About AMPLIFY Girls

AMPLIFY Girls is a network of 40 community-driven organizations (CDOs) in Africa committed to building agency in adolescent girls. We envision a world where agency and opportunity are granted to every girl and resources and respect are given to the community-driven organizations that support them. We do this by supporting the growth of organizations through intentional collaboration and learning; advocating for the inclusion of community-driven organizations in global decision-making spaces; and developing cutting-edge research that enables us to understand, measure, and maximize girls’ agency.

Job Summary - Partner Resource Director

The Partner Resource Director role is a unique position designed for an experienced development professional. The role is best-suited for someone who is prepared to both utilize world-class fundraising and networking skills externally for the benefit of our network partners and serve as a mentor and coach for organizations as they seek to improve their resource mobilization plans and tactics.

You will act as both a connector and a subject matter expert for our network of 40 diverse community-driven organizations with respect to their resource mobilization needs. A successful candidate will be able to both cultivate useful prospects and connections for the organizations in our network and advise on successful and sustainable fundraising strategies tailored to each organization’s model and unique strengths. The Partner Resource Director is not expected to solicit or acquire funding directly on behalf of network partners, but, instead, is expected to broker opportunities that set partners up to successfully solicit funding themselves. You must have a deep knowledge of the global development and philanthropic sectors and carry a desire to support local leaders in building their fundraising knowledge and skills while expanding their access to opportunities.
