Your tasks

You would work together with your IAPSS USA and Canada team and the IAPSS Global Fundraising Coordinator. A high degree of autonomy is offered so can you easily prioritize the workload yourself.

Your core area of work will be to source new fundraising deals with various organizations in collaboration with the IAPSS USA and Canada Chair.
