Hiring Organisation: 
The Developer Society

Call for expressions of interest from NGO grant writers/consultants We’re a not for profit co-op filled with digital designers, developers and campaigners, using our skills to help groups who are changing the world like Lumos (J.K. Rowling’s foundation), Macmillan Cancer Care, Oxfam International, Save the Children, The Syria Campaign and many more. As a not-for-profit, we’re looking for a talented grant writer/consultant to help us pursue institutional and foundation funding so we can further our open source work and make the technology being used by the world’s biggest NGOs and charities available to all groups working for good.If you would like to help drive forward an exciting not for profit project and feel you have the experience to help us seek out further funding, then we’d love to hear from you.Who we’re looking for Ideally you’ll have:

  • Lots of demonstrable experience of securing grants
  • Experience of the NGO sector
  • Ideally also experience of the tech world but at least an interest in how technology can make social change
  • Knowledge of national, international and private funding opportunities
  • A deep passion for making positive change in the world

Why: The aim of the role will be to seek out large pots of funding that enable us to open source our technology and support the smaller not for profit organisations who don’t have a dedicated budget for digital work. The more unrestricted money (or funding to do specific work for the NGO sector as opposed to single orgs) DEV has access to, the more amazing work we can do. Especially work that is in the interest of all not for profits but would not be commissioned by any one org, giving us a chance to tackle collective action problems in the sector. What:You role will be to:

  • Help shape our approach to grants
    • Produce grant applications and proposal for appropriate funding opportunities
  • Leverage fundraising networks and existing relationships

Where/when: Our team is based in Birmingham and you can work with us or remotely. If working remotely, you’ll be expected to come to Birmingham to meet the team, get to know our work, and then occasionally for meetings.The contract is for 3 months with competitive remuneration in line with experience. Applying: Send your CV and an email introducing yourself and explaining what you think you could bring to the project to: studio@dev.ngoWe mightn’t be able to reply to everyone but if we think you could be a good fit, we'll get back to you quickly to arrange to have a cup of tea and a chat. Agencies: We have no involvement with emailing or cold calling agencies, so if you’re one, please don’t get in touch. If we change our minds one day, we’ll let you know.
