The HALO Trust

Role: Philanthropy & Grants Manager

Salary: £44k – £56k (dependent on experience)

Location: Flexible, candidates can be office based or work remotely. For remote workers, weekly or monthly travel to our Wilton office will be required, depending on candidate location.

Hours: Full-time, 40hrs p/w. Flexible or reduced hours (minimum four days per week) would be considered for the right candidate

Contract: Permanent

Responsible to: Head of Global Grants Partnerships

Key Working Relationships: Global Philanthropy Group, US Philanthropy Team (situated within HALO USA), Global Communication Group, Programme Group, Chief Executive office, Strategy Group


The HALO Trust are looking for an experienced and driven Philanthropy and Grants Manager to lead and develop high value relationships with philanthropic donors, with a focus on Trust and Foundations (and potentially corporates).

The Global Philanthropy Team works to secure support for the delivery of vital projects to save lives and protect livelihoods in conflict affected countries around the world, as well as build organisational resilience and support innovative areas of work. HALO’s philanthropic income has grown significantly in recent years, driven by introductions from our network of trustees, ambassadors and advocates and our focus on strategic and transformational partnerships. We are a small team of highly skilled, experienced and driven fundraisers with a collaborative team culture. The team is supported by a Philanthropy Operations Manager, Philanthropy Assistant and Global Philanthropy Research and Insight Lead (who leads on research and due diligence). In 2024 a Head of Philanthropy and Partnerships for the Middle East will join our team to lead relationship development in this key market.

You will join a fast-paced, fluid and entrepreneurial context, responding to opportunities while laying the critical foundations for strategic growth.

While the role is likely to focus on Trusts and Foundations (and potentially corporates) due to our networked approach and the strategic and interconnected nature of our partnerships, supported by networks of advocates, we do not overly separate relationships between Trusts/Foundations, corporates and HNWIs. This provides team members with varied opportunities in terms of the relationships they lead and the high-level stakeholders they work with. From briefing our Chief Executive prior to a meeting with a new potential donor for Ukraine, to engaging existing partners in the potential expansion of work in the Middle East, you will play a key role in making HALO’s lifesaving work possible.

About Us:

The HALO Trust is the world’s largest humanitarian mine clearance organisation. Our mission is to protect lives and restore livelihoods of people affected by conflict. With an annual turnover of over £120m, we work in 30 countries and territories, from current conflict zones of Ukraine, the West Bank, Libya and Yemen, to post conflict countries such as Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka, and Cambodia.

We clear the explosive remnants of war and address the causes of conflict and fragility – from inadequate control of weapons and ammunition to food insecurity and land degradation. We work in partnership with national governments and local communities, employing and empowering over 13,000 women and men to build safe, resilient and prosperous communities able to withstand the interconnected challenges of conflict, climate change and political and economic instability.

In southern Angola our clearance work is part of a regional approach to develop conservation in support of Angola’s national plan to diversify their economy, protect their natural environment and create sustainable livelihoods. Angola has some of the world’s most important remaining wilderness, but the presence of landmines makes it almost impossible to apply the conservation measures needed to protect this vital resource. By clearing landmines, HALO can lay the foundations for life, agriculture and eco-tourism to thrive.

In Ukraine, HALO is the largest demining organisation, having operated in the Donbas since 2016. Russia’s invasion has resulted in mine laying and explosive contamination on a scale not seen in Europe since the Second World War, including across vast tracts of farmland. This prevents agricultural production, which is critical to Ukraine’s economy and global food security. Across seven regions, more than 1,000 local Ukrainian staff have already enabled the removal of more than 19,000 explosive items and the clearance of more 3.1 million m2 of land- bringing safety to communities and supporting Ukraine’s economic recovery.

True peace cannot come until land is safe. HALO’s work to clear the deadly debris of war is the first step towards recovery and reconstruction. And the return of hope.

About the role:

The HALO Trust has more than doubled in size over the last eight years by growing support from both Governments and philanthropic donors. Global income from philanthropic donors (including the US) has significantly increased over the past five years – from circa £4 million to £15 million in 2022/23 and reaching a further peak of £44 million in 2023/24 in response to exceptional donor support for Ukraine. Unpinning this is growth in six and seven figure partnerships with major donors, corporates and foundations, initiated by our exceptionally well-connected network of trustees and ambassadors – and nurtured by our committed and professional global philanthropy team.

The team has a global remit and this, together with HALO’s extensive geographic footprint, creates significant opportunities for growth in our portfolio of partnerships.

By nurturing and growing high value partnerships this role plays a key role in supporting the delivery of HALO’s life-saving work around the world.
