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.
This is an exciting opportunity to join the team who recently delivered a major refurbishment of this 1582 Tudor house, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Camden Council, numerous trusts and over 300 individuals.
Alongside the ‘transformation’ of the building we ran a creative 3 year education and outreach programme (‘Opening the Doors’) giving new opportunities to young people who live just 5 minutes away from the house on some of the most deprived estates in the country ( a significant contrast to the Highgate homes across the road). This programme has completed its first cycle and we have some great case studies, tangible outcomes, thorough evaluation and a real understanding of the need.
We believe that the relationships we have built over the past 5 years, the track record we have built with our outreach programme and our mission to be at the centre of a diverse range of communities put us in a strong position to build strategically our trust fundraising and individual giving.
We are therefore looking for a highly motivated, target driven individual to take our fundraising to the next level and integrate it as a key part of our business plan. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop your arts and heritage fundraising career to the next level. You will enjoy working with a diverse range of people in a constantly changing environment, and thrive on the challenges offered by a small, buzzy arts and heritage venue with a highly varied offering.
The Fundraising Executive will have the opportunity to:
- develop a new individual giving programme building on the significant goodwill there is towards us in the community and amongst our users. ‘Lauderdale becomes part of your DNA’ quote from recent survey
- develop a new trusts and foundations programme building on the success of the capital appeal and Opening the Doors
- develop the fundraising systems and approaches needed to ensure superlative donor and funder care
Lauderdale House is a fascinating Grade II* historic house set in the beautiful Waterlow Park, Highgate, North London. It is funded by income from an extensive programme combining performances, classes, creative hires (concerts and exhibitions) and private function hire (weddings, parties, etc).
Working in this beautiful House with views of Waterlow Park is an added bonus!

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.

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.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
Who we are
The London Legal Support Trust works to support Law Centres, Citizens Advice and other legal advice agencies in London and the South East by providing them with grant funding alongside other forms of support. We do this by holding large fundraising events, most notably the London Legal Walk, which raised almost £900,000 this year, and providing the funds through grant rounds to the agencies where they are most needed. We offer our knowledge and experience of the sector to help the agencies become more sustainable. We also work with other grant-making bodies.
We are part of a network of seven Legal Support Trusts across England and in Wales working with the Access to Justice Foundation to support pro bono and advice agencies.
How we work
We raise funds for free legal advice services through a number of sponsored events, most notably the London Legal Walk. Our other events include regional walks, the Great Legal Bake, Great Legal Quiz, London Legal Walkies, and Walk the Thames. We also support people fundraising for LLST through London Marathon, ASICS 10k, Big Half Marathon and Royal Parks Half Marathon.
The money raised is distributed to legal advice centre beneficiaries through three annual small grant rounds, emergency funding and Centres of Excellence Scheme. As well as giving grants, we also provide other sector support such as management and consultancy and money saving schemes to help the agencies to keep their doors open.
