Mark B.

United Kingdom


I am an experienced international relief and development worker, with 15 years experience in leading and managing teams in the field and in the UK. Most recently I've been leading the Programme Funding and Support team to develop our funding work with our partners and operational programmes. The last 18 months, the team has undergone a considerable change process. Through that, we are building capacity of our internal staff, as well as our partners in learning how to develop their own strategies and approaches to Institutional Fundraising. We are seeing considerable growth in income for our in-country programmes. The UK Team has been reshaped to match the needs of the organisation, and I have initiated and led a "Strengthsfinders" process within the team to build our own capacity on a personal and team basis which appears to be paying off in terms of team confidence. Currently I am reviewing the projections for the next 3 years for Tearfund, how our grants income will look and observing the trends in Institutional Funding which will impact the organisation.
