Aay’s Village is hiring an Accountant & Fundraiser for our international team of volunteers! This is an excellent opportunity for you who want to contribute to our mission in Laos.
You can be located anywhere in the world as long as you have a computer. You’ll be working weekly in a team of 6 international team members from all over Europe who volunteer for the local team consisting of 4 paid team members in Laos. We work on a basis of at least 5-10 hours weekly depending on what is happening that week. We always show flexibility both ways.
The position is split into two parts. Let us know if you are interested in either the Fundraiser or Accountant part, as we will consider to split this role into two. However, we hope to find a team member to fill both parts.
Part a) Fundraiser
We are looking for a fundraiser who can secure 4000 euros per year for our organization. These funds will go 100% to our local projects in Laos.
The position will include:
Research fundraising opportunities and write grant applications to charitable trusts or statutory bodies
Build relationships with major donors or companies and make presentations
Manage information and record the profile and fundraising activity of donors on a database
Account handling: ensuring major donors or companies are happy with their donation scheme and are kept informed of progress and milestones
Devise and organise fundraising campaigns, events and door to door collection
Spot fundraising opportunities and raise awareness of the organisation’s work
Fundraisers need excellent communication skills, both verbal and written.
You need to be good at researching and devising strategies and taking advantage of donation possibilities.
The fundraiser must be adept at building long-term relationships with potential donors and persuasively explaining our cause.
The ability to manage budgets and hit fundraising targets are important, as are organisational and IT skills.
Last but not least you need to believe in our vision in Laos, and care deeply about the people and nature we work towards helping. Volunteering with us is an adventure, and we need team members who are ready for the task, can work independently but also is a great communicator and an honest team member.
