Work with us

Working for Hand in Hand means bettering people’s lives, at scale, in some of the most challenging places on Earth. Collaborating across teams, functions, borders and cultures, you’ll make a real and measurable difference, every day.

Hand in Hand is a lean, nimble organisation, excited by innovation and with the programmes to prove it. Got an idea? Let’s try it – no suffocating bureaucracy here. From Communications and MEL to Fundraising and Programmes, our team supports hundreds of thousands of members every year. In turn, we support our team, providing a range of enhanced employee benefits that set Hand in Hand apart.

Fundraising manager

Do you want to help millions of women in some of the world’s poorest countries succeed as entrepreneurs and work their own way out of poverty? Have you played a leading part in securing five or six -figure gifts from corporate or major donors? We’re looking for someone to join our small but well-connected, award-winning and multilingual fundraising team. If you think you can adopt the approaches that grew our funds by 33 percent last year alone – and, even more importantly, teach us some new tricks while you’re at it – we’d love to hear from you.
