Concern Worldwide is a nongovernmental, international, humanitarian organisation dedicated to the reduction of suffering and the ultimate elimination of extreme poverty in the world’s poorest countries.

Our mission is to help people living in extreme poverty achieve major improvements in their lives which last and spread without ongoing support from Concern. To achieve this mission, we engage in long-term development work, build resilience, respond to emergency situations, and seek to address the root causes of poverty through our development education and advocacy work.


About the Role

Concern Worldwide has just completed work on a new strategic plan to take the organisation forward over the next five years. This strategy contains an ambitious plan for the development of its programmes and services that will require a significant increase in funding in a manner consistent with the vision, mission, and values of the organisation.

The Director of Public Fundraising and Private Sector Engagement is a key leadership position within the organisation, ensuring the funding it needs is secured by engaging consistently, coherently and clearly with the public through its public, corporate and major donor fundraising functions.

This position is part of the Senior Management Team, reporting to the CEO, and the Director will be expected to support and deliver on the wider strategic goals of the organisation, sustaining excellent relationships across different departments in Dublin, the UK, the US and South Korea.

To succeed in this role, the post holder must have extensive previous experience managing significant fundraising/revenue generating programmes, experience developing an online fundraising presence and extensive experience in the development of large-scale individual giving, regular giving, corporate and major donor fundraising programmes. He/she will be self-driven, passionate about their work and comfortable working under pressure and to deadlines. This role requires exceptional communication skills and a strong understanding of the Irish Not-for-Profit sector.
