Asylum Access Hiring Development Director

Global refugee rights leader Asylum Access seeks an experienced fund development professional to join its senior leadership team. Together with other top leadership, the Development Director will design and implement strategies to help Asylum Access transform the human rights landscape in Africa, Asia and Latin America so refugees can live safely, move freely, work, attend school, and rebuild their lives.

The leading global organization dedicated to making human rights a reality for refugees, Asylum Access achieves its mission through legislative and policy change, legal services and strategic litigation, and facilitation of refugee-led community engagement and advocacy. Our proven track record of global and national-level policy change, coupled with individualized legal assistance and community support, has directly impacted more than a million refugees worldwide. Asylum Access celebrated its ten-year anniversary in 2015, and currently maintains 15 offices across seven countries.

The Development Director will join a global team committed to cultivating a culture dedicated to resource-development. With the help of an external fundraising consultant, Asylum Access spent the last year building existing and new development systems and growing the capacity of Asylum Access’s global leaders to act as ambassadors for the organization. Improved systems include the use of benchmarking methodology that helps identify progress to fundraising goal, a dynamic, real-time Salesforce forecasting system that tracks both cash in as well as movement along pipeline, and the use of strictly defined discounted percentages to ensure objective understanding of likelihood of giving.

With the support of a dedicated four-person fundraising team, the Development Director will manage Asylum Access’s currently successful fundraising strategies and develop new, growth-focused fundraising strategies. The Development Director will report to the Executive Director, sit on the global leadership team, and collaborate closely with the Board of Directors to achieve these goals.

This position was created to support the organization’s new 5-year strategic plan, to be approved by the Board of Directors this spring.
