CDP Latin America is seeking a seasoned Development Manager who will serve as part of CDP's Global Development team, which focuses on the strategic development and management of funder relationships. Half of CDP’s global income comes from grants and there is significant potential to expand and strengthen our relationships and income in Latin America and internationally. S/he will help secure funding from foundations and governments by supporting and leading the cultivation and solicitation process for a portfolio of prospects. Working closely with CDP colleagues from a range of teams, s/he will write high quality, tailored concept notes and applications, and support consortium building for high value multi stakeholder funding opportunities.
This is a new role in an expanding global team to support the achievement of CDP Latin America income targets aligned and integrated within Global income targets. To succeed you’ll be the kind of person who builds strong relationships with colleagues, grasps complex concepts quickly and communicates them clearly in ways that appeal to funders, and be passionate about the work that we do. As with any expanding organisation there are challenges – you’ll need to be determined, tenacious and focused on solutions.
