Title: Fundraising Communication Associate (IG)

Contract Type: UNOPS LICA-6

Posting date: 17 November 2021

Organizational Context

UNHCR is recruiting a Fundraising Communication Associate (IG) in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Established in December 1950, UNHCR is mandated to lead and coordinate international action to protect and assist refugees. In more than seven decades, UNHCR has helped more than 70 million people restart their lives. Today, UNCHR staff in more than 130 countries continue to help and protect millions of refugees, returnees, internally displaced and stateless people.

UNHCR has relocated several key functions from our Headquarters in Geneva to UN City in Copenhagen, including UNHCR’s Private Sector Partnership Service (PSP) supporting UNHCR’s growing engagement with the private sector in all regions of the world. This is a high priority area as we face a historic refugee crisis and financial support and strong engagement of the general public and the private sector is more critical than ever before.

In 2018 the PSP Office covering Denmark was established. PSP Denmark is now doubling its size and is set to meet ambitious results in 2021 and beyond. One of our key priorities is to accelerate our Individual Giving programme, targeted at the general public to secure the support of individuals. The aim is to generate both monthly and one-time financial donations using various channels and methods including social media, telemarketing and digital fundraising, with focus on strong donor loyalty and lifetime value. Increased visibility and engagement from the Danish public is also essential.

To achieve this goal, PSP Denmark is hiring a Fundraising Communication Associate (IG) focusing on fundraising campaigns, communication and donor retention. Reporting directly to Head of Individual Giving, we are seeking a creative and dynamic campaign associate with a sharp pen who will contribute to our ambitious goals.
