruit a Head of Development to take overall responsibility for the successful running of business development functions. Working with Affiliates, Country Directors, and the Senior Management Team, you will co-ordinate all aspects of our income generation strategy and development processes with the aim of meeting strategic targets across the group.

This is a unique and exciting opportunity for an inspirational development leader to take on this career defining role. You’ll have a successful track record of driving income growth and working collaboratively with internationally dispersed teams. We are on a significant growth path and we’re looking for someone with exceptional leadership skills, who can evidence successful complex institutional fundraising bids, and ideally has knowledge and understanding of impact investment. You’ll have a background in international development and ideally have experience of scaling up operations.

If you’re as excited by this opportunity as we are, please don’t hesitate to get in touch for lots more details and a confidential conversation.
