Strategic Partnerships Lead, Singapore

Asia Pacific

Who We Are

IJM is the global leader in protecting the poor from violence in the developing world. Our global team of over 1,000 professionals are at work in over 25 countries. Together, we are catalyzing a global revolution that will rescue millions, protect half a billion, and make justice for the poor unstoppable.

Motivated by God’s call to seek justice for the oppressed, we believe that the way we work is as important as the results we achieve. We are a global community that cares for one another. We value joy and celebration, and we strive to provide professional excellence to all those we serve.

The Need

After nearly two decades of continued growth and operational success in pioneering the work of protecting the world’s poorest people from violence, IJM has become an $80 million organization. As IJM continues this trajectory of growth and scaling of our impact, we imagine a global movement in citizen security where governments own and deliver unprecedented justice and protection to the poor, marginalized and vulnerable. A critical driver of this vision will be scaling our revenue, expanding our Advancement work across Asia, and moving the world’s leading agents of change, including business, donor governments, faith communities, and international development institutions to invest in, leverage and champion IJM’s proven model of change.

The Strategic Partnerships Senior Lead plays a critical leadership role in building strategic partnerships and scaling major donor revenue in Singapore. This position supports the Director to assess and cultivate opportunities, build partnerships that fuel IJM Asia Pacific’s (APAC) strategic plan, and ensure the highest level of major donor engagement, experience and retention. This leader is also responsible for adminstrative support, optimizing processes and systems that drive growth and effective execution, building communication tools to retain and nurture partnerships, ensuring a strong data management system, and collaborating with other regional IJM Advancement and Program staff on collaborative partnerships, donor engagement, and communication. This position is based in Singapore office and reports to the IJM Singapore Director.
