The Southern Africa Senior Business Development Manager is a senior position, supporting three country offices (Zambia, Zimbabwe and Mozambique) to achieve their strategic funding ambitions. The position is strategically designed to support in-country business development and portfolio planning teams, while providing cross-learning and support to all three countries. There is a strong capacity building component to the role.

The Senior Business Development Manager will support donor landscape studies with each country office to identify donor trends, ensure the development of a high-quality funding strategy for the 2019-2021 strategic plan period in each country, facilitate structured donor engagement in each country, track and identify donor opportunities, and coordinate and write proposals for large, competitive funding opportunities when requested. The position requires innovative thinking and creativity to package our programme strategies in ways that attract the right donor support and grow our portfolio strategically and sustainably.

Recognising that many conversations with donors involve a review or update around current awards as well as discussions about new opportunities, the Senior Business Development Manager will also be expected to remain informed about the progress of Save the Children’s programming, Common Approaches and evidence generation.

The position requires regular travel in Southern Africa.
