Proposal Report and Writer Lead - Asia Pacific

Asia Pacific

Who We Are

IJM is the global leader in protecting the poor from violence in the developing world. Our global team of over 1,000 professionals are at work in over 25 countries. Together, we are catalyzing a global revolution that will rescue millions, protect half a billion, and make justice for the poor unstoppable.

Motivated by God’s call to seek justice for the oppressed, we believe that the way we work is as important as the results we achieve. We are a global community that cares for one another. We value joy and celebration, and we strive to provide professional excellence to all those we serve.

The Need

After nearly two decades of continued growth and operational success in pioneering the work of protecting the world’s poorest people from violence, IJM has become a US$80 million organization. As IJM continues this trajectory of growth and scaling of our impact, we imagine a global movement in citizen security where governments own and deliver unprecedented justice and protection to the poor, marginalized and vulnerable. A critical driver of this vision will be scaling our revenue, expanding our Advancement work across Asia, and moving the world’s leading agents of change, including business, donor governments, faith communities, and international development institutions to invest in, leverage and champion IJM’s proven model of change.

The Proposal and Report Writer Lead plays a critical role in ensuring individual, family and corporate foundations in the Asia Pacific Region significantly invest in IJM and partner with us to achieve our 2030 Vision of rescuing millions, protecting half a billion and making justice for the poor unstoppable. This position is responsible for developing compelling proposals that engage and persuade, follow-up reports that meet partner commitments and increase repeat, long-term investment, as well as identifying key areas of research, data, storytelling or more that IJM should develop to improve the quality and return on our proposals. This position requires excellent working relationships with all Asia Pacific Advancement teams, ongoing learning about IJM’s program work in every region and case type, proactively navigating our global IJM staff network, and acting as a liaison between relationship managers, Brand and Comms teams, Finance, Global People Services, and specific program teams in order to gather and align information for each proposal and follow-up report to donors. This position will also be responsible for building core foundations for our Asia Pacific Advancement efforts, including a system to manage proposal and report needs in the region, proposal writing coordination processes, and more. This position requires fresh creative thinking and proven success in storytelling that gives supporters an understanding of slavery and violence and the tangible opportunities to be involved.

This position will be based out of the Asia Pacific Region and report to either the Regional President, Asia Pacific or an Advancement Office Director depending on the location and experience of the candidate.
