Company Overview

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is mandated to lead and coordinate international action to protect and assist refugees and other persons of concern (POC). 

Private Sector Partnerships Service (PSP) sits within UNHCR's Division of External Relations (DER) and is responsible for mobilizing resources from the private sector for refugees. UNHCR has developed a Private Sector Fundraising Strategy focusing on both Individual Giving and Private Sector Partnerships, identifying priority fundraising markets and regions. 

In Thailand, PSP has been achieving outstanding results raising funds for both individual donors and corporate sector. The programme generates the largest portion of funds that go directly to support refugees in Thailand. 

Private Partnerships and Philanthropy (PPH) develops collaboration with corporate, foundations and High Net Worth Individuals (HNWIs)/Major Donors to make a difference to lives of refugees. PPH programme has grown substantially in Thailand and requires additional staff to accelerate the programme performance. 

UNHCR is now looking for a highly motivated and driven PPH fundraiser, with a background in either private sector fundraising, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), communications or marketing to assist the Head of PSP team to develop partnerships with corporate sector and HNWIs and provide cultivation and stewardship for existing donors.
