Otra Cosa Network Marketing Coordinator

Otra Cosa Network is both a UK Registered Charity (No. 1133680) and a registered Peruvian NGO (11126841), whose aim is the provision of volunteers to help community projects improve local people’s quality of life. Otra Cosa is based in a beautiful Peruvian coastal town and has been offering affordable and rewarding volunteering experience to international volunteers since 2004 while providing local network projects with well motivated, carefully selected volunteers.

Otra Cosa Network needs to explore new fundraising opportunities in the UK and in the European Union, building up a varied network of funding support to establish the organisation and ensure long-term commitment to our partner projects. OCN seeks to raise funds from various sources especially those with an interest in Latin America.

This is an exciting opportunity to take on a brand new role working for a vibrant new organization in Peru which is instrumental in changing the lives of many disadvantaged people on a daily basis. The successful applicant will be mainly focusing on building successful relationships with supporters, so the ability to network is crucial.
