When APHF was established in September 2019, we could not have anticipated the momentous challenge that awaited us. The onset of COVID-19 and the critical work required by Africa CDC from early 2020 propelled APHF into a phase of significant and urgent growth.
The results and impact have been phenomenal. Since its establishment, APHF has raised over $25M from committed donors, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Skoll Foundation and the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation. These donors have supported key areas of work from the establishment of APHF to the Africa CDC programmes we raise funds for, including the COVID-19 response.
Over the past two years, these donors along with a cohort of over 80 of the world’s leading foundations have formed a collective, working closely with APHF to unify efforts in tackling COVID-19 across the continent, supporting Africa CDC and APHF’s organisational priorities and providing solutions to upcoming challenges.
Now, APHF is at a critical juncture. While we have achieved considerable success in a short period of time, we now have the ambitious task to support Africa CDC in strengthening public health systems across the continent now and for future pandemics.
We are currently recruiting for two roles that will be key to achieving this:
Resource Mobilisation Lead
As the backbone of our fundraising team, you will manage our fundraising operation, systems and proposal writing processes, reporting to the External Relations Director and working collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders. As a young and growing organisation with a strong track record, there is scope for you to bring your own skills and experience to the role, supporting to shape fundraising strategy and building relationships with new and existing donors and partners.

External Relations Director
As a young organisation there is plenty of scope for you to implement and shape the foundational elements and structures of a successful fundraising team but with the backing of an already strong fundraising track record. It will require the ambition of an experienced leader who understands the complexities of organisation working on a global level coupled with the flexibility to adapt to the start-up nature of a newly created entity.
