Fundraising and Supporter Engagement Manager
Migraine is the third most common disease in the world. Millions of people across the UK are living with the condition right now, and it is ruining far too many lives.
The Migraine Trust has been investing in migraine research, providing high-quality, evidence-based information and support, and campaigning for change for nearly 55 years.
We are now the largest migraine charity in the UK, but with the arrival of a new CEO in March 2019 we are starting to set out new plans to reach more people affected by migraine, involve more people, help more people, and improve more people’s lives.
We need an outstanding fundraising function to be the engine for that ambition.
We are looking for a new Fundraising and Supporter Engagement Manager to lead our three-person Fundraising Team and transform our charity’s fundraising activities.
We want to grow the number of people supporting our charity from just over a thousand currently to many thousands over the next five years. We want the Fundraising Team to use as many effective, innovative and engaging fundraising approaches as possible to get us there, while delivering an amazing experience for our donors.
We are looking for someone very special who even at the end of their stellar career will still look back with huge pride at how their achievements enabled our charity to help improve thousands more lives.
This person will be an outstanding fundraising all-rounder with strategic vision, creativity, limitless enthusiasm and determination, and the ability to not only inspire and lead their own Fundraising Team brilliantly well, but also to work collaboratively and effectively with other teams from across our charity as well.
If that’s you, in return we offer a competitive salary and generous employer pension; an informal, family-friendly and inclusive culture in a newly refurbished central-London office; an absolute commitment to your personal development; and the opportunity to work with some of the most passionate and ‘can do’ people in the charity world.
We want to help you to do amazing things, we want you to be as ambitious for yourself as you are for our charity, and we want you to have fun and challenge yourself at work.
If you’re interested, please send your CV and a cover letter (two sides of A4 max) outlining why you want this job and why you think you would be right for it. The deadline for all applications is Sunday 6 October 2019. Interviews will be on Tuesday 22 October 2019 at The Migraine Trust.

ABOUT THE ECONOMIST FOUNDATION
We are a fast-growing charity that uses the journalistic expertise at The Economist newspaper to develop young people’s news literacy.
What we do: We enable inspiring discussions about the news in schools. We give teachers educational news content, resources and training so they can have lively conversations with their students about current affairs. We also bring together schools from different communities for discussions with each other and leading global experts on the issues, using an innovative online platform.
Why we do it: By joining these discussions, young people build news literacy: the knowledge, skills and confidence to make up their own minds about current affairs. This can make a real difference to a young person’s life: news literacy is hugely valuable socially, in education, the workplace and beyond. We prioritise reaching disadvantaged and marginalised young people in a diverse range of communities.
Our impact: Young people in our core programme, the Burnet News Club, make on average 133% more progress than control group students in news literacy skills including reasoning, healthy scepticism and open-mindedness. More than nine out of ten teachers tell us the programme improves their teaching practice.
Why now: We live in an age of political uncertainty, major global challenges, misinformation and one-sided debates. It is ever more important to understand what’s really happening in the world, but it is becoming harder to do that. News literacy is increasingly seen as a priority in education, business and politics. We're excited about the opportunity this presents to grow our impact, and we have ambitious plans to do this in the coming two years. This new role is essential for delivering our growth plans.
Our story so far: We are very ambitious about growth, but we're building on a strong track record. The Foundation was set up by our Chief Executive from inside The Economist in 2012. Since then, our core programme has achieved national scale and is running in over 80 schools across the UK, reaching 1,600 young people every week. We have generated growing income from diverse sources including leading trusts, foundations and companies. We are actively engaged with the news literacy community, speaking at events internationally and giving input to the Fair Education Alliance, News Literacy Network and parliamentary inquiries.
ABOUT THE ROLE
A new role to enable our ambitious growth plans
We have a bold strategy to scale up our work. Our vision is for it to become common in UK state schools to have high-quality discussions about the news, both within classrooms and with other schools in different communities and countries.
In 2019 - 2021, we plan to make strides towards this vision by doubling the size of our core programme, reaching many thousands more young people with new programmes and beginning to work internationally. In April, we piloted a project which involved schools in Europe, North America, Australia and Argentina.
This role is an exciting opportunity to be directly responsible for enabling this growth, building on our success so far and realising the potential of our strong brand and existing relationships. Our funders and partners to date have included leading foundations, law firms, consultancies and financial institutions.
You will report directly to the Chief Executive and together with her you will lead the development and delivery of our fundraising strategy.
This is a full time role, or it could be four days per week (salary pro-rata) for the right candidate.
Working closely with the Chief Executive, and receiving support from her where needed, you will:
1. (50%) Generate new funding and partnership opportunities to secure five-figure donations.
- Research and identify the right organisations and people to reach out to.
- Make new connections with trusts, foundations and companies.
- Represent the charity at high-level events, and identify opportunities to do so.
- Organise events or experiences to support cultivation progress.
- Design bespoke partnership proposals.
- Apply for grants from trusts and foundations.
- Influence and negotiate to secure new partnerships and donations.
2. (30%) Oversee existing partnerships and donor relationships to maintain and grow long-term support.
- Steward relationships with partners and funders, keeping them engaged and feeling appreciated.
- Project-manage partnerships, maintaining excellent communication.
- Put together high-quality and timely reports for trusts and foundations.
3. (15%) Help to develop the Foundation’s fundraising strategy, embed a culture of fundraising and drive a focus on growth across the organisation.
4. (5%) Help to grow our profile.
- Ensure that our communications activities are effective in engaging new supporters, partners and schools.
- Secure opportunities for the Foundation to be represented at events and in influential conversations relevant to our work.
Skills, attributes and experience
- Passion for fundraising. You are energised by making things happen and seeing a plan through to the end. You enjoy connecting people with a cause, you’re bold enough to ask for support and you aren’t disheartened when an application doesn’t succeed.
- Experience writing proposals / pitching / applying for grants to secure donations of at least five figures. Experience securing donations from a range of sources, including individual philanthropists, grant-making organisations or companies, is desirable.
- Ability to think critically and creatively to solve problems.
- Exceptionally strong communicator: able to listen and build rapport. You are able to generate trust in you and the Foundation’s work, and persuade people to give support.
- Excellent organisational and time management skills: able to stay on top of multiple, varied projects and relationships. Adept at balancing short-term demands with longer-term goals.
- Experience planning and managing successful projects and partnerships.
- The drive, adaptability and initiative to move conversations forward and close them. Proven track record turning ideas into actions and outcomes. Able to work collaboratively but also in a self-directed way.
- Passion for our mission and helping us to grow.
- Teamwork: you take ownership of your work and you enjoy working collaboratively and contributing to a supportive team.
- Experience of the charity sector and / or the UK education system is desirable.
This role involves working with young people, so you will be required to have a DBS check (which we will organise).
ENJOY THE ADVANTAGES OF A SMALL, FRIENDLY CHARITY WITHIN A LARGER BUSINESS
The Economist Foundation is an independent charity that sits within The Economist but also works quite separately.
As we’re a small organisation, we can test and implement new ideas quickly, and every member of staff has a significant impact on our work and direction. We’re an informal and very friendly team. We make each other lots of cups of tea and we like finding excuses for social activities, which have included walking tours and museum trips, mini golf and ice-skating. We work hard but also flexibly, and some of us use that flexibility to be involved with other projects outside of work, from volunteering to film-making.
The Foundation was named by Escape the City as one of The Escape 100: Best Companies to Escape to in 2019.
At the same time, we have the advantages of a larger company. There are excellent benefits at The Economist Group, including a very good pension plan (the company will contribute up to 11%), private medical insurance, gym discounts and much more. There are plenty of opportunities to learn from the expertise in the company. There is a formal mentoring scheme and a good training programme, and the Foundation works closely with senior colleagues in the editorial team as well as many other parts of the business.
We’re supported by a global media brand which is becoming ever more valued in an uncertain world.
We welcome applications from candidates from all backgrounds. We know that diversity within an organisation makes it stronger. And we know that maximising our impact depends on reaching and supporting young people, and teachers, from all backgrounds. So we deeply value diversity in all respects, including age, cultural identity, race, colour, ethnic origin, national origin, gender, religious beliefs, disability, class or sexual orientation. We are passionate about continually improving our understanding of barriers to diversity and inclusion, and finding ways to overcome these in everything we do.
The British Asian Trust is undergoing an exciting and ambitious period of growth. Our annual turnover has more than tripled in recent years helping us to increase our impact in South Asia through meaningful programmes of activity that release people from poverty and allow their full potential to be met.
The next stage of our journey will be dependent upon our expertise in growing and diversifying our income streams, extending our reach within the diaspora and beyond, and maximising the opportunity of being supported by some of the most successful South Asian business leaders and entrepreneurs in the world.
We will operate on the cusp between philanthropy and impact investment, driving programmes that are bold and progressive in their vision for social change. We are also in the process of merging with a major conservation organisation and will be looking to fund and grow a new conservation vertical.
We are now recruiting for a number of key positions in our Fundraising and Operations teams to help make this plan a reality. All jobs are based in our London office.
- Fundraising Manager - ECB (full-time)
- Programme Fundraising Manager (full-time)
- Prospect Research Manager (part time – 0.5 FTE)

We're looking forward to hearing from you - and thank you for applying!
Hatch is in a really great position when it comes to corporate partnerships.
Our programmes are a great fit for corporate funders, because our work is about using business as a force for social change. We already have good relationships with big banks, multinational law firms and major consulting groups. We’ve received significant multi-year CSR funding, and shown we can deliver results. We have an engaged network of Ambassadors and Trustees who can broker introductions. And we have businesses fired up to offer us volunteering hours.
We’re proud of where we are, but we know that we can do more.
That’s where you come in.
Can you bring a systematic approach to this work, and take responsibility for it away from the CEO?
You’ll keep track of our relationships and what we need to do to maintain and where possible, grow them. That means making the most out of existing partnerships as well as finding and developing new opportunities. You’ll do this in a way that is future-proofed, so that other people can pick up where you left off in the multi-year process of on-boarding new corporate supporters. You’ll work to transform our position from that of a traditional grant recipient, doing good at arm’s length, to an active partner in a two-way relationship. That also means you’ll spend a good chunk of your time managing really rewarding volunteering programmes for our partners’ staff, often with support from our partners volunteering coordinators.
In a typical week, you might be:
- meeting with our Programme Managers to make sure we’re getting the most out of our collaboration with corporate partners, and their staff
- checking in with current volunteer mentors, to make sure they are properly supported
- on-boarding new volunteer mentors, and keeping their details in a database so they can easily be matched with future opportunities
- running a periodic training session for volunteer mentors, so they know how to participate effectively in the relationship
- meeting with the volunteer coordinator from a current partner, to give them a progress update on the year’s programme
- calling our main client contact or an existing supporter to find out if they’re happy with how things are going and if there is more we can do for them
- researching potential partners who would be suitable and interested to work with us to either support our Female Founders or our Social Entrepreneurs
- developing, pitching and negotiating with new high-value partners (many of whom are big corporates), from first contact with gatekeepers right the way to presenting a proposal at board level
- brainstorming with the programme delivery teams to explore how our courses can evolve to meet the needs of our partners (without sacrificing the needs of our entrepreneurs)
- contributing towards impact measurement by calculating the number of volunteering hours used in a period, or creating a case study for one of our entrepreneurs
- keeping the information in our CRM (Salesforce) up to date and improving the way we use it to record data
- taking part in Hatch’s practices of continual learning, experimentation and reflection
- You are empathic and are energised by building effective relationships – maybe you’ve held a fundraising role, or worked in account management in the for-profit or not-for-profit sector
- You understand how to build and manage high-value partnerships, including developing contact with senior leaders – you would know how to get a meeting with a Client Partner at a Big Four firm
- You can express yourself compellingly in writing and speech, and have superb presentation skills
- You are not intimidated by the idea of having a big financial target to hit: we’d like you to help us secure £250,000 of new business each year
- It’s an advantage if you already have your own network in the corporate fundraising sector
About Hatch Enterprise
Hatch Enterprise works with entrepreneurs from underrepresented communities to grow smart ideas into successful businesses. We are one of the leading community enterprise charities in the UK and we have grown 25% year on year through increased support from our partners, supporters and funders. In our first five years over 500 people have taken part in our programmes. Our ambition is to be a catalyst for 1000 businesses by 2020.
Last year, cooperating with Peabody, we launched 55 East, a coworking and event space in Elephant and Castle. It’s a place for entrepreneurs to test their business ideas, and it’s also our beautiful new home.
We’re not typical of the third sector. As you would expect from a charity focused on teaching start-up skills, we think and act like a business. We are constantly looking for ways to improve and innovate, and our programmes are run by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs.
We care about nurturing our people and giving them the things they need to succeed. You’ll get a desktop Mac in our funky, cheerful, plant-filled office, with free tea and coffee. And, although we can’t afford to pay you like the private sector, we can offer you a generous holiday allowance (29 days plus bank holidays) and an annual training budget. We are also supportive of part-time working, and have many people on the team who work 4 days a week.
This job is offered as permanent role with a full time salary of £40,000.
We believe business can be a force for good. Our mission is to increase diversity among business owners – and we want to do the same for our team. We are committed to representing a wider cross-section of society than a typical start-up, and we know that means we have to make an effort to understand and accommodate different people’s needs.
If you’ve read this far, and you like the sound of the job, but you’re worried you don’t quite fit the requirements – we’d love it if you went ahead and applied.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
