About Cochrane

Cochrane is an independent, diverse, global organization that collaborates to produce trusted synthesized evidence, make it accessible to all, and advocate for its use. With a vision for a world of better health for all people where decisions about health and care are informed by high-quality evidence, Cochrane’s work is internationally recognized as the benchmark for high-quality information about the effectiveness of health care.

Cochrane’s mission to provide accessible, credible information to support informed decision-making has never been more important or useful for improving global health. In the digital age, people have much greater access to health information, but little way of knowing whether that information is accurate and unbiased. Cochrane does not accept commercial or conflicted funding, which is vital for generating authoritative and reliable information, working freely, unconstrained by commercial and financial interests.

Purpose of Role

  • Proactively identify and qualify new donors and funding opportunities from global trusts, foundations, and government donors.
  • Develop high-quality funding proposals and build a portfolio of trusts, foundations, and government donors.

  • Manage existing funding agreements and write donor reports.
  • Represent Cochrane at meetings, events, and within the fundraising profession.
  • Position Cochrane as a credible and desirable partner among stakeholders.


The ideal candidate for this role has a thorough understanding of how global trusts, foundations, and government donors operate, as well as experience in raising funds through high-quality proposals and reports. They should have excellent project management and communication skills, as well as sound financial literacy. Knowledge of individuals, donors, and networks in global health is desirable.
