We are looking for a young university graduate (m/f/d) for our national and international fundraising consultancy

Opportunity for recent university graduates in international fundraising consultancy

Brakeley Fundraising Consultants GmbH is offering an opportunity for entrepreneurial and ambitious graduates to be trained in what is a hugely gratifying, fascinating and increasingly global profession. Fundraisers and Fundraising Consultants are highly sought after in the German fundraising market and globally. We are looking for highly motivated graduates seeking to become skilled and versatile fundraising professionals.

This is a 12 months full-time position in our Munich office. The successful candidate will initially shadow our senior consultants and will eventually develop an understanding of and perform tasks in the areas of small business administration and financial planning, marketing, customer acquisition and presentations as well as the full bandwidth of fundraising, including support case development, prospect research, prospect/donor cultivation and stewardship etc., with a focus on major donor fundraising. Brief internships with our international partners are a possibility.

This position aims to prepare the incumbent to become a broadly trained frontline fundraiser for any fundraising organization or for a career in fundraising consulting. The contract, foreseeing a 3 months-probation period, ends after 12 months unless replaced by another agreement. A continuation of the contract, while not entirely impossible, is not the primary goal of this opportunity.

Candidate requirements:

  • University degree
  • Track record in civil sector engagement
  • Keen interest in the fundraising profession
  • Basic understanding of business needs
  • Credible indication of exceptional motivation
  • Fluency in English
  • Native German is preferred, solid reading understanding of German is a must
