The Manager will work on raising awareness and building a sustainable funding base for Teach For India’s operations in Pune.

View detailed Job Description
Manager, City Development

Position Summary:

The Manager will work on raising awareness and building a sustainable funding base for Teach For India’s operations in Pune.

  • Building a funding base for Teach For India’s operations in Pune
  • Building a local movement of Teach For India alumni which fuels the national movement, and necessitates larger impact, thereby reaching all children

Overview:

Pune City Operations: Pune as “The Oxford of the East” for all children:
Pune’s illustrious history includes being home to some of the most important leaders of the Indian freedom struggle – Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Agarkar, Gopal Krishna Gokhale, Maharshi Karve and last but not the least, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Pune district once stood in the glory of these freedom fighters. The Pune Municipality became an important nucleus for the 19th century’s social and religious reform movements. Pune was also at the center of educational reform and established the importance of education towards a peaceful path to independence due largely to the presence of stalwarts such as Mahatma Jyotiba and Savitribai Phule who started the first schools for girls in India, Pandita Ramabai Ranade who insisted on education as a way forward for women in the country and Maharshi Karve who continued in her footsteps to start the first higher education institutes for girls.

On the backdrop of this illustrious history, the city of Pune currently faces an educational crisis that threatens the moral fabric of our society, from its current well being to its very economic future. Currently, a frighteningly small percentage of the city’s population is privileged to an excellent education - the majority of Pune’s students are failing to receive the education they need and deserve. For far too long, too many people have argued that the problem is not fixable within the school. They contend that we cannot fix education, or a child’s future life opportunities, until we solve the remainder of society’s ills, namely poverty. At the same time, many have altogether refused to acknowledge the impact of educational inequity, instead believing that it’s not a problem that affects the wider population.

In a country where 94% of our 320 million students drop out before the tenth standard and 66% drop out before the fifth standard, those arguments could not be more contrary to the truth. More importantly, we cannot afford to accept them. More than 30% of the country’s population is illiterate. It’s a crisis that directly threatens all of Pune’s three million residents, particularly the half million students currently in school. It is their futures, and the future of this city, that are at stake. This is the vision that the Manager will help engage several stakeholders in.

Responsibilities:
The primary responsibilities of the Manager include but are not limited to:

Donor research and management: There are 9 work streams for different funding sources, namely, Corporates, Individuals, Foundations, Retail, Online, Events, among others. The manager will be responsible for:

  • Work closely with the City Director for creating a strategy and vision for Development work for the city of Pune; leading to sustainable sources for funding
  • Creating strategy for stewardship processes for existing donors leading to renewed donations and planning employee engagement activities with corporate donors
  • Setting up and conducting meetings with prospective donors; Delivering presentations at corporate and donor meetings
  • Planning fundraising and awareness campaigns / events
  • Oversee process of donor reports along with Development Associate and Finance team
  • Work with the Communications team to plan and oversee marketing collateral for various events and campaigns
  • Work with the National Development team to ensure due process is followed in keeping all proposals and documentation up to date on the team site and Salesforce
  • Mentor and guide Development Associate towards accomplishing tasks and achieving goals
  • Report progress to senior leadership (city and national)

Additional responsibilities:

  • Work with local media (newspapers, radio, TV etc.) to create opportunities for advocacy/awareness and engage the citizens of Pune in the Teach For India movement
  • Work with the larger city operations team for assistance during recruitment campaigns, selection activities, inspirED conference and city conferences

Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:

  • Strong organizational skills and project management
  • Strong time management skills and remain flexible in order to accommodate multiple projects simultaneously, with tight deadlines
