Job description

We are looking for a motivated, experienced individual to lead our corporate fundraising and partnerships, and help develop our grants income, enabling us to expand our work engaging and empowering communities across Britain. You’ll also feed into our advice for members across the community rail movement, to help them develop their approach to fundraising at a grassroots level.

About this role

This new role sits within our People & Funding team, aiming to support income growth and diversification, and resilience across the community rail movement. It’s an exciting opportunity to join a proactive, innovative organisation championing a unique cause, and advance your fundraising career.

The role does not have any direct reports but will work closely with our senior leadership team, events & fundraising manager and member support team, in support of our funding strategy and objectives.

Main responsibilities

  • Provide account management to existing and new corporate relationships, nurturing effective, lasting relationships that help community rail to deliver on its aims around community development, sustainable travel, and inclusion.
  • Carry out prospect research to identify new corporate supporters and relevant grant streams, and be proactive in developing new leads and connections.
  • Liaise with, listen and pitch to existing and new funding leads to: understand our common interests and opportunities for working together to benefit community rail; convey the value they can derive from working with us or upping their support; and secure their ongoing commitment. 
  • Explore and develop joint grant bids by liaising with colleagues, our members and potential external partners to support grant applications that align with our strategic aims.
  • Work cross-team and draw on member and partner insights to understand key funding needs and opportunities and create strong funding proposals and budgets in support of these.
  • Work closely with the director of people and funding to develop our funding strategy and achieve success against our funding objectives.
  • Help to build a strong fundraising culture and ethos across the organisation, and wider community rail movement, including feeding expert advice and input into our member support team, training and events.
  • Participate and contribute to our wider work, in particular helping us to use key events and campaigns such as our Community Rail Awards, to support fundraising.
  • Develop, monitor and maintain key systems and processes, such as effective funder reporting and review meetings, and monitoring and reporting on fundraising KPIs.

Skills, competencies and experience

  1. Skills and experience in third sector fundraising, preferably including corporate fundraising, funder reporting and grants, along with a broad understanding of the full fundraising mix and confidence in identifying and developing new opportunities.
  2. A demonstrable proactive approach to engaging with new and existing funders to set up and continually develop lasting relationships that support a cause.
  3. Ability to prepare high-quality funding proposals/grant applications and reports, adapting the communication style for different audiences and stakeholders to maximise impact.
  4. A skilled communicator (verbal and written) who can gather information and enthuse individuals both internally and externally.
  5. The ability to effectively manage multiple and competing priorities to meet deadlines.
  6. Appreciation of and commitment to community development, empowerment and sustainability, and the value of community engagement in relation to transport.
  7. Excellent organisational skills with firm understanding of KPIs, targets, budgeting, and risk mitigation plans.
  8. Proactive, positive and self-motivated, able to work on own initiative and inspire and enthuse others, and overcome hurdles to achieve results.
  9. IT literate with a good working knowledge of Microsoft Office, the internet and social media.
