Job description

Trusts and Grants Officer
Bristol Animal Rescue Centre
Location: St Philip’s, Bristol City
Salary: £26,000 – £28,000 FTE pro-rata for part-time hours depending on experience
Hours: Part-time
Contract: Permanent

About Us

Our mission is to ensure that animals in need within our community receive the compassion, care and respect they deserve. We are committed to helping, healing and homing animals for as long as they need us.

We are looking for a Trusts and Grants Officer to join our busy and creative Fundraising Team. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with previous experience of making successful applications to trusts, foundations and other grant making organisations to build and steward a portfolio of funders as we set out on the beginning of our trusts fundraising journey.

About the role

This role is being offered at a minimum of 14 hours per week and a maximum of 21 hours per week, to be worked during office hours Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm

You will work closely with colleagues across the charity, learning about the different services we provide to both animals and pet owners and shaping projects for funding from your findings.

In particular you will:

  • Research, identify and prioritise applications to trusts and foundations for which Bristol A.R.C. meets the funding criteria.
  • Analyse the trusts and foundations landscape to enable the charity to fully understand the scope for potential funding
  • Work with colleagues across the charity to create strong cases for support and shape projects for funding across all areas of our work. Ensure that we are maximising our trust and foundation funding potential by highlighting the lesser-known areas of our work and wide range of beneficiaries (animals and human).
  • Write and submit high quality, targeted funding applications, including multi-year funding requests where appropriate.
  • Maintain the trusts and foundations prospect and funder records on our fundraising database.
  • Work with the Finance Department to ensure trusts and foundation income is administered correctly.

About you:

  • You will have a creative approach to your work, ensuring that we are maximising our funding potential by highlighting the lesser-known areas of our work and our wide range of beneficiaries both animal and human.
  • You will take a strategic approach, prioritising your workload to ensure you are balancing your time between researching potential funders, making high quality, targeted funding applications and stewarding organisations who have already supported our work.

What we are looking for in you:

  • Proven experience and success in developing and drafting proposals and/or reports raising funds from trusts, foundations and other grant making organisations.
  • Experience of research techniques applicable to identifying funding opportunities and framing funding bids.
  • Able to convey complex information accurately, succinctly and engagingly.
  • Strong verbal and written communications skills and attention to detail.
  • Excellent IT skills, including strong understanding of databases.
  • Resilience and ability to use own initiative, manage competing demands, prioritise workload and meet deadlines.

Application deadline: 6 June 2024 – please note that applications will be considered on a rolling basis and we reserve the right to close the vacancy before this date if a suitable candidate secures the role.
