About Future Frontiers

Future Frontiers exists to ensure young people from disadvantaged backgrounds fulfil their potential, at school and when transitioning to education, employment or training aged 16 and 18. We do this by providing the guidance, networks and opportunities they lack - through face-to-face coaching delivered by business professionals and access to sector role models.

At age 16 and 18 all young people will make decisions that have lifelong consequences. A positive transition into education, employment or training can set them on a path that provides positive life-opportunities – and, often, a route out of poverty. However, young people from disadvantaged backgrounds miss out on the guidance, networks and opportunities readily afforded to their more privileged peers. This drives much of the inequality entrenched in our educational system and hampers social mobility later in life.  Our programme aims to tackle this inequality by providing a tailored package of support as they approach major crossroads in their education.

Why we need you

Future Frontiers is an innovative, dynamic and ambitious organisation that has developed a high impact coaching programme for pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. Future Frontiers is now in an exciting position to be able to scale significantly, requiring an exceptional individual to help deliver our ambitious fundraising strategy.

The successful candidate will lead a small fundraising team and be responsible for all aspects of fundraising including prospecting, bid writing and managing existing relationships. They will also work with our Head of Partnerships, feeding into our evolving corporate fundraising strategy.  They will feel confident engaging with senior stakeholders, be proactive in identifying opportunities and have strong relationship management skills.

Prospect future bids – researching the wide range of trusts and foundations to identify givers that are aligned with the mission of Future Frontiers and the outcomes of our programme.

Write compelling bids – Writing high quality and detailed bids to trusts and foundations in order to reach ambitious voluntary income targets.  This will require an excellent understanding of the charity’s outputs, outcomes and financial activities in order to provide a compelling case for supporting the charity.  Excellent organisational skills are also required to ensure that new and existing bids are submitted in a timely manner and that grant reporting is diligently adhered to.
