We are looking for an exceptional and highly driven Trusts & Foundations Executive to join the Philanthropy Team in the Income and Engagement Directorate.
This is a hugely exciting time to work for the UK’s leading dementia charity. The Philanthropy Team is growing, and we have plans to significantly increase our income to fund critical dementia services and research. Over the last 12 months two ground-breaking treatments have shown for the first time that it is possible to slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
Critical to our ambition is the need to raise vital funds from Trusts & Foundations to support dementia research and local and national dementia services. Through the delivery of funding applications, reports and campaigns, this role is focused on securing multiple four and five figure donations that collectively will help us to transform and revolutionise the dementia landscape forever.
This role offers the opportunity to deliver meaningful impact on the lives of people affected by dementia. The role will involve expertly managing a portfolio of warm and cold funders with the aim of building sustainable multi-year relationships. Supported by a Senior Philanthropy Manager, you will work closely with colleagues at all levels of seniority, across Income & Engagement, Operations and Research.
Alzheimer's Society have recently been named on the Sunday Times Best Places to Work 2023! We have achieved excellent scores for workplace happiness, pride, and job satisfaction. This is a fantastic achievement and we're incredibly proud as this is fantastic indication of how far we’ve travelled over the past few years.
We would love to welcome more outstanding people to join our exciting journey to make the greatest difference for people affected by dementia.
This is a homeworking role, but you will be required to travel to attend some meetings and team-days, so you must reside in the UK, have the correct right to work documents to work in the UK and be comfortable/willing to travel to our flagship offices (London or Birmingham) if/when required.
We are looking for someone who has excellent copy writing skills and is confident in turning complex information into compelling funding proposals. You will understand the Philanthropic landscape and have experience in building relationships with donors, funders or clients to solicit financial support.
You will be a confident and engaging communicator, adept at collaborating with stakeholders internally and externally, with a detailed understanding of supporter stewardship and relationship management. You must understand the role of Trusts & Foundations and be curious and highly motivated about ending the devastation caused by dementia.
This role provides a great opportunity for an experienced fundraiser or someone with transferable skills looking to progress or build their career in the third sector. You will get the opportunity to work on a variety of interesting and vital programmes of work that provide help and hope for everyone affected by dementia.
This role sits within the Philanthropy department, and we pride ourselves on being supportive and caring for one another while also being passionate and ambitious about the work we do.
