Hamlin Fistula UK
HFUK are dedicated to restoring the health and dignity of women who have survived the horrendous – and preventable – childbirth injury: obstetric fistula. HFUK need a PBOR volunteer to help carry out a stock-take of its organisation and performance prior to recruiting a new CEO.
With the current CEO due to retire in the next year, now is a good time to review HFUK’s organisation and performance. The review would likely focus on a SWOT analysis with a view to identifying options for:
• Recruitment profile of new CEO
• Opportunities for improvement of marketing and fundraising processes
• Targeting current and future donors
HFUK’s primary role is to raise funds for hospitals in Ethiopia and has been successful in this for around 50 years, but largely dependent on major donations made several years ago. The donor base is ageing and this presents a challenge for the future. The organisation is also immature in its use of digital technology and sees this as an improvement area/opportunity.
• Agree Terms of Reference with Chair & CEO
• Information gathering from staff & trustees (e.g. SWOT)
• Analysis of donors (donation patterns & demographics)
• Identify key issues and opportunities (report/present)
This project would suit a volunteer with experience of helping senior managers with strategy (options/decision-making/systems thinking).
Time commitment: 3 - 4 days
Location: All the work can be done remotely (HFUK is based in Birmingham).
