Are you an experienced Fundraiser with a track record of generating five and six figure donations from high-net-worth individuals? Or do you have demonstrable experience of working with high-net-worth clients in a private sector role and are looking to work with one of the UKs leading charities?

At Shelter Scotland we are looking for a Senior Philanthropy Manager to play a crucial role in the maintaining the success of our high performing Philanthropy team.  

About you

This is a great opportunity for an experienced Fundraiser or Relationship Manager to make a significant impact on our Philanthropy fundraising at Shelter Scotland. However, we’re keen to offer a development opportunity to an individual with demonstrable related experience and the required skills.

You will have:

  • Excellent communication and relationship-building skills, with a confident approach to donor management.
  • A proactive, enterprising, and personable approach. You will be able to demonstrate your understanding of individuals’ philanthropic goals, and be able to engage, manage and influence internal stakeholders.
  • Confidence using your initiative and collaboration skills, with the ability to proactively identify new opportunities
  • Experience in soliciting five and six figure donations from high-net-worth individuals or working with high-net-worth clients in a private sector role.
  • Experience of line management and supporting the development of a direct report, or the willingness to learn.

About the role and the team

Our philanthropy programme in Scotland has developed significantly over the last three years; this role will be responsible for managing a warm portfolio of donors and building a pipeline of new relationships. You will be attracting new major donors through new products and events, deepening their relationships with us to inspire loyalty to our work tackling homelessness. As the sole major donor Fundraiser in Scotland, supported by a warm and engaged wider team, you will have opportunities to work closely with your service delivery and advocacy colleagues at Shelter Scotland which will enable you to immerse yourself and connect closely with potential donors.  

The Senior Philanthropy Manager (Scotland) will be responsible for inspiring and supportive line management of one Philanthropy Executive who manages their own portfolio of donors across England and Scotland.

The Philanthropy team are high performing, experienced and energetic. Joining as the Senior Philanthropy Manager (Scotland) you will benefit from working together closely to achieve our ambitious plans. We will be growing our income to over £3 million a year, which this role is key to making a reality.
