If you are a fundraising professional and love dance and the arts, then we have an exciting opportunity for you to join our team at Déda as freelance Trusts and Foundations fundraiser.

The purpose of this role is to kick start our fundraising ambitions after a period of inactivity and the completion of long-term support from Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Garfield Weston. If you are a fundraiser with an excellent track record with these grant givers we would like to hear from you. We encourage any talented Fundraiser, from any background, who can demonstrate a strong track record to apply.

Hours: 1 - 2 days a week initially for 6 months.

Location: The work can be done remotely with occasional visits to Déda in Derby.

Fee: £200 - £220 a day depending on track record and experience

Expected outputs:

  • Assess existing and new funding needs and prepare an action plan, with targets and timelines, for approaches across the next six to 12 months.
  • Develop approaches and applications for already-identified potential funding sources.
  • Help manage reporting and relationship engagement requirements.
  • Keep databases and other internal information sources up to date.

Experience and skills required:

  • Good working knowledge of preparing fundraising and proposal budgets.
  • Confidence and ability to communicate with donors and potential supporters with passion and expertise.
  • A creative and affective approach with attention to detail and ability to work to deadlines.
