ผู้จัดการ / อาวุโส


PSP Thailand aims to diversify its PPH programme between High Networth Individuals (HNWIs) and Corporate partners. In order to gain access to HNWIs and CEO level executives, it’s essential to have personal connection and one-to-one cultivation strategies, which can be very resource intensive and time consuming. While a PPH post is being classified as fixed term with the recruitment on process, we need additional manpower to ensure the continuity of the growth of PPH programme. The contractor would allow us to conduct more outreach, which would potentially result in more leads being generated, and eventually partnerships. PSP APAC is thus proposing to create a new position with line management through the PSP officer in Thailand.

The PSP Outreach Associate will play a supporting role in increasing Private Sector fundraising income in the country, in particular from Private Partnerships and Philanthropy sources (PPH) i.e. corporations, foundations and High Net-Worth Individuals.

The contractor will work under the supervision of Associate PSP Officer (Thailand) and assist in the identification, cultivation and stewardship of PPH prospects and donors, with a particular focus on outreach and increasingly the visibility of UNHCR amongst key target audiences. The contractor’s primary focus will be to generate new leads in support of UNHCR’s fundraising activities in Thailand.
