Operational Context


Area of expertise:   Head of Country Operation


Nature of the Position


The Private Sector Partnerships Service (PSP) sits within UNHCR's Division of External Relations (DER) and is responsible for mobilizing resources from the private sector. UNHCR has developed a US$1 Billion Private Sector Fundraising Strategy 2018-2025.

In this strategy, Thailand is considered as a market with long growth potential, able to raise around $ 10 million in the years to come. Thailand is an increasingly developed and competitive private sector fundraising market that requires an experienced private sector fundraising professional to maximise this potential. This position has a key role to play not only in day-to-day supervision of a growing team (around 10 people + a Face to Face in house team) covering an increasingly complex programme but also through strategic leadership, motivation and staff development. The incumbent will also need to demonstrate an innovative mindset and an ability to be agile and flexible to seize and create opportunities.

Reporting directly to the Regional Senior PSP Officer, he/she will lead the Thailand PSP team covering all PSP related tasks. The position aims to maximize the donor base from the private sector for the Agency, and is responsible for managing the individual giving, leadership giving (corporate/foundation/ major donors), and to strengthen donor retention and donor development. 

In Thailand, where the giving culture is well established, where refugee issues are sensitive and of a relatively low public priority, the external focus of the position is vital to increasing awareness of refugee issues. This requires a mature, seasoned and analytical approach. Communication with various partners such as the media, celebrities and social influencers is a key component of the post, particularly in a country where international staff cannot communicate in the language of the majority of these donors and partners (Thai).  In this area, the incumbent of the post will have to work closely with the Representative (and other UNHCR units), as well as keeping them well informed and engaged in our fundraising operations
