Do you have experience in fundraising? Are you self-motivated and happy working independently from home?  Have you sat on the board or management committee of an NGO before, or do you think you are ready to? Do you want to be a part of an organisation that makes a genuine difference to local communities fighting poverty in Africa and Sri Lanka? Then you've come to the right place!

At RoundTrip Foundation we believe that harnessing the power of travel can make a huge difference in the fight against poverty. We establish and support innovative development projects in Africa and Sri Lanka, actively promote responsible tourism, and encourage the travel community to give back from their wanderings.

We are a small organisation that offers flexibility, an opportunity to get involved in all facets of our operation, and the knowledge that you really will make a difference...

Our current fundraising comes from diverse sources and has been very successful.  However, the current global pandemic has seen the travel industry shrink rapidly, and we are keen to implement new strategies to ensure the integrity of our income, as we extend our reach into more developing countries.

We require an accomplished fundraiser who can continue to grow a reliable income stream for us to facilitate the many new and exciting projects on the horizon. If you can piece together a realistic fundraising strategy and  you enjoy small, innovative events and fundraising activities then a role at RoundTrip may well be for you!

Due to the responsibilities of being a member of the management committee, the role requires a broad knowledge of NGOs and their operation.
