We help to strengthen resilience of vulnerable people exposed to hazards and crisis situations and we respond to disasters and conflicts to save lives and alleviate suffering. In the Netherlands with more than thirty thousand volunteers and internationally through technical assistance, supplies and money. Together we act before, during and after disasters to meet the needs and improve the lives of vulnerable people. We do this without regards to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinion. Our seven principles guide our humanitarian work: humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality. The International Assistance department is responsible for all Netherlands Red Cross international support for victims of disasters and conflicts and for vulnerable people exposed to hazards.
The International Assistance department has opened a vacancy for a: Senior Resource Mobilisation Coordinator (The Hague, 36-40hours p/w).
Purpose of the position
As the Senior Resource Mobilisation Coordinator your first objective is to secure, intensify and increase the collaboration with The Netherlands Red Cross’ (Institutional) Donors. You work closely with other teams at The Netherlands Red Cross (NLRC), including technical advisors, country teams, fundraising teams, and the Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning team. You will support ‘field-based’ colleagues in strengthening their capacities to engage with donors and provide in-country support to proposal development when needed. This position is based in The Hague and operates from the Partnership and Resource Development & Programme Management (PRD&PM) Unit, with a direct report to the Unit Lead.
The Partnership and Resource Development & Programme Management Unit is a newly created unit and follows from a strategy review process of the International Assistance department that identified a number of opportunities and challenges to deliver on the strategy. This unit is a combination of the former programme management unit and the institutional donor engagement positions. As part of our strategy we require more emphasis on the development of institutional donor relations, development of new propositions, in partnership with Red Cross Red Crescent Movement partners (‘Movement’) and external partners and ensuring institutional donor compliance performance. The PRD&PM unit will lead the relationship management with and brokering of external partners. The unit will work closely with the Market development & Fundraising department, the Finance department, the Public Affairs team as well as with the Princess Margaret Fund and other partners. To ensure the connection and links with our partners are as agile as possible, the management of programmes has a prominent role in this unit.
Together with other units (Disaster Response, Strategic and Programmatic Partnerships, Data, Strategy and Water, Advice & Innovation) programmes and projects are developed and implemented through bilateral and multilateral partnerships. Local needs are the starting point for everything we do and so is our way of working: as local as possible, as international as necessary.
The department operates a Standard Project Approach (SPA): the PRD&PM programme managers operate through field-based Project Managers that hierarchically report into the Partnership Units but on project progress and reporting directly liaise with the PRD&SM Programme Manager.
While NLRC has the ambition to be much more proactive in its fund raising, still much of the resource mobilisation is done in response to open or closed calls for proposals. Since the new NLRC international strategy brings more thematic and country focus, the shift towards an increased volume of proactive, self-formulated partnerships and opportunities will need to be made. Further to that, you will:
